On September 8th & 9th, we're taking action across the country to #StopETP and defend indigenous rights and our water, land, air, and climate.

You may recognize Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) as the notorious company behind the Dakota Access Pipeline. And now, across the United States, ETP is destroying land, polluting air and water, and violating human rights to build nearly a half dozen new massive crude oil and gas pipelines. On Saturday, September 9th, communities everywhere are standing up to #StopETP. Will you join us?

ETP bullies and buys its way through poor rural communities and indigenous treaty lands. Its lust for profit cuts every corner to build pipelines as fast as possible, destroying sacred sites, poisoning water, and putting thousands of lives at risk along the way. While constructing the Rover and Mariner East Pipelines, ETP has spilled millions of gallons of toxic fluids, collapsed roadways, caused landslides, and destroyed historic sites.

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.


Additional information:  This event gives us a venue to express our outrage at ETP and industries that violate our Earth and refuse to recognize the wisdom and beauty of the Indigenous people, in a manner that is peaceful and civilized in accordance with our inner spirit.

We will also outreach to those who may be passing by this well-travelled area.
