NM Climate Justice started this petition to Secretary of Interior Deb Haaland

We are urging Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland to visit northern Minnesota to learn about the impacts of the Line 3 pipeline project within Indigenous communities. 

The Line 3 tar sands pipeline is currently under construction, and is set to cross more than 200 waterways and cut through the 1854 and 1855 treaty territory where Anishinaabe people retain the right to hunt, fish, gather medicines, and harvest wild rice.

As Minnesota experiences a severe drought, Enbridge, the Canadian company building Line 3, will be using nearly 5 billion gallons of water,10 times more than it originally requested for construction. The Line 3 pipeline will unlock CO2emissions equivalent to 50 coal plants, and is projected to cost society more than $287 billion in climate impacts in just its first 30 years of operation.

Article VI of the U.S. Constitution says, “all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land.” The State of Minnesota and the federal government have a responsibility to abide by the U.S. Constitution. 

We are asking Secretary Haaland to meet with Tribal Elders as soon as possible to learn how the construction of Line3 impacts their communities. Honor the Treaties. Protect the Water.
