In Minnesota, the Giniw Collective is reporting at least 20 water protectors were brutally arrested over the weekend — including Indigenous lawyer and activist Tara Houska — as resistance to the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline continues. Water protectors say state and local police used tear gas, rubber-coated bullets and pepper bullets, and denied medical care to those held in jail. Some were reportedly held in solitary confinement. Houska on Monday published photos of herself with bruises on her arms and several wounds from police rubber bullets.
