Stuff that matters


Relive a big moment in civil disobedience for the climate.

On Oct. 11, activists organized to shut down five pipelines transporting Canadian tar sands through Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, and Washington. We missed this footage when it first came out, and if you did too, check it out.

“If people are not acting as though there’s an emergency, people don’t believe that there is an emergency,” activist Leonard Higgins says in the video.
