Today, the Great Lakes region faces an unprecedented invasion of Canadian tar sands oil, thanks to the expansion plans of oil pipeline giant Enbridge. These pipelines endanger our Anishinaabe Akiing and the water, wild rice, fisheries, and medicinal plants we depend on for survival. They are a violation of our treaty-protected rights to subsist off the land. Our Minnesota elected officials and regulatory agencies have failed to stand up to Big Oil and protect our communities from the threat of tar sands pipelines.
On June 6th, thousands of people will be converging in St. Paul MN for the largest anti-tar sands march the Midwest has ever seen. Click here to RSVP: tarsandsresistance.org/
More details are on their way, but for now: circle June 6th on your calendar, and get ready to march to resist tar sands.
