#DEFUNDLINE3: Because Stopping This Pipeline is a Matter of Justice

“The fight to stop the Line 3 tar sands pipeline is about justice for the land. It’s about justice for the water. Justice for Anishinaabe people whose culture and way of life it threatens. Justice for people all over the world who are being impacted by the climate crisis.

Back in 2016, I helped to launch #DefundDAPL. As Indigenous Water Protectors were being brutalized by racist, militarized police―shot with rubber bullets, bitten by attack dogs and blasted with water cannons in the middle of winter―#DefundDAPL spread nationally. Protests erupted in cities around the country, close to a dozen city governments committed to breaking ties with the funders of DAPL and nearly $100 million in personal accounts were moved away from the funders of that colonial pipeline.

Now is the time for us to defund the White Supremacist, carbon bomb that is Line 3. As an Anishinaabe woman it is my duty to protect the water, the land, and my people. I am moved to act because I love the people, the four-legged, the winged, the finned, the land, the water.

It is from this sense of duty that I am asking you to join us in this campaign. Together, I know that we can do this. Throughout history people-powered movements have changed the world. And they sure as hell can stop Line 3."
- A Call to action and solidarity from Tara Houska (Couchiching First Nation Anishinaabe) currently engaged in the movement to defund fossil fuels and a years-long struggle against Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline.

Majority Action released their call to Fire Wells Fargo Board Chairman Charles Noski, along with other key corporate leader opposing defunding Fossil Fuels. Stop the Money Pipeline will be working in conjunction with our San Francisco action to build national pressure to fire Noski and Defund Line 3/Fossil Fuels.

From their release today:
Last year we demanded that climate-denial architect Lee Raymond be removed from the JPMorgan Chase board of directors. Lots of major shareholders, including 11 state treasurers, heard us and, after a strong no vote, Lee Raymond left the board.

This year we need to build on that success. Not every director is a climate super-villain, but too many are doing too little to transform their companies into sustainable practices. They need to be held accountable - which means fired. We are calling this "Proxy [shareholder] Voting for a 1.5 Degrees World."
