MAHNOMEN, Minn. - In what may become the largest gathering of water protectors since Standing Rock five years ago, thousands are expected to rally against Enbridge's Line 3 oil pipeline in northern Minnesota on Monday.

Organizers of the Treaty People Gathering say that up to 2,000 people from all over the country are expected to gather on the White Earth Indian Reservation near Mahnomen, Minn. in an effort to stop the ongoing construction of the Line 3 oil pipeline project on tribal land.

More than 50 Indigenous, environmental and faith groups are sponsoring Monday's main action against the pipeline's new construction route. Several well-known celebrities and activists are expected to address the crowds, including film star and activist Jane Fonda.
