StopLine3 Film Screening and Meeting

  • Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center 788 E 7th Street Saint Paul, Minnesota 55106

Join us Friday evening at the Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center for a screening of "Resist: The Unist'ot'en's Call to Land".

After the film, some folks from Honor the Earth and grassroots volunteers will give an update of our battle to stop the Line 3 pipeline and form working groups to take action. 

Background:

The Line 3 pipeline is a new project proposed to start construction in Minnesota in 2018.

The old Line 3 is an existing Enbridge pipeline that ships crude oil from Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin. It spans northern Minnesota, crossing the Leech Lake and Fond du Lac reservations and l855 and l842 treaty areas. It was built with defective steel in l96l, and has had numerous ruptures and continues to degrade. It is responsible for the largest inland oil spill in US history: https://www.stopline3.org/news/2017/3/6/appy-anniversary-the-largest-inland-oil-spill-in-us-history-happened-today-in-minnesota

Instead of cleaning up this liability, Enbridge is proposing to leave it in the ground and build a $7.5 billion brand new corridor through our watershed and Ojibwe treaty territories, expanding Line 3 into the largest project in Enbridge’s history.  

This would become one of the largest crude oil pipelines in the continent, carrying up to 915,000 barrels per day. We have been fighting it every step of the way. Learn more at StopLine3.org
