WATER EQUALS LIFE

Reverend Billy of the Church of Stop Shopping gets involved in the fight for clean water….

Film-maker Teodros and music maker Sunder  and myself spent  this week on the shoulders of baking highways in Minnesota.  Anishinaabe and Lakota mothers and grandmothers are our leaders.  We’ve joined water protectors who are walking from the Line 3 pipeline down to the state capitol of Minnesota on August 25th with a gathering in Washington D. C. on the same day.


These mothers of the RISE coalition are our teachers.  The Line 3 resistance is the experience that radiates out to all progressive issues.  It is the life and death struggle against fossil banks and corporations and their political collaborators.  This is  Pettis Bridge, this is Stonewall.  We are dedicating the next several weeks of our “Stop Shopping Radio” to the fight for the life of this Earth in the treaty lands.

Please tell your listeners to GET INVOLVED at https://www.stopline3.org/hub
