Block (Line 3) Party at the PUC

We’re throwing a 24 hour block party of pipeline resistance in front of the Public Utilities Commission on May 18 & 19! The PUC will be deciding the fate of the Line 3 pipeline in June, and the commissioners need to know exactly where we stand: in solidarity and community to stop this tar sands pipeline.

The Public Utilities Commissioners are the five people who will make the official decision on the Line 3 project.
