Big Piney Floatilla & Water Blessing

  • Twin Bridges Big Piney, Hwy 164 Dover Arkansas (map)

Piney Defense Alliance is hosting a family-friendly floatilla event to oppose the Diamond Pipeline! Plains All American Pipeline and Valero plan to pipe highly explosive Bakken crude oil across over 500 waterways including the beautiful, floatable Big Piney Creek. ALL pipelines leak. We are asking everyone to bring their own floating device (canoe/kayak/raft) and life jackets (or inform us of your desire to attend, and your lack of vessel, and we will help find you one.) Our desire is to make this 5-mile float on a very nice stretch of Piney- with an emphasis on St. Patrick and the legend of removing the snakes from Ireland. We want to remove all Black Snakes from Arkansas. Bring your spirit, banners, signs and expressive T-shirts to show your opposition to pipelines. We intend to conduct a Water Blessing. Members of Arkansas Rising will be there defending the water, by informing everyone of the dangers, and to stand in solidarity with anyone who wants to oppose the Diamond Pipeline crossing this beautiful body of water. Water is Life.
