What is Line 3?

Line  3 is a proposed pipeline expansion that will bring millions of barrells of tar sand from Alberta, Canada to Superior, Wisconsin. Enbridge, a company at fault for the largest inland oil spill in the U.S, wants to build this new pipeline through untouched wetlands and treaty territory of Anishinaabe peoples as well as through the Mississipi River and the shore of Lake Superior.

The U.S. government has a responsibility under federal law to honor the rights guaranteed to tribal members in their treaties. The proposed Line 3 corridor would violate the treaty rights of the Anishinaabeg by endangering primary areas of hunting, fishing, wild rice and cultural resources in the 1855 treaty territory.

 

The climate effects of Line 3 are enormous--Line 3 will carry enough oil to produce about 170 billion kilograms of carbon dioxide per year, equivalent to about 50 coal power plants, or 38 million vehicles on our roads.

Call Biden at 1-888-724-8946

Call The Army Corps of Engineers at 202-761-5903 or 202-761-1878

 

WE DEMAND THAT BIDEN & ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS STOP LINE 3 

How are CalSTRS and our Teachers involved?

Most California public school teachers have no idea that CalSTRS, their pension fund, invests over $6 billion in the fossil fuel industry, including millions in Enbridge, the company that is building Line 3 . It is extremely ironic that teachers, who spend their careers preparing their students for the future, have a retirement that is invested in environmental racism and the destruction of their students’ future..

We must show CalSTRS that they cannot silence the youth and keep teachers from knowing what is happening in their boardroom and about their $6 billion investments that are funding a climate catastrophe and a racist pipeline. Since CalSTRS is the largest teachers’ pension fund in the country, what happens in California can have a tremendous impact globally.

WE DEMAND CALSTRS DIVEST FROM ENBRIDGE AND ALL FOSSIL  FUELS

Environmental Racism Here In SF

The Hunters Point Naval Shipyard (HPNS) is a Federal Superfund Site on the National Priorities List. This means that it is one of the most contaminated sites in the United States. The Shipyard was the site of the Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory and is full of radioactive and toxic waste.

 

The HPNS is located in Bayview Hunters Point (BVHP), a low-income community of color ranked as one of the communities in the state most at risk from pollution. Residents suffer from high rates of asthma and cancer. 

 

Lennar/FivePoint built homes contaminated and they plan to build thousands more homes, despite alleged fraud in the cleanup and inadequate cleanup. 

 

WE DEMAND

  1. Declare MORATORIUM on Lennar’s Shipyard development and unsafe soil excavation!

  2. Declare PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY!

  3. Conduct full retesting, safe cleanup, and removal of all radioactive and toxic waste at the Shipyard Superfund Site and Treasure Island
