summary:
I pitched Reuters on covering the Treaty People Gathering, a multi-day act of civil disobedience and protest against the Line 3 pipeline, led by the Ojibwe people in Northern Minnesota. Thousands gathered, marching to the Mississippi headwaters to participate in an Indigenous-led prayer as a smaller group of water protectors occupied a Park Rapids pumping station Enbridge was building, chaining themselves to heavy equipment. County sheriffs eventually breached their barricades and arrested virtually everyone, including journalist Alan Weissman.
