Enbridge Tar Sands Resistance Tour
Big oil companies like Enbridge are threatening the Midwest and Great Lakes region with dirty tar sands pipelines and toxic fracking infrastructure.
But communities across the Midwest are coming together to protect our water and stop this climate catastrophe.
From April 14th to the 30th, the Enbridge Tar Sands Resistance Tour is traveling from Michigan to Minnesota to build the resistance across the Midwest. At each stop we’ll hear from community leaders about the threat Enbridge and tar sands poses to our communities, and we’ll strategize and make action plans for how to stop it.
At the end of the tour, with thousands of new people engaged, we will all come together in Minneapolis for a mass action against the Alberta Clipper pipeline which has already illegally started transporting tar sands, and must be stopped!
