Hold the Line: March and Public Hearing to Stop Line 3 Pipeline

On the day of the most important public hearing in St. Paul to decide the fate of the Line 3 pipeline, we the people will stand together to Hold the Line for Our Communities and March to #StopLine3. Our climate, our clean fresh water, our wild rice, and our communities are at risk from this proposed

new tar sands pipeline expansion across northern Minnesota.

4pm: Jingle Dress Dancers & Rally at the Capitol
5pm: March to Stop Line 3 from the Capitol to the Public Hearing (1.3 miles)
6-9pm: Public Hearing on Line 3 at Intercontinental Hotel

Rise up and be in the streets! Demand that Governor Dayton and the Public Utilities Commission hold the line to protect our communities, and say NO to Line 3 pipeline. The fossil fuel industry’s profits are not more important than our state’s abundant natural resources. Water is life!

We will hold a rally at the Capitol and then march to the public hearing at the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown St. Paul to make our voices heard. This hearing is the FINAL chance in St. Paul to show up and make a public comment on Line 3, and our decision makers need to know we will not let this black-snake pipeline poison Minnesota!

Can’t attend the hearing held from 6-9pm? Come to the earlier public hearing, same location (the Intercontinental Hotel), from 1-4pm and join us for the march after that session!

MORE INFO ABOUT LINE 3:
In 2014, the Canadian company Enbridge Energy announced plans to construct a “replacement” pipeline in place of the old and failing Line 3 Pipeline. Their proposal is not a true replacement, however, because they are proposing to abandon the old Line 3 in the ground and build a new Line 3 twice the size of the old pipe, carrying as much tar sands oil as Keystone XL. Furthermore, the route for the new pipeline is designed to tear through 160 miles of new corridor, under and alongside some of Minnesota’s best wild rice lakes and the headwaters of the Mississippi.

Enbridge Energy, the largest pipeline company in the world, is responsible for the largest-ever inland oil spill in the continental United States, and has a long history of violations, fines, deception, and deferred maintenance. The people of Minnesota refuse to let this irresponsible foreign corporation destroy our climate, our wild rice, our communities, and our water! We’ve fought hard every step of the way, and we won’t stop until Line 3 is denied.

There are 9 public hearings across Minnesota in September and October: https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/show-up-to-stop-the-line-3-pipeline

These hearings are also part of a public comment period, during which you will be able to submit written comments online! We’ll post links here once the comment period begins.
