Enbridge pipeline to Wisconsin draws protests | Local Government | madison.com

On January 31, 2020, opponents of Enbridge Energy’s proposal to cross the aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline in northern Minnesota demonstrated in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Palissad, Minnesota-The air smells like sage. Fat snowflakes fell between the maple and birch trees. Opponents of the oil pipeline clutched the tobacco leaves tightly and threw them into the frozen Mississippi River in prayer.

"We are all made of water," said Tania Obid, a member of the Ojibmir Miller Lakis band. "Don't take water for granted."

Aubid is a water protector and a resident of the Enbridge Energy Line 3 pipeline currently under construction in northern Minnesota. Since November, Abbid has been living in a camp along the pipeline north of Palisade.

The camp in Atkin County is called the "Water Protector Welcome Center." It is home to a group of major pipeline opponents and a gathering place for others, including the 75 students, faculty, staff and their families who visited the site last month.

They held a prayer ceremony along the Mississippi River and talked about issues they thought were related to the replacement project of Line 3: Freshwater and land in Minnesota, especially the territory of the Treaty of Anisinabi.

Obid said: "These are my homes in the territory of the 1855 Treaty." The camp is located on 80 acres of land owned by the Native American Land Trust. It is adjacent to the pipeline.

Obid spent nine months demonstrating on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota to protest the protesters on the Dakota Passage. The protesters sprayed pepper spray, water cannons and some things attacked by dogs.

The demonstrators have taken action to disrupt the construction. A press release on behalf of the Water Conservation Organization stated that three people recently blocked the Embridge site in Savannah State Forest. In early January, eight people were arrested near the city of Hill. In December, militants camped among the trees along the way.

Embrich spokesperson Juli Kellner wrote in an email to the St. Cloud Times: "Our priority is the safety of all-law enforcement workers, men and women, and the protesters themselves. "As a company, we recognize that individuals and groups have the right to legally and peacefully express their views. We do not tolerate any form of illegal activity, including intrusion, vandalism or other hoaxes, and Embrich will strive to maximize Prosecute these people in accordance with the law."

Kellner said that drilling and pipeline expansion in Mississippi will not be carried out until later this year, possibly in the summer.

Construction work began in December and has been about 35% completed. The pipeline will transport crude oil from Canada, through a short section of North Dakota, through Minnesota and into northwest Wisconsin.

It is an alternative route on a new route-south and west of the existing route. This is one of the reasons for the strong opposition. Opponents do not want new fossil fuel infrastructure because it will have an impact on climate change. Indigenous women engaged in water conservation work are more concerned about water degradation, which is important for wild rice harvests.

Supporters of the pipeline see it as an improvement on the aging Line 3, creating jobs and bringing economic benefits, especially in the context of the economic downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Enbridge and Park Rapids Lakes Area Chamber President and CEO Butch De La Hunt recorded a video describing the economic impact of the construction of Line 3 as a "lifeline" in a difficult winter. The hotel industry, especially holiday resorts, provides services for people who are in the process of preparing. And pipelines can bring tax revenue to the community.

"As of December 2020, Enbridge has spent $180 million in tribal countries, communities and contractors... and the Line 3 project has just begun," Kellner wrote. More than 4,400 union members work on Line 3. The contractor provides half of the labor force, while the local union provides the other half.

Artist and cultural organization Shanai Matteson moved to the water conservation camp during the summer. She is familiar with the economic challenges in that part of the state.

"I grew up in Atkin County. My family is very poor. We are struggling to a certain extent because the economy here cannot sustain the lives of the people." Mattson said.

She said: "I think the way to solve this problem is not to continue to rely on the extracted economy, but to imagine and create the next more entrenched and mutually beneficial economy." "When our leaders tell us that things cannot be different. When they say we have to do these jobs, they are lying to us because this is what we do."

Matteson and Aubid both went on a hunger strike. She said that Obid prayed through it to provide fresh water for the people and all of Anishinaabe.

They took the students to see the route of the cleared trees on Line 3. The students signaled "stop" in the direction of the pipeline. Students and security personnel take pictures of each other.

The spokesperson for the Northern Lights Task Force, the County Sheriff’s Union and the Fond Du Lac Reservation Union said that water protectors have always respected law enforcement, which was formed with the formation of the Line 3 plan.

Aitkin County Sheriff Dan Guida (Aitkin County Sheriff Dan Guida) is a member of the task force and frequently visits with opposition figures.

A spokesperson for the working group said via email: "Guida has been working hard to ensure that people are treated as they are, without hindrance in exercising their First Amendment rights." "We support people. The First Amendment right to protest peacefully, and steps have been taken to provide them with a safe place."

Opponents of the pipeline along the way demanded more than just protest space. They want the project to stop. They asked President Joe Biden to intervene in whether he actually blocked the Keystone XL pipeline's permission.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and the Public Utilities Commission issued permits to Enbridge on Line 3. The lawsuit aims to overturn the license of the Army Corps. In a ruling in early February, the Minnesota Court of Appeal ruled on the opponents and allowed the construction of the production line to continue.

Mattson reminded students who visited the camp that the Twin Cities in northern Minnesota had a steady stream of water.

She said: "I hope everyone comes here again."
