Yesterday 200 plus people, plus Reps. Flanagan and Becker-Finn, packed a MN Public Utilities Commission (PUC) meeting in St. Paul, urging them to wait for a tribal-led cultural survey of the area to be impacted by Line 3 before they issue any permits to Enbridge. #StopLine3 #LoveWaterNotOil. The PUC said NO.
If you agree that this decision does not respect Tribal concerns and that the PUC should include the tribal impacts of Line 3 in their decision-making process, send a message to the PUC commissioners BEFORE 2/27.
“When building projects through indigenous land, rarely ever are the tribes being affected taken into consideration, leaving the fate of their communities and cultural sites uncertain. ….This land is more than just soil to the Anishinaabe, it is sacred and deserves to be preserved for the next seven generations.” -- Rose Whipple, 16 year old #YouthClimateIntervenor, member of the Isanti Dakota and Ho-Chunk Nations.
