Protesters known as "water protectors" blockaded Enbridge Line 3 worksites Wednesday morning in the Savanna State Forest in Northeastern Minnesota.

At one location, a protester ascended a 40-foot, two-legged stand, according to a news release from the Giniw Collective. At another location, two protesters stationed themselves on a flipped-over vehicle with a sign that read "doom to Line 3 or doom to us all" and blocked the entry road.

Nonviolent resistance to Line 3 continues to grow across Anishinaabe treaty territory in northern Minnesota, the release said. Pipeline opponents say the pipeline construction violates treaty rights, risks chance of an oil spill and deepens reliance on fossil fuels.
