    Residents of central Pennsylvania are vowing to continue the fight against a new natural gas pipeline despite setbacks in court.

    A group of citizens fighting the construction of the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline had a small victory when they won an order to halt construction, but that was short-lived.

    The natural gas pipeline project is a $3bn investment, which will see over 300km of new pipeline laid.

    President Donald Trump has voiced his support for such projects despite growing controversy over the industry, but the citizens will continue fighting back, with more complaints filed in court and more acts of civil disobedience planned.

    Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
