Enbridge Line 3 RESISTANCE - Video interview with Paul DeMain

Building Unity’s Media Project interviews Paul DeMain, nationally known journalist and environmental activist. Paul brings us first hand news about Enbridge’s rush to lay a lot of pipe before 5 courts are scheduled to give Native Nations their days in Court in 35 to 40 days. As all of this is happening, indigenous and non-indigenous resisters pray, sing, and cause disruptions and delays for huge semi trucks of pipe. Enbridge brought 4,000 pipe laying workers in from all around the country.



We, the undersigned Wisconsin faith leaders, are profoundly disturbed by persistent attempts over the last two months to overturn the will of the people as expressed in the November election, which has been called “the most secure in American history.”[1] These efforts came to a head last week in the violent assault on the U.S. Capitol and our democratically elected leaders of all parties. As leaders of faith, we claim our role as part of our country’s moral conscience.

New Videos Available to Inform Workers of Their Rights and How to Keep Themselves Safe During COVID-19 Pandemic

The Dignity at Work Coalition created videos in English and Spanish, designed to inform workers of their rights and the obligations of their employers to keep them safe during the pandemic. The coalition encourages local health departments, business groups, health providers, and others to share these videos widely. Spearheaded by Worker Justice Wisconsin and Voces de la Frontera, the videos are part of a larger effort to promote safety for low-wage and undocumented workers, who often are forced by economic necessity to return to work even under unsafe conditions.
