SANTA CRUZ RALLY to DEMAND: DEFUND LINE 3!

Friday, August 13, 2021 @ 4:00 PM PT

Intersection of River St & Water St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060

Fossil fuel corporation Enbridge is spilling toxic drilling fluid in wetlands next to the Mississippi headwaters as it builds the Line 3 oil pipeline. In response, Water Protectors are chaining themselves to drilling equipment to prevent Enbridge from violating Anishinaabe treaty rights.

Last week, cops assaulted peaceful Water Protectors using tear gas, mace, and rubber bullets. After brutalizing them, police arrested twenty people, including Giniw Collective founder, Tara Houska. The Water Protectors were kept in jail over the weekend, denied medications, placed in solitary and given moldy and inedible food to eat. (see Indybay article post: https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2021/08/02/18844110.php)

This brutality, it is important to remember, is being directly paid for by the Enbridge : https://heated.world/p/police-ask-enbridge-to-pay-for-7500

However, we did receive some good news last week. Three major loans to Enbridge were not renewed, just as we had demanded.

Join us in Santa Cruz to keep demanding DEFUND LINE 3!

#StopLine3 Demonstration
104 River St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, United States

Calling All Santa Cruz Climate Justice Activists!

We will rally at the corner of River St and Water St, downtown Santa Cruz (at Bank of America – one of the main fossil-fuel funders). After demonstrating there for a while, we will walk down and up Pacific Avenue, stopping for some street theater along the way.

We have lots of signs for people to use, with beautiful pre-printed art and messages about Defunding Line 3 (you are also welcome to bring your own signs, with messages about the climate crisis, indigenous rights, the threat of pipeline leaks, the problem of tar sands, and especially the complicity of big banks in fossil fuel infrastructure projects). We will also have small flyers to hand out to interested passers-by, including any cars stopped along the way that are willing to talk to us.

The proposed Line 3 pipeline expansion would despoil the sacred land and water of Minnesota. It is a project of Canadian fossil fuel company Enbridge, to increase their exports of climate-destabilizing tar-sands oil. Line 3 construction violates treaty rights of the indigenous people to fish, hunt and harvest wild rice.
