Standin’ on the corner, Singin’ the pipeline blues (2x)
Trying to stop that pipeline, Whatta we got to lose?
It’s so tragic that, on the one hand, the Biden administration is like, ’We’re going to have Indigenous Peoples’ Day, but we’re still going to smash you in northern Minnesota and smash the rest of the country.’”
Minnesota Law Enforcement Shared intelligence on Protest Organizers with Pipeline Company, by Alleen Brown
“The email sent out ahead of the training included a series of “Incident Briefing Maps” laying out scenarios where Enbridge and law enforcement might need to coordinate a response. The various scenarios had something in common: They all involved protests.”
Minnesota is home to the headwaters of the three major North American watersheds that drain north to Hudson Bay, south down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico, and east out the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River to the North Atlantic Ocean. Slicing across all three watersheds are two black Enbridge tar sands oil pipelines from North Dakota to Superior, Wisconsin. The southern pipeline is the new “replacement” Line 3 that would carry more than 31-million gallons of oil daily, with a huge dump of carbon emissions into the earth’s atmosphere.

“The proposed monstrosity would snake through 200 pristine lakes and rivers in Northern Minnesota including watersheds for the wild rice that is unique to this part of the world and has been intrinsic to the Anishinaabeg/Ojibwe way of life for centuries. A spill could permanently destroy rice beds as well as the fish and wildlife habitat.”
Tar sands is the dirtiest, most profitable oil that can be sucked out of the earth.
A Broad and Growing Movement says the Time is Now to Stop Line 3. An open letter to Minnesota decision makers. Since 2014 thousands of Minnesotans have shown up at hearings, talked to neighbors, written letters and organized in their communities to oppose Enbridge’s Line 3 tar sands pipeline. Line 3 is a clear danger […]
Why the PIG didn’t squeal and Yes, the Kochs, behind the Keystone Pipeline expansion.
DAPL would be the largest pipeline ever to come out of North Dakota and, at 1,172-miles long, it would be only seven miles shorter than Keystone XL, which was rejected by the president because it didn’t pass his climate test. So it raises the question: Why, of all projects, shouldn’t DAPL have to pass a similar test?
Minnesota’s own tar sands pipeline runs 285-miles across northern Minnesota, online since October 2010, with volume increases in the works larger than Keystone XL. By Susu Jeffrey Photos: Friends of Coldwater TransCanada’s Keystone XL tar sands pipeline holds a climate changing reputation among environmentalists. Another Canadian tar sands oil pipe transport company, Enbridge Energy L.P., with a pipeline […]
