Indigenous Leaders Not Giving Up on Stopping Line 3


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Tara Houska, Attorney and Activist, Founder of the Giniw Collective, co-Founder of Not Your Mascots,


For years indigenous leaders and their allies have been protesting the completion of the Line 3 pipeline upgrade, a project that is expected to carry tar sands through lands that indigenous people rely on. Even under Joe Biden’s administration, which has claimed to back climate justice initiatives, the Line 3 project is moving ahead. Earlier this summer activists faced harsh police repression, pepper spray, non-lethal rubber bullets, and arrests.

Last week hundreds gathered at the Minnesota Capitol, calling on Gov. Tim Walz to “Stop Line 3.” Indigenous leaders this week met with the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders Mary Lawlor about on-going rights violations related to the actions against Line 3. The project is nearly complete but its opponents are not giving up.
