Pictured above is elder and leader Xoxi, leader of FWP, member of the El Paso Renewable Energy Board Crystal Arrieta, and elder Grandma B. The Frontera Water Protectors visited Camp Toyahvale at Pemanxoje or Toyahvale, Tex, a camp to learn to live with the land and Protect the water. The first Native College in Texas. Just outside of the gorgeous Balmorhea Lake, and above a natural water supply of artesian water that will be ruined by fracking (hydraulic fracturing.) We are joining Sacred Stone Camp in the fight against big oil. Stand with us. // For more info, how to volunteer, and where the location exactly is, please visit their Facebook page.

"A drilling rig sits north of the Davis Mountains in Balmorhea. Houston-based Apache Corporation recently announced the discovery of an estimated 15 billion barrels of oil and gas in the area and plans to drill and use hydraulic fracturing on the 350,000 acres surrounding the town. Apache has leased the mineral rights under the town and nearby state park, but has promised not to drill on or under either. While some residents worry that the drilling could affect the spring at the state park and impact tourism, others are excited for the potential economic boom the oil discovery and drilling could bring. ( @michaelciaglo / #HoustonChronicle )" ** Fracking uses 5,000,000 gallons of water a year. It is mixed with over 300+ carcinogenic chemicals and either injected back into the ground and/or left outside to evaporate and/or sprayed into the air. This process has already caused Earthquakes and poisoned thousands upon thousands of environments, people, and animals.

Drove through a thunderstorm and thick fog from El Paso to Toyahvale, Texas for the grand opening of Camp Toyahvale on Sunday 01/15/17 in support, alongside leader and organizer Crystal Arrieta of The Frontera Water Protection Alliance.
Upon arriving, we experienced hail, sleet, and rain until the sun shone on the gorgeous valley for the opening ceremony. (Continued on next post...) // For more info on local El Paso, Texas involvement, please visit:

The fight to keep our communities water clean and safely away from corporate privateers rages on! From Standing Rock to the Trans Pecos pipeline going into Mexico from Texas, pipelines are being built to deliver fracked oil through some of the most pristine land in the world to countries other than the US. Flint, Michigan meanwhile hasn't had clean water since April 2014! Something tells me if MLK was alive he'd be right there w us at the front lines! Agua es Vida, Water is Life! #waterislife #mniwiconi #nodapl #flintmichigan #flintwatercrisis #standingrock #transpecos #mlk #martinlutherking #mlkday #energytransferpartners #etp #notranspecospipeline #martinlutherking

Tones Of Unity

Los Angeles Times: [The amazing thing is that whether you were Native or not, what we witnessed up there is the awakening of a giant that has been sleeping. It’s the power of us as living things — rather than us waiting for somebody to save us. It was so grass roots.
Native people have never been subject to that amount of solidarity. It left everybody awestruck. And the number of Native people coming together, nothing like this has been seen since the 19th century. Enemies that had previously been enemies, coming together — there’s no way for me to describe to you what that means. It’s far too profound.] #NoDAPL #StandingRock #OcetiOyate #SacredStoneCamp #MniWiconi #WaterIsLife #WaterProtectors #ProtectorsNotProtestors #PeacefulWarriors #NorthDakota #DakotaAccessPipeline #DakotaAccess #EnergyTransferPartners #StandingRockSioux #FortLaramieTreaty1851 #NativeAmericanRights #IndigenousRights #IndigenousUnited #AncestralRights

My cell mate/mom/comrade/hero Cherri Foytlin speaking for #boldlouisiana at the hearing for the proposed Bayou Bridge Pipeline. If Energy Transfer Partners builds this pipeline, 700 bodies of water and 11 LA parishes would be in danger. Bayou Lafourche is the source of freshwater for the Houma Nation wetlands and over 300,000 Louisianans. #nobayoubridge #nodapl #energytransferpartners #nobayoubridgepipeline #cherrifoytlin #mniwiconi

In Far West Texas, in the region of Big Bend National Park, the construction of the Trans-Pecos Pipeline is currently underway. TPPL is a 148-mile, 42-inch diameter pipeline that will carry 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas to Mexico everyday. TPPL is under construction by Dallas based Energy Transfer Partners, the same company constructing the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), and thousands of other pipeline and fracking operations spread out across the United States.
TPPL route construction has intentions of crossing through private ranch lands with or without the owners or adjoining property owners permission. The pipeline will cross through numerous cultural and environmental sites including creeks and drainages that lead straight to the Rio Grande. Starting in Fort Stockton, a reborn West Texas hub for natural gas exploration, fracking, and transfers, TPPL is set to ultimately cross under the Rio Grande at Presidio, Texas where the natural gas will then be sold to Mexico.
With the potential of breaking or leaking, as all pipelines eventually can and will do, TPPL could then destroy the ecosystem of downstream Big Bend State Park, Big Bend National Park, and water and agricultural land along the river valley. A finished TPPL will also create more dependency on fossil fuel exploration, poisonous fracking, and refinery developments that the residents of the Big Bend Region have strongly professed they do not want. TPPL will also make Mexico more dependent on cheap but dirty fossil fuels for decades to come instead of progressing towards clean renewable energy.
Hundreds of jobs have temporarily been created by the project, but after construction only dozens of jobs will remain to continue servicing the pipeline. If TPPL is fully constructed, there is no moving backward. Are the efforts being made to destroy the region’s environment worth it? Absolutely not. This pipeline is being constructed for one reason, the profit of Energy Transfer Partners and the politicians that support it’s construction.

@freedom_faction - The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Sunday rejected the #StandingRockSiouxTribe’s request for an injunction to halt construction of the #DakotaAccessPipeline by #Texas-based #EnergyTransferPartners. The announcement was made public by the #StandingRockSioux Tribe in a news release distributed within the past hour on Sunday evening.

The decision comes as the Tribe is pursuing an appeal to stop construction while the rest of the case proceeds in U.S. District Court. “The #StandingRock Sioux Tribe is not backing down from this fight,” said Dave Archambault II, Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. “We are guided by prayer, and we will continue to fight for our people. We will not rest until our lands, people, waters and sacred places are permanently protected from this destructive pipeline.” The 1,168-mile pipeline crosses through the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s ancestral lands and within a half mile of the reservation boundary. Construction crews have already destroyed and desecrated confirmed sacred and historic sites, including burials and cultural artifacts. The original pipeline route crossed the #MissouriRiver just north of #Bismarck, the capital of #NorthDakota. The route was later shifted downstream, to the tribe’s doorstep, out of concerns for the city’s drinking water supply. “We call on Dakota access to heed the government’s request to stand down around Lake Oahe,” said Jan Hasselman, lead attorney from Earthjustice, which is representing the Tribe. “The government is still deciding whether or not Dakota access should get a permit. Continuing construction before the decision is made would be a tragedy given what we know about the importance of this area.” #IStandWithStandingRock #WaterIsLife

Not as noble as it sounds tho, is it ?
"As #RickPerry awaits his confirmation hearing to become the Secretary of Energy, he has resigned from the board of the company that has been slated to build the controversial #DakotaAccessPipeline, the #TexasTribune reported Thursday. The connection to a project he will have power over as energy secretary created a rocky start for Perry, the former governor of Texas.

Perry left the board of Energy Transfer Partners on Dec. 31, the Texas Tribune reported, and is expected to be confirmed as energy secretary within the next two weeks.

Meanwhile, the Dakota Access Pipeline’sstretch under #LakeOahe in #NorthDakota was postponed after the US #ArmyCorps of Engineers decided a thorough environmental impact assessment needed to be completed. The decision to not grant a vital permit likely means the pipeline will have to be rerouted. The decision came after weeks of protesting by #NativeAmericans and environmentalists who said the pipeline would be prone to #oilspills that would contaminate local water supply.

But #Republicans have promised to finish the pipeline under a #DonaldTrump administration, saying the pipeline meets state environmental regulations in the areas it crosses.

To make conflicts of interest even more obvious, #EnergyTransferPartners CEO Kelcy Warren is a longtime donor to Perry’s campaigns.
