We walk through the light…
with our brothers and sisters…
we stand and fight.
With a drum, a song, a prayer,
this change of time.

This is the truth reckoning,
the human awakening…
together Brothers and Sisters
Idle No More

The people come by the hundreds…
Sing and Dance the streets of shopping malls…
to the Capitols…corporations and City Halls.
All over this Turtle Island…
our presence will break the silence,
together Brothers and Sisters
Idle No More

Line 3 has attracted considerably less attention, with fewer activists setting their sights on stopping the 1,659-kilometre project that would carry oil from a terminal near Hardisty, Alta., through northern Minnesota to Superior, Wis., the largest project in Enbridge’s history.

The proposed Northern Gateway pipeline would carry diluted bitumen produced in Alberta’s oilsands along a 1,177-kilometre route to an export terminal in Kitimat, B.C.

Some First Nations in B.C.’s north are fervently opposed to this project, as it would carry oil through the pristine Great Bear rainforest.
