Live Monday morning, Sept. 18, 2017 by Unicorn Riot: Alberta tarsands pipeline threatening water, gathering of wild rice, and hunting and fishing rights of local Native American Nations. At 8 a.m., no security was on site.

"Storms are really bad, the carbon in the atmosphere is causing this," says the man who is locked down.

"Here's your war."
"The kids at home are going to suffer for our mistakes."

One man is locked down to halt the flow of Alberta tarsands in Wisconsin, 15 miles from Minnesota, where Enbridge does not have a permit. The man locked down says we are out of time, the hurricanes and wildfires show us that kids will now suffer from this climate change.
Direct Action in Resistance to Line 3 Pipeline: Unicorn Riot is documenting a direct action seeking to prevent construction of Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline expansion.

LAKE SUPERIOR: Water protectors continue their nonviolent direct action and civil disobedience campaign to shut down construction on Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline.
In the early morning of September 14, three water protectors locked themselves inside of and on cars in the middle of two driveways where construction workers dispatch to work sites across the state of Wisconsin.
“I’m locking down today for the water, the land, and the wild rice. This is my mother’s tribal land, I feel compelled to take a stand for it. Cody Cyson - Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe”
“Wild Rice Is Life. That is more than just a statement, it is our way of life. Wild rice - manoomin, the food that grows on top of the water, wild rice is part of an Ojibwe prophecy, it is our culture, it is our food, wild rice is life, water is life. I stand for the water and our manoomin because it’s what our ancestors would have done for us and we take this stand for all of our decedents.” Stuart Perkins - Red Lake Band Of Ojibwe.

ALBERTA tar sands are fracked to extract the bitumen. Bitumen is dirty, dirty, dirty.
