69 Arrests Made During Line 3 Protest Outside Governor’s Mansion

28August 2021

Protesters, who have been calling themselves “water protectors,” say the pipeline is a threat to the environment and intrudes on Indigenous land. Enbridge, a Canadian company, says the pipeline is safe and is bringing jobs to northern Minnesota.

On Friday, at least four protesters demonstrating against the pipeline were arrested in front of the Minnesota State Capitol, after dozens of Minnesota State Patrol troopers surrounded a teepee on the capitol mall, where demonstrators were holding a ceremony and singing traditional Native American songs.
