People Over Pipelines:
Protecting Our Land and Water

— Photos and Video of the October 2017 Event —

Enbridge’s proposed Line 66 could jeopardize Wisconsin’s major waterways, our property rights, the safety of our communities, our climate, and more. On October 27, 2017, People Over Pipelines brought together tribal members, Enbridge easement-holders, environmentalists, youth activists, and other concerned citizens to learn about pipeline fights around the country, hear from those threatened by Enbridge’s pipelines, and find out how to protect our land and water.

Speakers included Mark Borchardt, property owner & founder of 80 Feet Is Enough!; Paul DeMain, member of the Bear Clan, Oneida/Ojibwe; Jon Greendeer, member of the Ho-Chunk Tribe; affected landowners from up and down the pipeline corridor; three of the thirteen Youth Climate Intervenors who are fighting Enbridge’s Line 3 in Minnesota; and Jane Kleeb, founder of Bold Nebraska and Bold Alliance.

Here’s a slideshow of photos from the event.

Tar Sands Campaign

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divestment Campaign

2016 was the hottest year on record. The Divestment Team focuses on convincing institutions that investments in fossil fuel are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. Banks are our current focus since without their support, dirty pipeline projects can't get funded.

Community Energy Campaign

The Community Energy Team is focused on taking action on and responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.
