Minnesota regulators said Monday more drilling lubricants have been spilled during the construction of the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline than what was previously reported. The lubricant spill revelation comes after a summer of Indigenous-led water protectors demanding a halt to construction of the tar sands oil pipeline across what is now northern Minnesota and warning spills from the pipeline would contaminate culturally– and environmentally-important waterways. Water protectors have endured mass arrests, rubber bullets, pepper spray, helicopter flybys, and surveillance by police paid by the Canadian pipeline company. “It’s a climate crime,” Winona Laduke, executive director of Honor the Earth, who lives on the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota, told the Guardian. “This is the largest tar sands pipeline in the world being built in the time of drought in Minnesota and catastrophic fires in Ontario and Manitoba.” (Drilling spills: AP, MPR, Star Tribune $; Protests: The Guardian, InsideClimate News)
