Join MN350 at Midwest Unrest in Washington, D.C.

On August 25th, young people and allies from across the Midwest will join together in Washington, DC for Midwest Unrest an action to demand an immediate stop to the Enbridge corporation’s illegal Alberta Clipper tar sands scandal in Minnesota. Secretary of State John Kerry has the power to stop Enbridge from continuing to sneak tar sands oil through our backyard — we are coming to his front door to make sure he knows where we stand.

Enbridge’s illegal pipeline scheme swaps tar sands oil from the Alberta Clipper pipeline to an alternate pipeline just at the Canada – US border. This bypasses the required environmental review on the Alberta Clipper flow increase so the tar sands can start flowing at capacities similar to Keystone XL. This is wrong and it’s up to us to do something about it.

Over the past two years, we’ve collected petitions, visited senators’ offices, made thousands of calls to the President, and gathered together to build a beautiful, powerful movement. But Secretary Kerry, who has the power to stop the ongoing, illegal flow of dangerous tar sands oil through northern Minnesota with the stroke of a pen, hasn’t noticed. That’s why we need to escalate.

Midwest Unrest is a youth-led call to escalate the fight to save our climate. Some participants will risk arrest. Group transportation will be provided from MN. We encourage people of all ages to answer the young generation’s call to action with legal protest or by joining in non-violent civil disobedience.

Can you stand with us in DC? RSVP today and reserve a spot on a group bus or van to D.C.
