Steven Donziger: Minn. police paid $8.6M by BIG OIL to brutalize Line 3 pipeline protestors

Human rights attorney, Steven Donziger, weighs in on new reporting from the Minneapolis Star Tribune which finds that policing of last year’s Line 3 pipeline protests was, in part, paid for by the same company that stood to profit off the pipeline. #Minneapolis #Oklahoma #Line3Pipeline

Enbridge Energy provided The Hill TV with the following statement: “The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission required Enbridge to create and fund a Public Safety Escrow Account in order to protect communities from the financial burden of paying public safety costs associated with protests. As required in the Route Permit for Line 3, an independent Public Safety Escrow Account Manager – appointed by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission – received these bills, decided if they were appropriate, and reimbursed communities accordingly.

Enbridge provided the funding for the account but had no decision-making authority on reimbursement requests.

Community police and sheriff deputies are responsible for public safety. During the replacement of Line 3, officers decided when activists were breaking the law—or putting themselves and others in danger.

We support the rights of individuals and groups to express their views legally and peacefully about the energy we all use. Law enforcement didn’t arrest activists for peaceful protest. Officers arrested activists for breaking the law. Illegal and unsafe acts by activists endangered themselves, first responders, and workers, and caused millions of dollars in damages, including to equipment owned by small businesses and native contractors on the project. We support the justice system holding those who flouted the law accountable for their actions.”

According to a statement by Chevron, “the Ecuador judgment against Chevron repeatedly has been found to be fraudulent. Steven Donziger is an adjudicated racketeer and fraudster who was disbarred for his illegal and unethical acts in the Ecuador case and held in civil and criminal contempt for flouting lawful court orders. Tellingly, Donziger was fired years ago by his indigenous Ecuadorian clients for refusing to explain how he spent tens of millions of dollars raised in their name.”
