Environmental activists on Friday were feeling encouraged.

Despite ongoing conflicts and clashes in northern Minnesota over the construction of Enbridge's Line 3,  last week's decision by TC Energy to abandon the Keystone XL oil pipeline project had representatives from 350.org, the Indigenous Environmental Network and more on a press call with reporters, expressing their hope that the administration would now implement "the Biden standard" going forward and shut down the rest of the pipelines approved in the last four years.

More information about journalist Alan Weisman's arrest is available here.

And Winona LaDuke joins us live to talk about her reaction to the Minnesota Court of Appeals decision to permit Enbridge to go ahead with Line 3: you can listen to that conversation here.
