Indigenous Activists Continue Resistance Against Line 3 After Setback in Court

HeadlineJun 16, 2021

Water and land defenders in Minnesota are continuing resistance actions against Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline. On Tuesday, activists blockaded a semi-truck loaded with drilling equipment, lying on the ground and attaching themselves to the vehicle. At least 30 people were arrested Tuesday. This came a day after a Minnesota court upheld a state approval of the pipeline’s expansion. The Native-led group Honor the Earth said, “Line 3 is a clear violation of human rights + cultural rights to live as Anishinaabe people promised in the #1855Treaty. [President Biden] must #StopLine3.” Click here to see our interview with Indigenous leader Winona LaDuke.
