Stop Line 3

Campaign Spotlight

What is Line 3?

Similar to the Keystone XL pipeline, Enbridge Energy’s Line 3 is a massive tar sands oil pipeline slated for construction across the northern part of Minnesota, from Canada’s tar sands region to Superior, Wisconsin. If built, the pipeline would carry some of the dirtiest oil in the world, tar sands crude, even as cleaner energies are becoming cheaper and cheaper and provide more long-lasting jobs throughout the nation. The proposed pipeline would cross over 200 bodies of water, including the Mississippi River. Twice. Line 3 also violates several treaties with the Ojibwe people which establishes the right for Indigenous people to hunt, fish, and gather along the proposed pipeline route.

How will we win?

We stood up to the Keystone and Sandpiper pipelines and we can stop Line 3. We know Minnesotans are with us. Of the 72,000 public comments collected about Line 3, 68,000 opposed the pipeline. That’s 94% of the public. Standing together we can:

  • Uphold environmental laws to prevent Enbridge from securing the 29 permits still needed to build Line 3.
  • Support the multiple lawsuits against this project, including from Minnesota’s own Department of Commerce.
  • Demand that Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Flanagan stop Enbridge from doing “pre-constructionright now, which includes moving in pipes and clear cutting forests.
We need you.

In the face a global climate crisis, Line 3 is a direct threat to our collective future. Sign this Pledge of Resistance and help create a world with clean water, clean energy, and a healthy climate for all people.

Additionally, you can get more involved by joining our Pipeline Resistance Team to plan actions such as protests or canvasses to stop line 3.
