Rise Up! Protect the Water * News from the Treaty People Gathering in N Minnesota -

    

Rise up. We rise together for treaties. We rise together for climate. We rise together for our water. We rise together for one another. As Enbridge builds Line 3 through Anishinaabe treaty land and the Mississippi Headwaters, we continue to stand strong in our resistance.

We will not stand by and watch a fossil fuel corporation line its pockets as so much is destroyed, producing oil we don’t need. On June 5-8, we will gather in Northern Minnesota to put our bodies on the line, to stop construction and tell the world that the days of tar sands pipelines are over. Only a major, nonviolent uprising - including direct action - will propel this issue to the top of the nation’s consciousness and force Biden to act. We are rising. Join us.

What is this resistance all about?

If completed, the Line 3 Pipeline will carry 700,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil from Canada each day, violate Indigenous treaty rights, threaten waterways like the Mississippi, and lead to a jaw-dropping 193 millions tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

But as Enbridge continues to build Line 3 through Anishinaabe treaty land and the Mississippi headwaters, an Indigenous-led movement of land defenders and water protectors continues to lead historic resistance.

The Indigenous leadership of the resistance is calling on people from all parts of the country to converge on Minnesota and engage in direct resistance this June 5–8.

Be a part of the historic resistance to the Line 3 Pipeline.

People from around the world will gather in Northern Minnesota to engage in direct action and send a message to the world that the days of tar sands pipelines are over -- but the message will only be heard if as many as possible get involved. Only a major uprising will propel our leaders to act, and we need your help.
