line 9 is a local project with broad implications in the struggles against capitalism, racism, climate change and land/water defense. pipeline resistance is seeded in land-based indigenous resistance to colonialism.
continuing to resist this project – like all other pipeline projects – is essential, despite project approval. the fact remains that line 9 is still pumping tarsands – the extraction and refining of which actively kills people. indigenous nations continue to resist this project and others; join them, and refuse to accept the fate industry has handed us all.
direct action is an intervention meant to bring about immediate and effective relief or change. it has been effectively & successfully used throughout history.
pipeline infrastructure, maintenance and construction projects offer unique points for intervention and resistance & have the opportunity to make direct impacts on the corporations and exploitations we rage against.
remember; no matter how an exploitative capitalist venture frames their work, the only authentic way to ensure our own safety against these threats is to stop these projects and mitigate the growth of the tarsands and petroleum industry altogether.
by using direct action to resist line 9 – and projects like it – we are taking the necessary action to protect our communities, this earth and our future.
a quick note on security etc.
if you follow links to original sources be aware that most sites [like the NEB] attempt to capture IP addresses & metadata. using public computers, tor, tails or other proxies can help with this IF you use them properly.
while all the files stored on this site have been cleaned of metadata downloading & taking ownership of them may record new data which can identify your system. this matters if you are reposting the file in a way that aggravates the powers that be. tails has a utility to clean & encrypt files. we recommend it – or something.
play safe kids.
