Stories from the Front-Line of Climate Crises and Indigenous Rights: Back From Line 3
Sun August 1 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
In Northern Minnesota, the multinational vorporation, Enbridge, is hoping to build a pipeline from Alberta, Canada to Duluth Minnesota, carrying tar sands over 300 miles through the land of Anishinaabe People. For over seven years there has been a major resistance to the pipeline, known as Line 3. The resistance is led by Indigenous women and two-spirit people. Within the last year, 600 people have been arrested doing nonviolent direct actions. Resistance camps are positioned next to river crossings, lakes, and wetlands—wherever Enbridge hopes to force their pipeline. Register here!
