L'eau Est La Vie Camp - No Bayou Bridge

Police Violence.
"We need you here. We need you here now." - Cherri Foytlin.
Friends - please SHARE this video. St. Martin Parish Sheriffs deputies did this because they think they can get away with it. They do this because they think that no one is watching. LETS MAKE THEM INFAMOUS.
***
Today St. Martin Sheriffs’s deputies arrested Cherri and three other water protectors at a Bayou Bridge pipeline construction site in the Atchafalaya Basin. The deputies used pain compliance, pepper spray and batons. They arrested us on behalf of Energy Transfer Partners (ETP). On the land we have permission to be. And they do not.
ETP is trying to silence our resistance, but it will only grow. If you ever wanted to join us on the frontlines, now is the time.
JOIN US by emailing resist@nobbp.org with your name, phone number, why you want to come to camp, when you will be arriving and how long you plan on staying. We will respond with the directions to camp and what to bring.
***
Then PLEASE CALL the St. Martin Parish Sheriff Department and demand that they stop illegally arresting and brutalizing water protectors: (337) 394-8931
You can also donate to help us get folks out of jail: https://www.gofundme.com/nobbp

Whats Next?

 Row against the current. Nothing new for us, we, nosotroas , zapatistas.

 We want to endorse - we consult with our peoples - any foreman will be confronted, anybody; and not only who proposes a good administration and a correct repression - that is, this fight against corruption and the security plan based on impunity-; also those behind avant-garde dreams seek to impose their hegemony and homogenize us.

 We will not change our history, our pain, our anger, our struggle, for the progressive conformity and their walk behind the leader.

 Maybe the rest will forget it, but we do not forget that we are zapatistas.

Zapatistas -- Part II: 'A Continent as a Backyard, a Country as a Cemetery, A Small Rebellion'



Part II: A Continent as a Backyard, a Country as a Cemetery, Pensamiento Único as a Government Program, and a Small, Very Small, Ever So Small Rebellion.

From our analysis of the world we move to the level of the continent.

If we look above…

We see the examples of Ecuador, Brazil and Argentina, where supposedly progressive governments have not only been removed from power but prosecuted, and the governments that have taken their place are ones that have been trained as good overseers—obedient to capital, that is—ready to take on a realignment of the world plantation (though, to be fair, even in their cynicism they’re still pretty clumsy). Take Temer in Brazil, Macri in Argentina, and that guy in Ecuador who was supposed to be good because he was chosen by the now-persecuted Correa (a man of the “citizen’s revolution”, “a leftist” according to the progressive intelligentsia who backed him) but who, it turns out, is actually on the right: Lenin Moreno (yeah, paradoxically his name is Lenin).
