BAYOU BRIDGE PIPELINE

FROM nobbp.org 8/14/18 — Here in the bayous of Louisiana, our water and way of life is under threat, and we need your support.

Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), the very same company behind the notorious Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) , is trying to build a 162 mile crude oil pipeline across Louisiana called the Bayou Bridge Pipeline (BBP).

This is an open call for all water protectors, kayaktivists, radical sailors and water going folk to join us on the frontlines as we fight the tail end of the Dakota Access Pipeline in the swamps of Louisiana.
If you are interested in stopping the Bayou Bridge Pipeline, make plans to come to Louisiana NOW.
Need to email or contact camp prior to coming.

BBP will pollute our water, crossing an astounding 700 bodies of water including Bayou LaFourche, a critical reservoir that supplies the United Houma Nation and 300,000 Louisiana residents with clean, safe drinking water.
BBP violates indigenous sovereignty. Along its path of destruction, BBP would impact sacred mounds and threaten drinking water of the United Houma Nation, a tribe that has been seeking federal recognition for decades. Neither the United Houma Nation nor any tribe of the gulf south has been consulted nor given consent for the construction of this pipeline.

STANDING ROCK – DAPL

DAPL Pipeline Route: http://standwithstandingrock.net/pipeline-re-routed-standing-rock/

From — Lakota People’s Law Project 
It’s Not Over!
Leaked documents reveal that TigerSwan, a private security firm hired by DAPL parent company Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), operated without a license in North Dakota. TigerSwan also employed unlawful, paramilitary style tactics to suppress the movement by targeting, surveilling, and provoking the peaceful and prayerful water protectors at Standing Rock.
Use the form on the Lakota People’s Law Project site to ask North Dakota’s Attorney General and Morton County’s State’s Attorney to drop the charges against water protectors and hold TigerSwan and ETP accountable by making them pay for the state’s costs resulting from law enforcement actions at Standing Rock.

ALERT Pine Point or tribal villages ... if you have an unrecognized or 4-digit address eventhough your tribal ID states your address DO NOT STAND DOWN when questioned or denied by county offices to register and vote — STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS TO VOTE ! Your address is legitimate whether it’s 4-5 or whatever digits and that address cities may or may not say Pine Point as example; it will reads Ponsford ... ITS YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE ... 👊🏾

We kept saying the address is legitimate and it’s correct ... she kept saying it isn’t in our database showing it’s a physical address and that MN asdresses are 5-digits not 4-digits ... I said well your system is incorrect and check again cause it shows up on google maps and google earth as an address. I said I can assure you it’s accurate. His ID was issued by tribal government; a sovereign government that’s recognized.

These young men traveled 30-miles to register and vote. Unheard of isn’t it! 30-miles to vote. County official tried denying the address saying it wasn’t legitimate cause it was a 4-digit vs 5-digit and if he’s from Pine Point why does it say “Ponsford” ... and said when asked how to resolve a tribal issued ID with address and what would we need to do to have an address changed or verfied in your system to vote ... we were told go to zoning permit department to file .. I said what exactly is the zoning department going to do and what we need to file and do what? Legitimize a physical building (a home) to a 5-digit address to legitimize on paper a home where an entire family lives?? Am I supposed to send an entire village of Pine Point to zoning to verify a place of residence and change addresses where Itasca Mantrap can send bills and supply energy but to vote the address isn’t recognized? I’m like processing new id’s and permit zoning is a “poll tax...” cause it would cost additional time and funding to legitimize a physical home so tribal members can vote. Finally said, can you please provide these instructions again and I’m going to film you so I can show my neighbors - the entire village - so they can try to understand the instructions you suggest they do so they can register and vote ... finally a coworker in the back county office verified the address (said it’s correct) and was registered to vote but the woman had a poor attitude (not a good experience for a young generation voter) ... for new voters or any voter who are disenfranchised traveling 30+ miles typically would just walk away and give up out of frustration or discouragement of disbelief and not vote. We stood our ground ... and the young men rocked the native vote! 👊🏾😎
