The situation in Anishinaabe territory is dire right now.

Enbridge is spilling drilling fluid into the wetlands of the Mississippi headwaters as it rushes to complete the Line 3 pipeline. Hundreds of Water Protectors are chaining themselves to drilling equipment to prevent Enbridge from violating Anishinaabe treaty rights. Enbridge is currently violating 21 river crossings and hundreds of waterways across Minnesota. If completed, the expanded tar sands pipeline would unleash the emissions equivalent of fifty new coal plants.

On July 23rd, major banks (such as JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Citibank) had loans worth nearly $6 billion to Enbridge, the company behind Line 3, that were due for renewal. We made it clear that the banks must walk away from those loans if they cared at all about curtailing the climate crisis & respecting Indigenous rights. In the past twelve months, nearly every major bank has pledged to achieve “net-zero” climate emissions by 2050. Yet, the banks chose to renew the loans and to keep funding Line 3.

This is greenwashing at its worst — so on Friday, August 13th, activists from around the country will demand banks stop funding the Line 3 pipeline, and all other fossil fuel projects.
