Join us on June 3rd in St. Paul to tell the Public Utilities Comission (PUC) that we will not accept a new oil pipeline corridor in the north without genuine consultation with tribal governments and an honest assessment of the impacts on our water and wild rice.
The PUC is going to hear Enbridge's request for a Certificate of Need for the Sandpiper on June 3rd at 10:30am. If approved, this would grant Enbridge the powers of eminent domain. Administrative Law Judge, Eric Lipman, recently gave his recommendation in favor of granting the Certificate of Need, despite clear testimony from many experts documenting the likelihood of extreme environmental and social costs. But the 5-member PUC has the final say.
Meet at the PUC (address below) at 9:30AM on June 3rd. Speakers will include Winona LaDuke and Emma Lockridge, our special guest from Detroit, where the Marathon oil refinery is poisoning an entire community with Enbridge's oil.
Bring drums, signs, banners, and CANOES! Let's show the PUC that we love water more than oil.
