On Sunday, January 24, 2016, all are invited to share an evening of feast, fellowship, and drum, to honor the spirits of our sacred waters and celebrate our love for Mother Earth. Together we will fight to protect our water and create our good future. Together we will stop these pipelines.
Last November, people from all walks of life came together to march and deliver a letter to Enbridge in their Duluth office. The letter, which Enbridge refused to read, asked for consultation with tribal governments (as outlined in Enbridge's own official policies), a full Environmental Impact Statement for any new pipeline, and participation in a formal, public debate. Over two hundred voices rang out that afternoon, and seven were arrested, to tell Enbridge that they do not have our consent, they do not have the right to poison our lakes and wild rice beds, and we will not be silenced by a dysfunctional regulatory process.
Join us on Sunday 1/24 at Peace Church in Duluth for a cross-cultural celebration to continue building our resistance. We will have traditional Anishinaabe foods, drumming, and round dance to honor the spirits of the water. We will also have a direct action training for those interested in participating in the march and rally in Superior, Wisconsin, the very next day (Monday, January 25, 12pm, details on facebook here).
We ask for a sliding scale ($5-$20) contribution to cover the costs of the food, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. You can do that in advance below or just show up!
Brought to you by: Honor the Earth, MN350, MPIRG, Native Lives Matter Coalition, Duluth Superior Save the Kids, Northwoods 350, and many individuals from the Twin Ports and Fond du Lac communities.
