Stop Line 3!
All proceeds from this digital release of Spiritual Fluids go towards people and groups working to stop Line 3. Line 3 is a tar sands pipeline that a company called Enbridge is currently trying to build in violation of Indigenous treaty rights as a greed-fueled assault on our collective environmental future. The fight has been going on for years, but Line 3 was recently in the news as a number of water protectors were arrested for chaining themselves together within a section of pipeline to halt construction.
