ATKINSON, MN – At sunrise Tuesday morning, water protectors stood up for Mother Earth and erected a tipi in front of a hidden Enbridge Line 3 pipeyard just south of the Fond du Lac reservation in Northern Minnesota. One water protector was locked to a tipi erected in the path of trucks unloading Line 3 pipes in a location hidden behind Omar’s Sand and Gravel pit.
Police gave no warnings or notice and arrested two other water protectors. After, police pulled on the tipi poles of the water protector suspended 25 feet in the air, which nearly toppled. Once the water protector was on the ground, they were also arrested and are currently being held in Carlton County Jail.
