Thank you for following our movement to stop the Bayou Bridge Pipeline. Over the past several months we have deployed over 50 direct actions to stop the pipeline and right now we are on our 35th consecutive day of disrupting construction deep in the Atchafalaya Basin.

As our resistance has escalated, so have our opponents. Last week Energy Transfer Partners’ private security attacked three water protectors who were on canoes and kayaks. The private security grabbed the water protectors off of the boats, handcuffed them and brought them to the pipeline easement where  police eventually placed them under arrest. All three people were charged with felonies under Louisiana’s new, corporate backed anti-protest law.

In the face of such repression, we know that there are power in numbers. That’s why we are putting out 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.

Because of the urgency of the situation, we are pausing the application process to join Camp and instead are asking all protectors to come to Camp as soon as possible. Please respond to this email or send us a message at with your name, phone number, why you want to come to camp, when you will be arriving and how long you plan on staying. We will respond with the directions to camp and what to bring.

** Please note that if show up to camp without emailing us first and without receiving an email invitation, you will not be allowed to enter camp. **

In the face of ETP’s violence, we continue to disrupt and stop construction in the Atchafalaya Basin on the water, on the ground and in the air. The more protectors here on the ground, the more we can stop construction. We hope that you can join us.
