Portage to the PUC

The SEEKJOY Community collaborated on an event to raise awareness about the final four dates of questioning and deliberation by the Public Utilities Commission to determine whether the Line 3 Replacement Pipeline Project should be approved or denied.

The action, “Portage to the PUC” involved participants setting boats in the water at Harriet Island, paddling across the Mississippi River to the concrete landing where Sibley Street meets the river from the downtown side and portaging the canoes with banners & signs to the Metro Square building where the PUC offices are located.

Wind Turbine Install near Line 3 Pipeline Route

We were invited up to Pure Bliss Ranch as part of Earth Rhythms 2018, a 3-day Music and Arts Festival north of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota on the White Earth Reservation.

We arrived early yesterday morning before the Pre-Party (June 7th, 2018) and immediately began documenting the install of a 10Kw wind turbine which will offset energy on the ranch used to power this and future events.

Below is the video which has been posted on facebook here:
