Dispatch From L'eau Est La Vie Camp: Water Protectors Not Backing Down After Arrests in Louisiana


September 7, 2018

Four water protectors from the L’eau Est La Vie Camp in southern Louisiana were arrested on Tuesday while taking action against Energy Transfer Partners’ Bayou Bridge Pipeline. What began as a check on the status of construction turned into a multi-hour shutdown of work by the members of the camp.

Pipeline workers called the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office and tensions rose when their reinforcements arrived on site, eventually leading to apparent violations of human rights and the safety of those attacked by law enforcement.
