Activists target five pipelines, including in Clearbrook, in solidarity with Dakota Access opponents


CLEARBROOK, Minn. — Activists who tampered Tuesday, Oct. 11, with five oil pipelines that carry Canadian crude into the United States said they’re standing in solidarity with Dakota Access Pipeline opponents and calling on President Obama to prevent a “climate catastrophe.”

The activists from a group called Climate Direct Action said they targeted pipelines that deliver tar sands oil from Alberta into the U.S. in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and an international call for prayer and action.

Nine people were arrested in connection with tampering with emergency valves on pipelines, including two Enbridge Energy pipelines southeast of Clearbrookand TransCanada’s Keystone Pipeline near Walhalla, N.D., said Afrin Sopariwala, a spokeswoman for the group.
