Why are we doing this?

You know about the Line 3 tar sands pipeline that would carry the world’s dirtiest oil across northern MN and the Mississippi headwaters. Line 3 would violate treaty rights and put our climate, water, and communities at risk.

A recent judge’s recommendation left the future of the pipeline project up in the air — the judge said it should not be built along Enbridge’s preferred route, but could potentially be done along the current route along with removing the old pipeline, a route that would cross reservation land and that tribal nations have said they would block. We agree with the MN Department of Commerce and the tribes that Line 3 is not needed regardless of route.

This June, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will make the final decision about this pipeline.Before they do, we want them to hear our message loud and clear: Line 3 is bad for Minnesota. Enbridge may be strong, but our communities are stronger and we will be heard. On May 18-19, we’ll take that message to the PUC and our elected leaders.
