Fantastic news! Last week, President Joe Biden pledged to rescind the federal permit for the Keystone XL (KXL) Pipeline! This decision was a testament to the power of the movement to stop KXL. Biden chose to put people, the land, and rural economies before corporate greed — and we need him to do it again.
President Biden could revoke Enbridge’s permit for the Line 3 tar sands pipeline in Minnesota just as easily. Line 3 is already being built, despite public outcry. Rural, urban, and suburban — our communities deserve jobs that are long-term and sustainable for our local economies and the land. Line 3 threatens our land, water, and climate, violates Indigenous treaties, puts Indigenous women at risk of violence, and allows outside corporate interests to profit at our expense. Rather than continuing a status quo that harms all of us, we need our leaders to take a stand for us and for future generations.
Governor Tim Walz has refused to follow the science and issued the final state permits for Line 3 despite the will of the Minnesotan majority, but now we have an opportunity to show President Biden that Line 3 would be as disastrous as KXL, and demand he take action. We need him to step in — our state has failed to care for us.
Join LSP and our allies at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 29, for a rally and march through downtown Saint Paul. Masks are required and socially distancing will be enforced. Together, we will demonstrate the strong coalition that is standing up for people and the land. We will gather at Kellogg Park (62 W. Kellogg Blvd.) and walk to the office of the Army Corps of Engineers , the federal agency that issued Line 3's water permits.
If you can join us, dress warm and bring your mask! If you have a barrier around travel or parking expenses, please reach out to me.
