Tell Attorney General Ellison & Gov. Walz: Drop the Charges Against Water Protectors!
Hundreds of water protectors are currently facing criminal charges in Minnesota for standing in defense of the water, the climate, and the treaty rights of the Anishinaabeg people.
Water protectors put their bodies on the line to stop Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline. Police forces – directly funded by Enbridge – have responded to this movement with surveillance, harassment, physical torture ("pain compliance"), and trumped-up charges, including felonies. In this time of climate catastrophe, Attorney General Ellison and Governor Walz must listen to water protectors instead of criminalizing and prosecuting them.
Send a letter to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and Governor Walz today to tell them: Drop The Charges! Check out the Drop the Charges website for more campaign information!
Note: By sending a letter, your name will also be added to a petition to Drop the Charges
