Keystone XL has been stopped, but Minnesota’s tar sands bomb, Line 3, is still under construction — violating treaty rights, threatening over 200 bodies of water with an oil spill, and hastening climate change with a carbon equivalent of 50 coal-fired power plants. President Biden revoked the federal permits for KXL; he can do the same for Line 3, and halt construction with the stroke of a pen.

MN350 and allies are leading an escalating campaign against this pipeline and fighting alongside an Indigenous-led frontline resistance in northern MN. Lawsuits against Line 3 have been filed by many opposing groups, including sovereign Indigenous nations, yet construction on the ground is accelerating

What can we do, here in our region? Quite a lot!

  1. You can still RSVP for the #DefundLine3 Campaign Kick-Off event TOMORROW, February 16th at 5 PST. At the campaign kick-off event, Anishinaabe frontline leaders Tara Houska and Taysha Martineau will share stories from the frontlines, and organizers will walk through the campaign plan step-by-step, let you know how you can participate at every stage, and give you the tools you need to get involved.

  3. There is an Art Storm happening all day Wednesday, from 6am PST to 6pm PST–join for any of it!
  4. This link has phonebank options for the next five Wednesdays.
  5. And if you haven’t yet, click here to send the CEOs of 18 major banks a message that they MUST walk away from Enbridge and Line 3 on March 31st.

Biden has the power to stop this pipeline that would carry nearly a million barrels of tar sands per day through untouched wetlands and the treaty territories of Anishinaabe people, through the Mississippi headwaters, and to the shores of Lake Superior. Now is the time to show the strength of our opposition to this illegally approved project and make our demands clear: We must stop Line 3.

In solidarity,
350 Seattle
