Sign the petition to support farmers and landowners refusing to allow Enbridge to build a tar sands pipeline through central Illinois:
We, the residents of Illinois, oppose the construction of Enbridge pipelines through our state, including the Southern Access Extension.
We stand with the landowners and farmers of central Illinois, from Patoka to Flanagan, who have refused to allow Enbridge the right to build the pipeline. We also oppose Enbridge in its current legal maneuvering to use eminent domain to force these landowners to submit to its will.
The construction of these pipelines, which will transport tar sands oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico for export, will result in even more pollution and climate change. With the number of recent pipeline spills, we also do not want to risk our water supplies to a company with the track record of Enbridge. We hold that building pipelines to carry tar sands oil is part of the systemically wrong direction taken by corporations, along with fracking and other polluting practices, when profit takes precedence over people and the planet.
