Do you know about Line 3? Maybe you’ve heard of Keystone XL or DAPL (the Dakota Access Pipeline)? Many of us haven’t heard about Line 3… yet. Even though it is the biggest tar sands pipeline project in global human history. Enbridge Corporation is reconstructing a pipeline on Anishnaabe land in occupied Minnesota, and we must rise to stop it – to protect the clean waters, for the wild rice, to show up in solidarity with the indigenous people who live there, & for our collective future.
The songs, speakers, and prayers you’ll hear on this episode come from Treaty People Gathering (TPG), a mass mobilization of native folks & accomplices to Stop Line 3 in early June 2021. In order, you’ll hear voices from TPG’s introductory video, a welcome from Winona LaDuke, Anishnaabe of Honor the Earth, and speeches from Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org, native youth Silas, famed actress & activist Jane Fonda, and Winona LaDuke once more.
Credit & gratitude to Keri Pickett of Honor the Earth, Morgan Brings Plenty of Indigenous Environmental Network, RISE Coalition, Allyson Woodard with Sunrise Movement, and TPG movement media, for gathering & sharing the vital footage featured on this episode.
The call is urgent for allies & accomplices to join water protectors on the front lines this summer to put an end to Line 3. Learn more & take action at stopline3.org.
