The Keystone XL pipeline has been delayed. Activists in MI  threaten to cut off of Line 5. And the price of tar sands oil has dropped to less than $14 a barrel because the existing pipelines are full. These factors are creating huge pressures on Canadian pipeline infrastructure giant Enbridge to develop more pipeline capacity to get oil from Alberta tar sands to the Gulf and out for export. The most likely route for all this dirty oil is through Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois on south.

We anticipate Enbridge announcements soon. Many landowners, who previously negotiated an agreement with Enbridge for the existing Line 61, will be asked for an additional easement to build another pipeline, dubbed a 'twin' in Enbridge documents. Some may welcome the payment that comes with negotiating this easement. Others may not. Enbridge, a foreign private company, may be granted eminent domain rights to take the property of those who fail to come to an agreement.

SOIL is the ONLY organization working with landowners and community members in the counties where the pipeline will go to help them organize to resist the pipeline.  We need donations to enable us to keep our very effective organizer working in Illinois.  

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to all of us.

Many thanks to those of you who have already donated to our effort to stop eminent domain for private gain. Through our work to return eminent domain law back to its pre-2015 status, we are organizing landowners across the state to resist eminent domain abuse. And at the same time we are making big projects such as new fossil fuel infrastructure more time-consuming and costly. Eventually the costs will outweigh the benefits.
If you haven't already done so, could you donate to support our efforts?
