The Struggle Continues

This past month was marked by new stages in pipeline battles, in Canada, Minnesota, and North Dakota.  On August 29, 26 people were cited in Bemidji, Minnesota, after stopping traffic for four hours, facing Enbridge’s Line 3 , the largest tar sands pipeline proposal in North America. Ojibwe women were joined with the Board Chair of the Sierra Club, Lauron Blackford, Nellis Kennedy (Sierra Club’s Equity and Inclusion Director), and a number of Minnesota church leaders.  As well, Doug Rasch, a landowner in Clearwater County who faces eminent domain of his land by Enbridge, was cited and charged with disorderly conduct.”
