Time to resist

 

Bayou BridgeThis week, the Trump administration issued orders to fast-track the construction of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and Dakota Access oil pipeline.

For years, we have resisted these and other pipelines - including the Bayou Bridge pipeline right here in Louisiana. 

Trump’s new order won’t stop our movements. The people of this country are saying loud and clear that our communities, waters and livelihoods are more important than corporate profits. Click here to say “No” to the Bayou Bridge pipeline!
 
The Bayou Bridge pipeline, which is backed by the same company behind the Dakota Access pipeline, would snake across 11 parishes, destroying flood-buffering wetlands and threatening drinking water sources for hundreds of thousands of people. Louisiana can’t afford another pipeline cutting through our wetlands and we can’t afford any more pipeline spills. Tell the Army Corps to reject Bayou Bridge.
 
The fight against Bayou Bridge isn’t just about a pipeline, it's about how long we get to live in our homes.

This is the largest pipeline we have seen in Louisiana in years, with the largest resistance we’ve ever seen to any pipeline. Over 400 people show up for a hearing on this project two weeks ago!

Along with our brother and sisters across the country fighting to protect their waters and communities from destructive pipelines like Keystone XL and Dakota Access, we’ll keep up the fight and pursue all avenues to stop this pipeline. This is our home, we’re not going anywhere. Join us in the fight by taking action now.
 
For our coasts and communities,

P.S. - On February 8, there will be another public hearing for the Bayou Bridge pipeline. Join us, next Wednesday at 5pm in Napoleonville to voice your opposition to this pipeline! Details can be found here
