Duluth Public Hearing on Line 3 Pipeline (Oct 18 Duluth MN)

  • DECC - Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The State of Minnesota is holding nine public hearings in September and October on whether or not to build the new Line 3 tar sands pipeline. Show up, speak out! 

Hearing is 1-4 and 6-9pm with a two hour break from 4-6pm. You can register to testify beginning a half hour before the hearing start time. Speaking is by random drawing.

Testimony talking points -- please plan to speak out if you can:https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B9I3HeyLwmEFOEFYc1h2SG51RlU

Testimony is limited to roughly three minutes. Testifiers can cross-examine Enbridge and State of MN witnesses and receive answers as part of their testimony. All testimony becomes part of the public record. The hearing is run by Judge Ann O'Reilly, who will ultimately be recommending whether the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission should approve or deny Enbridge's application to build this new pipeline.

Other hearings statewide -- find the one nearest you:https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/show-up-to-stop-the-line-3-pipeline

More Line 3 info:

In 2014, the Canadian company Enbridge Energy announced plans to construct a “replacement” pipeline in place of the old and failing Line 3 Pipeline. Their proposal is not a true replacement, however, because they are proposing to abandon the old Line 3 in the ground and build a new Line 3 twice the size of the old pipe, carrying as much tar sands oil as Keystone XL. Furthermore, the route for the new pipeline is designed to tear through 160 miles of new corridor, under and alongside some of Minnesota’s best wild rice lakes and the headwaters of the Mississippi.

Enbridge Energy, the largest pipeline company in the world, is responsible for the largest-ever inland oil spill in the continental United States, and has a long history of violations, fines, deception, and deferred maintenance. The people of Minnesota refuse to let this irresponsible foreign corporation destroy our climate, our wild rice, our communities, and our water! We’ve fought hard every step of the way, and we won’t stop until Line 3 is denied.

These hearings are also part of a public comment period, during which you will be able to submit written comments online! We’ll post links here once the comment period begins.

Hold the Line: March and Public Hearing to Stop Line 3 Pipeline (sept 28- St. Paul MN)

On the day of the most important public hearing in St. Paul to decide the fate of the Line 3 pipeline, we the people will stand together to Hold the Line for Our Communities and March to #StopLine3. Our climate, our clean fresh water, our wild rice, and our communities are at risk from this proposed new tar sands pipeline expansion across northern Minnesota.

5pm: March to Stop Line 3 from the Capitol to the Public Hearing (1.3 miles)
6-9pm: Public Hearing on Line 3 at Intercontinental Hotel

Rise up and be in the streets! Demand that Governor Dayton and the Public Utilities Commission hold the line to protect our communities, and say NO to Line 3 pipeline. The fossil fuel industry’s profits are not more important than our state’s abundant natural resources. Water is life!

We will hold a rally at the Capitol and then march to the public hearing at the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown St. Paul to make our voices heard. This hearing is the FINAL chance in St. Paul to show up and make a public comment on Line 3, and our decision makers need to know we will not let this black-snake pipeline poison Minnesota!

Can’t attend the hearing held from 6-9pm? Come to the earlier public hearing, same location (the Intercontinental Hotel), from 1-4pm and join us for the march after that session!

Standing Rock attracted the attention of the world in its historic gathering to fight against the building of the Dakota access pipeline that would risk polluting the water supply. Now, in the aftermath of what appeared to be a failure, behind the scenes the fight continues with successes and many other pipeline front-line camps now being built.

Additionally, efforts have been catalyzed to help the Standing Rock reservation transition to sustainable enterprises, alternative sources of energy, cultural healing, and permaculture projects. Learn what happened at Standing Rock, the water protector movement that is going strong, and the great efforts currently underway that will continue to inspire the world.

We invite all Water Protectors to this Sat evening as our guest, free of charge! We are also offering all Water Protectors a substantially discounted ticket for the whole weekend conference. Please message julbystrova@gmail.com for info and discount code.

The fires lit by Standing Rock have spread to Minnesota. This August, a group of indigenous youth fighting the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline will undertake a 250-mile canoe journey across northern Minnesota to stand for the cleanest lakes, the manoomin (wild rice) beds and the 1855 treaty territories of the Ojibwe people.

We will start where the new Line 3 would cross the headwaters of the great Mississippi River, and travel a traditional canoe route to end at Big Sandy Lake, where hundreds of Ojibwe were killed by the US government in 1850.

We paddle for our grandmothers. We paddle for the grandchildren yet to come. We paddle for our rice, for our berries, and for our medicines. We paddle for our relatives who cannot speak for themselves.

Join us at the headwaters of the Mississippi in the Itasca State Park on August 12 to send off the boats with ceremony.

All indigenous youth are invited to join our paddle! We are also seeking supporters to help with events, collect donations, and drive support vehicles!

All funds raised will be used for supplies and trasportation to bring together youth from all over Turtle Island.

Bemidji Line 3 Pipeline Public Meeting ~ Come and Testify!

Bemidji Line 3 Pipeline Public Meeting ~ Come and Testify!

  • Sanford Center and George W. Nielson Convention Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Minnesota Department of Commerce is hosting 22 public meetings from June 6-22 on the potential environmental and cultural impacts of Enbridge’s Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline that the company wants to build through the Mississippi headwaters. COME TO A PUBLIC MEETING NEAR YOU -- PUBLIC TESTIMONY WILL BE TAKEN -- VERY IMPORTANT TO SHOW UP!

There will be one public meeting in each Minnesota county where the pipeline is designed to cross. 

LOCATION: Sanford Center and George W. Nielson Convention
Center
1111 Event Center Drive NE
Bemidji, MN 56601

DATE/TIME: Thursday, June 22nd 2017
6:00PM-9:00PM

List of other meetings statewide: https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/speak-up-against-the-line-3-tar-sands-pipeline-at-a-public-meeting/ 

Come out to give your thoughts through public testimony, show strength in numbers (even if you don’t testify, your presence means a lot!), and make sure that all the impacts of this project are properly considered.

The upcoming public meetings are specifically in regard to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, a review document that assesses the possible impacts posed by the pipeline project. Your testimony made during the public meeting should be in regard to this particular document, and we’ll post talking points and a document summary soon. The full DEIS and supplements are over 5,000 pages, which you can download here: https://mn.gov/commerce/energyfacilities/resource.html?Id=34695 


In case you are relatively new to this risky plan, here is some background knowledge. In 2014, the Canadian company Enbridge Energy announced plans to construct a “replacement” pipeline in place of the old and failing Line 3 Pipeline. Their proposal is not a true replacement, however, because they are proposing to leave the old Line 3 in the ground and build the new Line 3 with specs that significantly increase the tar sands flow capacity of the old Line 3. Furthermore, the route for the new pipeline is designed to tear through 160 miles of new corridor, under and alongside some of Minnesota’s cleanest and best wild rice lakes.


Enbridge Energy, the company responsible for the largest-ever inland oil spill in the continental United States, has a long history of violations, fines, deception, and deferred maintenance. This company is not a good partner for Minnesota. These public meetings serve as a crucial opportunity for you to voice your perspective and show that this project is too big of a risk for MN communities.

Come out and defend clean water and healthy ecosystems, treaty rights, and a livable climate for all!

There will be one public meeting in each Minnesota county where the pipeline is designed to cross. 

LOCATION: Gully Community Center
120 Main Street
Gully, MN 56646

DATE/TIME: Thursday, June 22nd 2017
10:00AM-1:00PM

List of other meetings statewide: https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/speak-up-against-the-line-3-tar-sands-pipeline-at-a-public-meeting/ 

Come out to give your thoughts through public testimony, show strength in numbers (even if you don’t testify, your presence means a lot!), and make sure that all the impacts of this project are properly considered.

The upcoming public meetings are specifically in regard to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, a review document that assesses the possible impacts posed by the pipeline project. Your testimony made during the public meeting should be in regard to this particular document, and we’ll post talking points and a document summary soon. The full DEIS and supplements are over 5,000 pages, which you can download here: https://mn.gov/commerce/energyfacilities/resource.html?Id=34695 


In case you are relatively new to this risky plan, here is some background knowledge. In 2014, the Canadian company Enbridge Energy announced plans to construct a “replacement” pipeline in place of the old and failing Line 3 Pipeline. Their proposal is not a true replacement, however, because they are proposing to leave the old Line 3 in the ground and build the new Line 3 with specs that significantly increase the tar sands flow capacity of the old Line 3. Furthermore, the route for the new pipeline is designed to tear through 160 miles of new corridor, under and alongside some of Minnesota’s cleanest and best wild rice lakes.


Enbridge Energy, the company responsible for the largest-ever inland oil spill in the continental United States, has a long history of violations, fines, deception, and deferred maintenance. This company is not a good partner for Minnesota. These public meetings serve as a crucial opportunity for you to voice your perspective and show that this project is too big of a risk for MN communities.

Come out and defend clean water and healthy ecosystems, treaty rights, and a livable climate for all!
