Ben and Jerry’s (owned by Unilever corporation) performative corporate gestures. Milly yanks on the thread we’re pulling out for you - that corporations shouldn’t be the leaders of social movements (yes, even if it makes Israel mad).
Jessica fills us in on the *massive* but largely hidden resistance to Line 3 -- Enbridge’s pipeline expansion proposal that would carry oil from Alberta, Canada to Wisconsin, USA, through untouched wetlands, treaty territories, Mississippi headwaters and to the shores of Lake Superior (Enbridge is a Canadian company responsible for the largest inland oil spill in US history).
