NO PIPELINES ON NATIVE LAND

Chippewas of the Thames First Nation were not consulted in regards to the Line 9 pipeline and reversal to accomodate tar sands expansion. This is a violation of Indigenous Rights! Chippewa is fighting to protect the land and water and needs your support to help cover the cost of their supreme court case!

More Info:

The Enbridge Line 9 pipeline project passes within 50km of 18 First Nation communities and impacts the watersheds of several more. Using data from Enbridge’s own reports, the Polaris Institute calculated that 804 spills occurred on Enbridge pipelines between 1999 and 2010. These spills released approximately 161,475 barrels (25,672.5 m3) of crude oil into the environment. The Canadian government and Enbridge want to reverse and increase the flow of tar sands through the pipeline, causing a major threat to the integrity of the great lakes. The pipeline is in violation of several treaties and agreements including the Two Row Wampum and the UN declaration on the rights of Indigenous people.
