Last year, Indigenous women led movements waged a fierce campaign to stop Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline. Police escalated in a multitude of ways (felony charges, high bails, rubber bullets, tear gas, etc) against water protecting pipeline opponents.
Thanks to the bold reporting of outlets such as The Intercept and Unicorn Riot, we're still finding out the strategies that the Canadian oil giant and the Minnesota police state colluded on to neutralize water protectors.
We talk with Alleen Brown (@AlleenBrown) about the latest on policing the Line 3 pipeline protests.
