On September 9, as a part of the NATIONAL #STOPETP DAY OF ACTION, L'eau Est La Vie Camp will host a FLOTILLA DOWN BAYOU LAFOURCHE, while also canvassing local communities regarding the struggle to stop Energy Transfer Partner's proposed Bayou Bridge Pipeline!

YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN US! COME EXPERIENCE L'EAU EST LA VIE CAMP! WE WILL FLOAT WITH OUR RAFTS, TRADITIONAL STRUCTURES AND KAYAKS WITH OUR USUAL LOUISIANA FLARE AND JOIE DE VIVRE!

During our time together we will also work to raise awareness and educate the public to the potential harms that the #BayouBridge Pipeline brings to the drinking waters of Indigenous and Cajun communities along Bayou Lafourche. 

Join us Saturday morning before the float for the Frontliners in Saint James' ceremony "Prayer To Stop a Pipeline" Learn more here:https://www.facebook.com/events/168083080427098/

Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) – owner of the disastrous Dakota Access Pipeline – is wreaking havoc across the United States. From North Dakota to Pennsylvania, from Ohio to Louisiana, from Michigan to Texas, ETP continues to systematically and ruthlessly violate indigenous sovereignty and human rights. Wherever they build, ETP steals land, poisons air and water, and trashes the climate. 

Enough is enough. On September 9th, 2017, an emerging coalition of frontline communities and allies are taking action across the country to #StopETP and defend indigenous rights and our water, land, air, and climate. 

By taking coordinated action targeting ETP, we will launch a broader, sustained effort to disrupt ETP’s business-as-usual until the company withdraws their unnecessary and damaging pipeline projects, stops violating human rights, and stops polluting the air, water, and climate.
