Botsfords Fight Back Against Enbridge Land Grab

Last year, the ND courts ruled in favor of Enbridge in a lawsuit against the Botsford family that attempts to condemn their land and force the Sandpiper pipeline on it. The ND judge ruled that Enbridge (a Canadian corporation) could use eminent domain powers to do that. On January 15, 2016, the Botsfords appealed the case to the ND Supreme Court.  They feel that eminent domain should be reserved for things that serve the public, not foreign profits. They feel they have a right to say no, we dont want our farmland to be poisoned. We agree.

Support Honor the Earth on "Give to the Max Day"!

Today, Minnesotans are stepping up and opening their hearts to support the movements and organizations that mean the most to them.  Please consider supporting Honor the Earth and our efforts to protect all the sacred land, water, and life on Mother Earth.   We are living in a time of crisis but we are resilient and powerful.  Together we are leading a graceful transition to a just, green, restorative future.

Senators and Grassroots Leaders Push Bill to Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground

We are honored that our Anishinaabekwe Tara Houska (Zhaabowekwe) was one of the leaders of a federal initiative to keep fossil fuels in the ground.   On Wednesday, November 4, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Jeff Merkley, and national grassroots environmental leaders held a rally and press conference to unveil major new legislation to combat climate change and keep fossil fuels in the ground on public lands.  This legislation would, for the first time, aggressively tackle the impact of oil, gas and coal extraction on federal public lands on climate change.  

We are extremely grateful for Tara's courage in speaking the truth about the disproportionate impact these fossil fuel projects have on indigenous communities, and the need to protect our Mother Earth and future generations. Chi-miigwech, Tara.   Read more...
