5th Pipe Out Paddle Up Flotilla




Line 5 is an aging old pipeline beneath the Straits of Mackinac. It carries light crude oil and natural gas, and is owned by the same company (Enbridge) that allowed the Kalamazoo River oil spill to occur. This pipeline poses too great of a risk to our Great Lakes.

A flotilla is a large group of kayaks/kayaktivists demonstrating on the water for a cause, or calling for an action. Tribal jiimanns are invited. We will gather in a good way to create a flotilla to bring awareness to Line 5. If this pipeline breaks, it will devastate the pristine Waters of Lake Michigan for centuries. Many people are unaware of the danger that will completely change our way of life. #ShutDownLine5 #NoTunnel
