Last night, I stayed out at the protest encampment on Red Lake Nation lands near Leonard, MN through which four unauthorized tar sands pipelines flow:

Also, my local paper, the Bemidji Pioneer published a front page story on the protest encampment vs Enbridge pipelines, with this significant bit of info (investors take note):

Red Lake Tribal Chairman Floyd Jourdain Jr. said in an email that the protest is not sanctioned by Red Lake Nation.

“This issue is nothing new, and the Red Lake band has known about this trespass for many years,” Jourdain wrote. “We have had talks with Enbridge but nothing meaningful came of those talks so the Red Lake band ordered [Enbridge] to vacate tribal lands, and move their lines.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
