The fight over the Canada's TMX pipeline, which is being constructed through hundreds of kilometers of Indigenous territory without consent, is not over. Our volunteer editorial board is planning a series of articles this summer about the pipeline and resistance to it, and thanks to your support earlier this year, we are able to pay contributors to this series nearly double our usual pay rates. We will pay between $400 to $600 per piece.
