Enbridge Line 3 Pipeline Protestors Brutally Arrested

Last weekend, at least 20 people were arrested in Minnesota for protesting the proposed Enbridge Line 3 pipeline that would transport Canadian tar sands into the United States. The protestors have been fighting Canadian fossil fuel giant Enbridge for five years. The recent arrests were accompanied by tear gas and painful rubber-coated bullets. “The level of brutality that was unleashed on us was very extreme,” said indigenous lawyer and activist Tara Houska, according to Democracy Now.
