In Minnesota, a powerful Indigenous-led resistance is standing up to Enbridge’s Line 3 Pipeline and working to protect treaty rights, water, and climate.
Line 3 would be one of the largest crude oil pipelines in the world, carrying up to 760,000 barrels per day of tar sands crude—one of the dirtiest fuels on earth.
In order to protect our lands, air, water, climate, and wild rice, and uphold the rights of the Anishinaabe people, Line 3 must be stopped.
The proposed route for Line 3 crosses 227 lakes and rivers, including the Mississippi River and rivers that feed directly into Lake Superior. A spill from this pipeline would be devastating to these precious waterways and threaten wild rice stands that many Minnesotans depend on as a staple food.
Resistance efforts have been going on for five years already and are now in an urgent stage, with construction having been launched.
But it’s not a done deal. In fact, President Biden has the power to put a stop immediately to the construction of Line 3 by revoking its presidential permit, as he recently did for the Keystone XL pipeline.
Please join over 200,000 other people who have signed the petition below, calling on President Biden to stop Line 3.
