Bayou Bridge Pipeline: Media, Water Protector’s Boats Sunk by Security Boat

Via LEAU EST LA VIE CAMP FACEBOOK

On Monday, while two boats carrying water protectors and media were legally observing a bayou bridge pipeline construction site, an Energy Transfer Partners security boat rapidly passing by intentionally caused a large wake that swamped and eventually sunk our boats!

All passengers, including a documentary film crew, narrowly made it to shore before the boats completely sunk.

All are safe, but some are stranded in the swamp. A local Cajun fisherman has offered to help and is preparing to take one of our boat pilots out to do a rescue extraction.

There is an urgent need to repair or replace our boats! Please share and support our fight…donate if you can! #StopETP #noBBP
