Protesters met at the Michigan Capitol Thursday in opposition to Enbridge’s Line 5 oil pipeline. The gathering takes place a day after a shutdown deadline ordered by Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
‘Hey, hey, ho, ho, Line 5 has got to go. Hey, hey, ho, ho, Line 5 has got to go.’
Six months ago, Governor Gretchen Whitmer gave Enbridge Energy 180 days to stop transporting oil under the Straits of Mackinac. Enbridge is defying that order, as Line 5 continues to operate.
