Line 5 Rally at the Straits: Just Say NO to MBA Line 5 Tunnel

WHO: Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians Nokomis Ogitchida is sponsoring this rally. Great Lakes tribal leadership, water protectors communities have been invited, and it is open to the public! We encourage all those who care about the waters to join us in support!

WHAT: Rally to Protect the Great Lakes from Enbridge Line 5. Gov. Rick Snyder has decided to hand over the Enbridge Line 5 Tunnel to the Mackinac Bridge Authority. The arrangement would keep the next governor from undoing the agreement.

The mid-term election will NOT stop Snyder from saddling the tribes, the state Michigan and its citizens and the MBA with a dangerous project with dangerous consequences. It will take 10 years to build the tunnel—and Line 5 will be running as usual through the Straits during that decade, unless it explodes.

WHERE: Bridgeview Park, next to the Mackinac Bridge north side.

WHEN: Nov. 8, 10 a.m. Rally. 12 p.m. Water Ceremony.

The Bridge Authority is holding a public meeting on Nov. 8 at 9 a.m. at Little Bear Arena in St. Ignace, just before the rally! The Bridge Authority meeting will provide an opportunity for citizens to weigh in on the tunnel plan. Tell the MBA what you think!
