Flying over the Current & Proposed Line 3 Pipeline Route

We had a chance to connect with Bill Paulson, Community Leader at Camp Turtle Island-MikinaakMinis Genawendang Nibi Endazhi-gabeshing outside the White Earth Reservation, as part of a flyover documenting the current and proposed routes for the Line 3 Tar Sands Oil Replacement Project in North/Central Minnesota.

Paulson has been engaged with the resistance effort to oppose the Line 3 Replacement Project for years and is an expert witness with the parties intervening against the proposal. A video of the flyover has been put together and is available below, on the #StopLine3 SCI page as well as via facebook.

 

 

All footage captured during the flyover will be released into the public domain for anybody to use – if you are interested in using the footage stay tuned for the link in a future post.
