December 27, 2020: NIIBI BIMAADIZIWIN (WATER IS LIFE): ONLINE FORUM TO STOP LINE 3

Event by Northwoods Worker, Taysha Martineau and Carl Lemke Oliver Sack

Hear about on-the-ground efforts to stop Enbridge’s Line 3 tar sands pipeline from water protectors in the Duluth and Fond du Lac area.

Join an online panel discussion featuring:

• Skip Sandman, Fond du Lac Ojibwe elder and spiritual leader and former candidate for Congress• Taysha Martineau, water protector and member of the Gitchigumi Scouts

• Michele Naar-Obed, Four Necessity Valve Turner and leader of Hildegard House Catholic Worker Community

• Shawn Carr, organizer with the American Indian Movement Duluth Chapter

• Mysti Babineau, Climate Justice Organizer with Minnesota 350

Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement project to double the capacity of that tar sands pipeline is the Midwest’s latest black snake. It needlessly risks spreading COVID-19 and increasing human trafficking in our communities, violates Anishinaabe treaty rights, threatens our water, and worsens the climate crisis.

Enbridge received its final state and Federal permits for the pipeline in early December and has begun construction using hundreds of out-of-state workers, despite the crisis level of COVID-19 spread in northern Minnesota. Water protectors from around the country must come together NOW to halt this construction.
