We intend to keep this going until the Line 9 reversal in cancelled. If you want to help make this happen, here are just a few ways to do that:
•Come to the site!
Whether you’re able to come for a week, a night, a game of frisbee, or just long enough to drop off supplies, come on by! There’s food and nice people.
Directions and more info can be found here.
•Donate!
Check out the supplies we’re looking for and send what you can our way. You can also donate money by emailing a money transfer to swampline9@hushmail.com, or by dropping it off at the site.
•Spread the word!
Talk to your friends and neighbours about what’s going on, and spread our website and posts over facebook and twitter (#swampline9).


If you need to contact us regarding transportation you can do so by calling 289-244-8631 or emailing hamiltonline9@hushmail.com.

If you’re planning on making a trip out, for a few days or a couple hours, please check out our supplies list to see whether there’s anything you can help us out with. Also, read up on the norms we’ve come up with for respecting the site.

See you soon!


Site Norms

Thanks for participating in Swamp Line 9! Here are a few things we’re asking folks to keep in mind - during this action:


- We are on stolen Indigenous land. The Beverly Swamp is the traditional territory of the Chonnonton people as well as the Mississagi Anishinabec and Onondawaga Haudenosaunee.

- Take care of each other and have fun, but also remember that this is a site of struggle and we need to stay on our toes. For this reason, we ask that this action be a sober space.

- Don’t mess with any of Enbridge’s equipment. It’s not the purpose of this action to damage any equipment or facilities and each person’s actions will affect everyone else.

- Media and cops… Don’t talk to them! If a journalist or a cop approaches you, just smile and tell them, “One second, we’re glad to talk with you, I just need to go find the police/media liaison first.”

- In case of confrontation, seek to de-escalate, whether it’s with police, employees, locals, or anyone. This action seeks to maintain a respectful tone, even as we are determined to hold the site.

- A quick note on security culture: this action is definitely not a place to talk about doing illegal actions or about one’s desire to participate in such actions. If you hear someone bragging or joking about sketchy things, please gently interrupt that behaviour and explain it puts everyone at risk during an action like this.
