Room W151 of PBB

A night of poetry, prose, song, video, dance and any other performative art! Participants will be focusing on environmental justice, the intersection between people and nature, human/animal/land rights, and the catastrophic impacts of the oil culture that we live in.

$5 suggested donations will be collected at the door, and all funds will be donated to the Makwa Initiative Camp Fund.

This event is to draw awareness to the Makwa Initiative. The Makwa Initiative is an Anishinaabe-led group of Water Protectors building a community of resistance in Cloquet, Minnesota close to where the Enbridge Line 3 crude oil pipeline is proposed to be constructed. The Line 3 Replacement Project is a 7.5 billion dollar pipeline project that would carry crude oil 1,031 miles from the Tar Sands of Alberta, Canada through the sacred lands, waters, and wild rice lakes of the Anishinaabe people to refineries in Superior, Wisconsin.
