Stop the Line 3 Pipeline
This petition had 38,907 supporters
What if we told you that another pipeline even longer than the Dakota Access Pipeline was threatening our water, land, and the treaty rights of indigenous communities from the U.S. to Canada? This project will cement young people like ourselves into a lifetime of dangerous climate change, and we need your help to stop it.
Will you stand with the future generations? Sign to ask the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission to stop Enbridge’s Line 3 Pipeline.
We, the Youth Climate Interveners, are a group of 13 young people under the age of 25 who recently won legal standing in the case against the pipeline. After much work, we were able to prove that we would suffer disproportionate personal harm by this project, which will carry up to 760,000 barrels of tar sands oil per day.
This oil must stay in the ground in order for the earth to remain liveable for the young people building a future on it. Add your name to the petition – for us.
Rose is a member of the Ho-Chunk and Santee Dakota nations, and has seen how oil projects ignore Native American Treaty rights and increase violence against indigenous women. We feel a responsibility to prevent the harmful effects the project’s construction will cause to the creatures, waterways and people in its path and to stop the carbon which threatens the earth and will be produced because of this pipeline.
Young people deserve clean water and a future free from fossil fuels – we all do. Don’t let Enbridge take that away from us.
