NORTHERN MINN. - Nearly 200 people were arrested at several locations on Monday, June 7, in northern Minnesota during the largest gathering to date of water protectors against the Enbridge Line 3 replacement project. In addition to those arrested, dozens were given citations at an Enbridge pump station in Two Inlets, Minn.

There are also now serious concerns about the treatment of organizers and activists who have been held for 16 - 20 hours without being booked and are being denied prescription medications, according to the Indigenous Environmental Network.

There are reports law enforcement officers are denying medical attention to those jailed who were injured during their arrests.
