***********"Two Rivers Camp"**********
The Society of Native Nations (SNN) was asked by the Big Bend Defense Coalition of Alpine, TX and the surrounding communities in West Texas to help stop the Trans Pecos Pipeline. SNN has committed to help by starting a camp, which opened on Dec 30, 2016 to receive Water Protectors. The camp has been named "Two Rivers Camp", known as "La Junta de los Rios" by the local native communities such as the Jumano Apache and Conchos People.
The Trans Pecos Pipeline (TPPL) is owned by Kelcy Warren, billionaire and CEO of Energy Transfer Partners, the same company that owns the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. The TPPL is a fracked gas pipeline that is being built through west Texas. It will go under The Rio Grande River into Mexico where the gas will be exported to various foreign countries. One hundred and forty three (143) miles of this pipeline is considered "intra-state," which means it requires NO environmental, archaeological, socioeconomic, safety, routing or other studies or impact assessments have to be done or taken into consideration.
The TPPL will:
1) Go through the Chihuahuan Desert, which is one of the three most biologically diverse arid regions in the world.
2) Will destroy the delicate ecology on both sides of the border.
3) Go under the Rio Grande. In the event of a leak or an explosion, the methane from the gas could infiltrate the water aquifer that sits just 50 feet below the Rio Grande
4) IF completed, FRACKING will begin to take place and this will bring on a whole new set of water contamination issues to a water source that is already scarce to the area.
5) The pressure testing of the pipeline ALONE is also going to use millions of gallons of water.
Energy Transfer Partners (company also behind DAPL) has forcibly taken land from 34 local landowners in the name of eminent domain, a legal process that should only be used to benefit the public. NO ONE in the United States will benefit from this pipeline but Kelcy Warren and his billionaire cronies.
WE WELCOME ALL WATER PROTECTORS.
Please note the following:
1) NO alcohol, drugs, or weapons
2) Please come SELF SUFFICIENT for the initial opening of the camp. Please come prepared for primitive camping conditions in a desert area.
3) All rules of the camp will be adhered to. These rules are established to protect everyone in the camp.
It is time for all of us to Stand Up and Speak Out against these greedy profiteers by helping to stop the Trans Pecos Pipeline.
