Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Taysha Martineau about indigenous communities' resistance to "Line 3" Pipeline.
The pipeline corporation Enbridge is facing serious Indigenous opposition to its “Line 3” project bringing tarsands from Alberta, Canada, to Wisconsin, cutting through Minnesota. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, despite claiming to oppose fossil fuel expansion, approved the Line 3 permits prompting hundreds to show up outside his mansion to denounce his actions.
