In Minnesota, water protectors opposing the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline say they’ve erected a traditional Ojibwe structure directly in the path of the proposed line, which would carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, to a terminal in Superior, Wisconsin. In a statement, the group Anti-Colonial Land Defense said its Indigenous Peoples’ Day action was aimed at stopping “serious threats to our water, land and air, in conjunction with trespassing on Indigenous land.”
