- Stop Line 3 actions. Jan Haaken talks with Extinction Rebellion PDX organizer Diana Meisenhelter about the national mobilization to support the Indigenous-led Stop Line 3 actions in Northern Minnesota, and why these actions are so critical in the fight against expansion of fossil fuel pipelines. Meisenhelter is part of a group traveling from Portland this week to join camps along the pipeline route. In recognition of International Women's Day, they also discuss the intersection of racial, gender and climate justice and what it means to be a white ally in this Indigenous led movement. Diana Meisenhelter has worked as a labor, environmental, social justice, anti-poverty, and community activist for over five decades, and currently works on climate change and social justice organizing through Extinction Rebellion and the Defend Democracy Coalition.
