Valdosta, GA - Several students at Valdosta State University took to campus in protest. The VSU Chapter of Students Against Violating the Environment spoke out against the Sabal Trail Pipeline.

While the City of Valdosta and Lowndes County have both passed resolutions opposing the pipeline, SAVE says VSU is the missing piece in the puzzle.

Adrianna Taylor of SAVE says, "We're uniting all of the global divestment groups from across the world and trying to make a message to the fossil fuel industry and to local governments that we want change. We want you guys to divest from fossil fuels and make the switch to alternative fuels."

Taylor also says the organization hopes the University will pledge not to invest any more money in fossil fuels.
