MONTPELIER, Vermont — More than 200 people, including a small marching band, converged on the Vermont Statehouse to protest the Vermont Gas Systems pipeline being built to serve the western part of the state.

The rally organized by the group Rising Tide Vermont featured 10-foot-tall puppets and banners saying "System Change, Not Climate Change."

The event included a confrontation with police who told the protesters they weren't allowed to enter the Statehouse with musical instruments and signs. No arrests were made.
