“All of these states are making some bad decisions to let such a risky, risky pipeline company continue operations at the end of the tar sands era. We’re gonna keep battling it out, river by river.”
That’s water protector Winona LaDuke. Last week, Friday host Esty Dinur spoke with LaDuke on-site at the Shell River shortly after she was released from the Aitken County Jail. She was first arrested for sitting together in prayer with six other women protesting the construction of Enbridge Line 3 oil pipeline, then later taken back into custody for violating the terms of her release.
For today’s show, we first air this powerful interview with Winona LaDuke. Then, Esty reflects on her recent visit to the water protector camp at the Shell River in northern Minnesota.
