"There are really no laws in the US that say a project can't go forward"

From May of 2018: protestors gathered at the Minnesota capitol and marched to downtown St. Paul to kick off the Block (Line 3) Party.

There have been plenty of protests and public feedback, and even Minnesota's Department of Commerce has weighed in on Enbridge's Line 3 tar sands pipeline (they said a new one isn't needed and the old one should be decommissioned).

But the Commerce department doesn't have the final say: the Public Utilities Commission does.

So a group will gather Saturday on the shores of Gitchi Gammi (Lake Superior) for a rally and march to leave no question in the minds of the PUC where they stand on the issue.
