Against Extraction: Ⓐ Salon, Saturday, March 15. 3pm

Saturday, March 15. 3 to 5 pm.

We oppose destructive extraction projects.  But how can Minneapolis anarchists and radical environmentalists engage critically and powerfully to stop these disasters?  We’re inviting you to join us in learning more about frac sand mining, pipelines, and the proposed open pit sulfide mine on national forest land near Lake Superior.

Presenters will briefly explain how each of these projects work, who’s pushing them, and who’s fighting them.  What are the larger environmental groups doing?  Finally, we’ll highlight resistance by the Unist’ot’en clan, whose lands encompass a wide swath of Northern British Columbia.

After the presentations, we’ll skip the Q&A and have snacks, coffee, and time to talk with one another about possible next steps. Tar_Sands
