Thursday, individuals locked themselves together inside a pipe segment to protest the Enbridge Energy Line 3 oil pipeline replacement project.

This particular construction worksite is near the township of Backus. Enbridge crew members are currently working at several worksites as tribally-led lawsuits have yet to be heard and decided.

Line 3 starts in Alberta, Canada, and clips a corner of North Dakota before crossing northern Minnesota en route to Enbridge’s terminal in Superior, Wisconsin. The 337-mile line in Minnesota is the last step in replacing the deteriorating pipeline that was built in the 1960s.
