Enbridge’s Expansion: The Flanagan South Pipeline

The Cause:

To resist the construction of the KXL and the expansion of tar sands infrastructure and dedicated to stopping Tar Sands transportation and extraction infrastructure in the beautiful heartland of North America.

1: Opposition to all forms of Tar Sands exploitation
2. Opposition to Infrastructure Which Supports Further Tar Sands Exploitation
3: Explicit Support for Indigenous Peoples
4: Acknowledgement of Direct Action as A Legitimate and Necessary Tactic
5: No Condemnation of Resistance

The Flanagan South pipeline is part of Enbridge’s larger expansion project that includes; the Alberta Clipper, Line 61, and the Seaway Pipelines. Proposed as an alternative route to the Keystone XL Pipeline Enbridge’s proposed expansion project covers 2,609 miles crossing 8 states.

Both pipelines top out around 35 million barrels per day, but the Enbridge project has nearly 700 miles more pipe, all of which is prone to leaks and spills.
