Enbridge has replaced a 461-foot section of new oil pipeline in Michigan after it fell into a ditch when a crane holding it toppled on its side.
Last week marked the third anniversary of the largest inland oil spill in US history. On July 25th, 2010 a 41-year old Enbridge pipeline in Michigan tore open spewing over three million litres of diluted tar sands bitumen or dilbit from Alberta into the Kalamazoo River and the surrounding area.
Activists from around the world will gather at the site of the ruined Kalamazoo river to share what they’ve learned over the last year. The video also gives a hint of the daily themes and illustrate what to expect over five days of “Peace, Love and Democracy.”
Occupy Kalamazoo will be hosting the second round of Occupy National conferences, August 21-25, 2013, following the wildly successful Occupy National Gathering that took place in Philadelphia, PA, July 2012.
After spending 10 hours in an oil pipeline Monday, a man protesting the Enbridge Energy Co. was arrested and taken to jail.
