Bay Area Organizing to Stop Line 3
Construction of Tar Sands Oil Pipeline Violates Treaty Rights of Minnesota Tribes
Climate and Indigenous rights activists in the Bay Area have been rapidly organizing demonstrations for the efforts to stop the construction of Line 3, a disastrous tarsands oil pipeline that violates the treaty rights of Minnesota tribes. On July 16, five activists were cited at a demonstration at the federal building in San Francisco that was organized to draw attention to President Biden's inaction on the issue. The Line 3 pipeline is a project of Canadian fossil fuel company Enbridge, to increase their exports of climate-destabilizing tar-sands oil.

Enbridge is more than 60% done constructing their proposed Line 3 project, and on July 15 the last restrictions keeping them from drilling under waterways where wild rice grows were lifted. The Anishinaabe women of the RISE Coalition are now calling on people to join them in northern Minnesota to protect the wild rice waters July 19-31. Since June, hundreds of Water Protectors in Minnesota have been participating in lockdowns and blockades to stop the advancement of construction.

Climate and Indigenous rights activists in the Bay Area again stood up in solidarity with a National Day of Action on August 13 to stop the construction of Line 3.
