Clash at historic Minnesota pipeline spill leads to charges


LaPRAIRIE, Minnesota – More than 100 water protectors marched to observe the 30th anniversary of the largest inland oil spill in the United States, blocking one highway and clashing with teams of law enforcement officers.

At least two people were taken into custody Wednesday afternoon and officers indicated they would write citations to others protesting at the site of the Line 3 spill at LaPrairie, a small town in Itasca County near Grand Rapids in northern Minnesota.

According to Giniw Collective, a camp that has served as a center for some of the water protectors, more than 70 people were issued citations.
