The Trans-Pecos Pipeline is a proposed natural gas transmission line designed to send massive quantities of U.S. fracked gas to Mexico. The pipeline would cross through the heart of the Big Bend, running east of the Davis Mountains–skirting the town of Alpine–passing through the famed Marfa Lights and the Chinati Mountains near the historic town of Shafter before tunneling beneath the Rio Grande to pass into Mexico. Although the United States is covered in a maze of oil and gas transmission pipelines, these huge pipelines still end in the Permian Basin, stopping well short of the Big Bend. If this pipeline is built, we fear it could open the door to additional industrial infrastructure and destroy the pristine nature of the region. There are some places simply too special to sacrifice for “progress.” Please join our fight to protect the integrity of the Big Bend for future generations.

Hosted by La Abeja Herbs and El Cosmico with live music from Luke Redfield and Hotel Brotherhood, rad vendors including Lovecraft Vintage and Fortress. We'll have food, we'll have drinks, we'll have an epic West Texas Sunset -- and most important of all, a good dose of solidarity and resistance. A percentage of proceeds will be donated to support the Waer Protectors of the Two Rivers Camp - Stop Trans Pecos Pipeline -- an indigenous-led group actively resisting the Trans-Pecos Pipeline.
