Caption: Protest against tar sands refinery. Environmentalists and local residents protesting against the contamination of Sand Creek and the South Platte River with benzene from the Suncor Energy refinery. The refinery processes tar sands it receives by pipeline from Canada, as well as locally-produced crude oil. Benzene levels in the water are as much as 100 times the federal water quality standard. Photographed in Commerce City, Colorado, USA.
