The L’eau Est La Vie Camp is launching a West Coast tour. If you are in the area, please come out and help promote! To hear an interview on the It’s Going Down podcast with participants from L’eau Est La Vie, go here.
From September 23 – October 1st, Cherri Foytlin, Mark Tilsen and Anne White Hat will be touring the West Coast and we need your help! Sign up here to host a tour stop.
On this tour, we are telling lessons learned from years of Indigenous-led resistance to pipelines, sharing tactics and updates about our fight against so-called ‘Anti-protester Laws’, and fundraising for Phase 2: our next project to dismantle fossil fuel companies and settler-colonialism. We will tell you all about it if you come!
The L’eau Est La Vie Camp is a continuation of our fight in Standing Rock, and furthermore a continuation of the centuries old fight to protect sacred stolen territory. The Camp centers the voices of indigenous, black, femme, and two spirit organizers. The camp fought in the bayous of Louisiana, Chata Houma Chittimacha Atakapa-Ishak territory, to stop constriction of Energy Transfer Partner’s Bayou Bridge Pipeline – the tail end of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The camps sustained resistance campaign delayed the completion of the Pipeline over a year. In addition to costing ETP upwards of a billion dollars, the L’eau Est La Vie Camps galvanized the fight for climate justice in the Gulf South and serves as an amazing example of how effective a small group of committed activists with powerful leadership can be.
