#DefundLine3 – Global Day of Action in Santa Barbara
May 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm
Sunrise – Santa Barbara is organizing an action on Friday, May 7th, in conjunction with Stop the Money Pipeline activists around the country.
Line 3 is being built through Indigenous territory without consent. The Red Lake Nation, White Earth Nation and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe are all suing to stop the pipeline. Prominent native activists have described the pipeline as “cultural genocide” and Indigenous activists in northern Minnesota are leading the direct actions on the ground.
If built, Line 3 would release as much greenhouse gas into the atmosphere as fifty new coal-fired power plants. It would release as much greenhouse gas as the entire rest of the state of Minnesota.
The fight to stop this pipeline is the fight to save our planet.
