Join us for a benefit event with live music at Boundary in Downtown Stillwater, MN on April 10th to support the Line 3 Legal Defense Fund!
As of this moment, 587 known water protector cases are currently open and moving through MN’s court system, with over 953 total which had been documented since the beginning of the pipeline’s construction.
Defendants are facing outrageously trumped-up charges including felony theft charges when NO theft has occurred, the absurd charge of felony “attempted assisted suicide” and gross misdemeanors for “trespass on critical infrastructure”.
The Line 3 Legal Defense Fund (L3LDF) is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization founded in 2019 based in the Twin Cities organized to provide “support to people facing arrest, jail time, and state repression because of their opposition to Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline project.”
This event will feature live original music from Eóin Small & friends, with words from defendants on why they took the actions they did and ways to support as we move into upcoming spring & summer court proceedings.
What to Expect!
Music! – Eóin Small will be carrying an acoustic singer-songwritery vibe with an offering of original songs & stories.
Food Menu! – Boundary has an amazing lunch menu that will be available to attendees! A portion of proceeds from food will be contributed to the Line 3 Legal Defense Fund.
Water Shots – As part of the fundraiser, shots of WATER will be available at the “bar” inside the venue.
Other Drinks – Boundary has a variety of caffeinated & non-caffeinated non-alcoholic beverages available – make sure to peep their menu! Note: there will not be any beer/alcohol sold at this gathering 🙂
“Community Marketplace” – SeekJoy will have patches, water droplets, #BringBackTheHanky’s and stickers available for purchase with 50/50 split on proceeds going to the Legal Defense Fund! If you’re an artist with works that you’d like to have a part of this effort on a 50/50 basis, please reach out!
Parking – Nearby parking can be an issue so plan to walk a little ways to the venue. There is a parking lot off Nelson on the eastern side of venue and a lot on Water St to the north, as well as street parking throughout downtown Stillwater
Donations – This IS a fundraising event and although there’s no “Cover Charge” or ticketing, we strongly encourage you to make a contribution! The Line 3 Legal Defense Fund is a registered 501c4 Non-Profit.
Covid – Let’s be covid-conscious! We will be encouraging folks to mask-up (and will have some n95s available if you don’t have one), but this will not be a requirement per state & venue guidelines. Let’s be respectful of space and make sure everyone feels safe & supported!The video includes footage from the speakers at the end of the event blending the need for action at a local level to protect the water and the rice.
