A House on a Pipeline

Fence over pipeline and mobile home

There is a new structure at the Red Lake encampment outside of Leonard, MN, a mobile home. It now sits on Red lake Nation land next to a pipeline that was illegally placed there 60 years ago. They want the pipeline shut down and moved off their land. Regulations state that a pipeline must be shut down for safety if there are structures within a certain distance. Marty Cobenais (Who took the pictures) and others moved the 14×70 mobile home there yesterday, the latest act by the encampment that has been there since February 28 when a sacred fire was lit and still burns over 100 days later.

I have previously covered the Enbridge/Red Lake Blockade in greater detail.
