Ottawa, July 16 (RHC)-- In Manitoba, Canada, First Nations activists have set up an indigenous prayer camp near the U.S. border in a bid to stop construction of the Enbridge Line 3 oil pipeline.  The proposed line would carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, to a terminal in Superior, Wisconsin. 

Earlier, activists opened the Spirit of the Buffalo camp near the city of Gretna, south of Winnipeg, within sight of a construction crew operating across the border in North Dakota.  

In a statement, members of the group invited protesters to join their efforts to stop the pipeline, calling it a direct violation of the United Nations Declaration of Indigenous Peoples’ Rights, and adding: “The camp also calls for an end to tar sands expansion and infrastructure that will lock humanity into future carbon emissions the planet cannot afford in the face of climate change.”
