No More Pipeline Blues Premieres in Rolling Stone Magazine
On Earth Day, Mother Earth is going to get a lot of love from the Indigenous mothers, grandmothers and others who are teaming up in song, spoken word and video to push back against a new toxic, highly polluting tar sands oil pipeline. “Line 3” cuts through the heart of Native land and crosses more than 200 water bodies – including the Mississippi River twice – a drinking water source for millions of people downstream from the river’s headwaters, which begins in northern Minnesota.
Rock the Cause Records* will release the audio single, “No More Pipeline Blues (On this Land Where We Belong)” on Earth Day, April 22, 2021, featuring Waubanewquay, Winona LaDuke, Day Sisters, Mumu Fresh, Pura Fe, Soni Moreno, Jennifer Kreisberg, Indigo Girls, Bonnie Raitt and poet Joy Harjo. Produced and composed by folksinger and activist Larry Long, the song will be available on multiple platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube and more.
The documentary-styled music video premiered on RollingStone.com on April 20.
Revealing the powerful efforts of water protectors to #StopLine3, the supporting music video is an action-packed mini-documentary, shining a spotlight on the Indigenous women-led resistance to the tar sands pipeline.
Produced by Honor the Earth and Pickett Pictures, it is directed by award-winning filmmaker and photographer Keri Pickett the film will also be released to underscore the battle on the land and water and in the courts to #StopLine3.
Despite active, ongoing lawsuits in the Minnesota Appeals Court and in a Federal district court in Washington DC, the highly polluting pipeline is already half built. Line 3 is owned by the Canadian multi-national, Enbridge, Inc., and dissects the heart of Anishinaabe territories and the most pristine and complex watersheds and ecosystems in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, including Lake Superior.
