Have you ever seen the exposed oil pipelines running through the treasured waterways of Minnesota? Do you know what the oil distribution company Enbridge Energy Corp. and the MN Public Utilities Commission is planning to risk in expanding the capacity of these pipelines?
Join us for Minnesota’s Tar Sands Fight: A Trip to the Pipeline. This will be an all day excursion that will include visits to the Clearbrook Tank Farms, exposed pipeline at Cass Lake and the Red Lake Encampment. Marty Cobenais, pipeline organizer for the Indigenous Environmental Network, will be leading the tour.
When: Wednesday, June 26 leaving at 7am and returning around 9pm.
Cost: $50 per person — this covers transportation and one meal.
How: Click here to RSVP!
Our goals of this trip are to connect folks and see first hand the impacts to local communities, learn more about the Enbridge expansion and what that means for those living along the pipeline, for the air and watersheds, to attract media attention as we raise awareness about the local tar sands fight. Please spread the word via facebook and invite others! RSVP today so we can plan accordingly!
