Solidarity & Prayer: A Water Protector Gathering & Rally
On Thursday, December, 17, representatives from different faith and spiritual communities will gather for a circle of prayer and spiritual practice in Palisade in north-central Minnesota. We will come together on land along the Mississippi River owned by Winona LaDuke and Honor the Earth near the construction route of the Enbridge Line 3 crude oil pipeline. This day-long event is co-hosted by Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light and Honor the Earth.
Here’s What We’re Asking You To Do:
Around 1:00 pm, there will be a peaceful and legal rally of protest songs near the construction site. We will be live streaming on MNIPL’s live Facebook feed. Please join in witness and for accountability and share widely. Tag MNIPL (FB, Twitter) and Honor the Earth (FB, Twitter) and use the hashtags #WaterIsLife #StopLine3 #EnbridgeWatch
At 2:00 pm, we will be live streaming the prayer circle through the Facebook event. We need people to watch in solidarity and add your energy, hopes, imaginings, prayers, and spiritual practices from home.
Water protectors and Native leaders are putting their bodies on the line to stop the destructive Enbridge Line 3 oil pipeline. The proposed pipeline violates Native treaty rights, takes wealth out of communities and out of sustainable working class jobs in favor of corporate profit, and threatens to destroy our waterways and water quality.
As people of different traditions, faiths, identities, and experiences, we are being asked to be present with our energy, our love, and our shared belief in an interdependent and interconnected world.
Share your intention to bear witness on December 17 and other ways you’d like to be involved in the fight to Stop Line 3:
