Criminal cases against Line 3 protesters stress rural Minnesota legal system
September 27, 2021
Maya Stovall was a student at Carleton College helping organize on climate issues when she learned about the Line 3 oil pipeline.
She decided to travel to northern Minnesota to join the protests against the pipeline - and kept going back.
"Fighting Line 3 felt like the thing to be doing," said Stovall, 20, who is from Illinois and majoring in political science and international relations. "We can't have new fossil fuel infrastructure like Line 3 if we're going to have a breathable planet."
