5th Annual Love Water Not Oil Tour in Wisconsin: July 9-14

The fight against toxic tar sands pipelines continues, but our resistance keeps growing.

Honor the Earth, a Native-led organization, will kick off its 5th Annual Love Water Not Oil Spiritual Horseback Ride in Madison at the Majestic Theatre this Sunday, July 9th with a benefit concert featuring Nahko, Annie Humphrey, Gingger Shankar, and other special guests.

The annual tour has been expanded to include Wisconsin as well as Minnesota and to fight both the proposed expansion of Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline as well as the suspected Line 61-Twin or Line 66, pipeline project. Both pipelines threaten the environment, property rights, and the treaties that were established in the 1800’s.  Activists will ride horses along the pipeline route, against the flow of oil, connecting to the land and each other while building power and resistance at concerts, potlucks, conferences, and ceremonies.

Please join us at some point on the tour!  As you can imagine, riding horses through the State of Wisconsin works up an appetite!  Click here to volunteer to help cook food or support one of the events!
