Three Anishinaabe Water Protectors Line 3 Cases Dismissed for Praying at the River
Press Conference Wednesday, July 6 at 10am PT / 1pm ET
Anishanaabe Water Protectors were found not guilty for holding ceremony at the Mississippi River during Line 3 pipeline construction, in exercise of their treaty-reserved rights to protect sacred waters and all life that flows from it.
Join us at a press conference to discuss this major legal victory for Indigenous sovereignty and the right to protect sacred water and ancestral lands.
The three Indigenous Water Protectors were represented through the Civil Liberties Defense Center and Water Protector Legal Collective partnership to boost legal representation capacity for Water Protectors who were arrested while defending Anishinaabe lands, the upper Mississippi watershed, and our collective climate future from construction of the Line 3 tar sands pipeline.
