Enbridge pipeline & valve sabotaged

Line_7_Shutdown_FIX

We received this anonymous commuiqué this morning. Spelling, capitalization and punctuation unedited.

what better way to start a new year than by shutting down some fucking oil pipelines? sometime in the night of january 3rd, 2016 individuals stole into the dark near so-called cambridge and used a manual pipeline valve to restrict the flow of enbridge’s line 7. we then secured the site to delay response time. line 7 is another recently-expanded tarsands pipeline operated by enbridge, running paralellel to line 9 & flowing 180,000 bpd of tarsands crude. this action was undertaken to show our ever lasting love and support to the brave folks who’ve taken similar actions in the traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, Mohawk, and Anishinaabek people. further, we take action to counter the new narrative of the state; to swing back at the grossly inflated charges those in sarnia received, and show that we will not be cowed. we fight for the land and water; and we fight for our lives. we will always fight back, whether it’s with the sun warming our faces, or the moonlight to guide us. join us. no tarsands, no pipelines.

This is the third Enbridge tar sands pipeline action in the past month. Click here to watch the Line 9 shutdown in so called “Quebec.

    Yep. That was surely a wise move. What if you had caused a failure by restricting the flow? Who would you blame THEN? Morons.

      Seems peeps did their research. The real questions is Enbridge’s security. How come these valves are so easy to access? Three times now they have been shut down. Two of the times activists called the Enbdridge emergency number prior to shutting it down. In Quebec, the people on the phone didn’t even speak French and it took technicians 3 hours to arrive at the site. What if this had been a spill?
