SAY: #ShutDAPL_DOWN! #ShutTPPL_DOWN!

STOP CORPORATE GREED! We are the body of this democracy. For far too long, corrupt government and ruthless corporations have oppressed the Native Americans and other American people. Let’s take our country back from the corporate billionaires!

SAY: "TAKE IT BACK!"

ENERGY TRANSFER PARTNERS (ETP) is responsible for and is overseeing the attempted construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota and the Trans Pecos Pipeline (TPPL) in Texas. DAPL IS PROJECTED To GO Through NORTH DAKOTA, SOUTH DAKOTA, IOWA, and ILLINOIS. TPPL WOULD CUT through the last pristine region of Texas to Mexico for FOREIGN EXPORT PURPOSES! MONEY in the pockets of the INVESTORS, NOTHING for the PEOPLE!

ETP is using such tactics as Land Grab by EMINENT DOMAIN and routing DAPL BENEATH The MISSOURI RIVER and TPPL beneath the RIO GRANDE, THREATENING OUR WATER.

—NOT IF, But WHEN—IT WLL FAIL!

All Pipelines Fail.

CONCERNED ONLY with Corporate Profits, ETP has No Regard for the Millions of People WHO WOULD BE NEGATIVELY AFFECTED by a Dakota Access Pipeline and the Trans Pecos Pipeline!

DO NOT LET OUR SACRED PLACES BE DESTROYED FOR PROFIT! STAND WITH US!

PROTECT MOTHER EARTH and the WATER for Future Generations—WATER IS LIFE!

We, THE PEOPLE, DEMAND that the ENERGY TRANSFER PARTNERS CEASE CONSTRUCTION of the DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE and the TRANS PECOS PIPELINE IMMEDIATELY and PERMANENTLY!
