Yesterday members of the American Indian Movement of Central Texas, local descendants of indigenous tribes, and citizens long involved in the Trans-Pecos Pipeline struggle marched against the Trans-Pecos Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux.
About a hundred marched the three and a half miles from the center of Alpine to the pipeline crossing of 1703, rallying briefly at the gates of the Pumpco office / utility yard where AIM members waved their flags in broad gestures of disapproval. At the crossing, the group massed around the west side of the road where a stepped gapping hole has been prepared for the tunneling beneath the road. This movement is about more than a single pipeline. It's about respecting the natural world and protecting our water and land for future generations. @standingwithstandingrock #nodapl#waterislife #notranspecospipeline #standwithbigbend #thankyou American Indian Movement Of Central Texas
