Wednesday August 13, 2014 – Protesting the Enbridge Line 9

Over the course of the past week a group of activists calling themselves DamLine9, occupied an Enbridge Line9 construction site in Innerkip, Ontario. A statement released on the group’s tumblr website claims that, ‘line 9 poses a danger to people animals, land and water,’ and that ‘those involved in this blockade intend to stop construction on the site indefinitely.” The occupation was eventually shut down as police arrested and charged 5 protestors. Lana Goldberg participated at the blockade as a member of DamLine9 and joined Christian Deo (@chrisjdeo) on News Now to talk about the actions, the pipeline and what comes next for pipeline activism in Canada.
