Texas Water Protectors [FB Feed]

Aloha Comrades,
I have donations that I need to send to Camp Promise of Flint, and but no way to get them there. It's probably too much stuff for one person to take on, so I am looking for multiple people heading from Austin to Michigan...or one person with too much space on their hands.
Supplies include:
A tent
A massive tarp & smaller, water proof, tarp-like things
Medical supplies
Sleeping gear
Clothes/heavy coats

I need for these things to be picked up from my place in South Austin within the next 5 or 6 days, since I am leaving America in 9 days.
Thank you for your assistance in supporting our Water Protectors.

NoLNGInThe253 Women's Silent March w/Cheryl Angel

August 8, 2017, 6:00pm - August 8, 2017, 11:00pm

There is powerful medicine in the healing strength of women and we need it NOW! EDUCATE YOUR COMMUNITIES WITH TRUTH! For nearly two years residents and members of local Indigenous tribes have been fighting the construction of a FRACKED GAS operation (LNG, liquified natural gas) on the tide flats in the Port of Tacoma. This operation includes pipelines and an 8 MILLION gallon processing tank (roughly THE SIZE OF THE TACOMA DOME), immediately adjacent to Puyallup tribal lands and water and a mere six blocks from private homes. THE LOCAL UTILITIES ISN'T SO LOCAL! Not only has PSE (Puget Sound Energy) never built an LNG facility, let alone one of this magnitude, but it would be sited on a known major earthquake fault and in the heart of a highly populated urban area. Several fuel and chemical processing plants, as well as a highly contaminated Superfund clean up site, already exist in the area of the proposed plant. In addition, the Targa Sound Terminal company is teeing up further risk in this catastrophic game of Russian roulette with plans for a weekly train to the port with 107 rail cars loaded with highly volatile fuel. (see Targa history at www.sightline.org/2015/07/08/tacomas-ticking-time-bomb/). PSE is an Australian/Canadian private, for-profit, energy corporation. They do not eat, sleep, or live in Tacoma - what right do they have to gamble from afar with our precious environment and lives? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! COME LEND SUPPORT! The date August 8th or 8-8-8 Lions Gate, is a spiritually POWERFUL energy that when combined with the abundant feminine energy, has the ability to create real, conscious change through our intent. This gives us an opportunity to connect our divine feminine strength and bring our minds and hearts as one, to stop the LNG. Our goal is to have 253 warrior women representing the 253. We will walk in silence with one drummer. We will vocalize our voices through our clothing, physical expressions, and signs. The idea is to walk in unity from Wright Park to the Tollefson Tower. We will make a stop at the City Hall to lend support to those voices speaking out at the city council meeting. Men and children are ALWAYS welcome to walk in solidarity with us. We ask that you remain on either side of the march, on the outside. We also encourage our men warrior friends to attend the Tacoma City Council meeting that is also on Tuesday at 5 PM. It is the monthly public forum where each citizen has 3 minutes to speak to the Mayor and Council members on "NO LNG". Then the men could meet up and support us at the Tollefson Plaza for the rally or we can gather them up to follow us, if the City Council meeting is over when we stop by City Hall. Two important events. Let's divide and conquer! Here is the link to this event: www.facebook.com/events/814718205372952/?hc_location=ufi MNIWICONI AND THE Water Is Life Movement SUPPORT! Currently, we are actively fundraising to bring WORLD RENOWNED NON-Violent Indigenous Community Activist, Cheryl Angel to Tacoma to spread love, healing, awareness, and education to the communities in need. “I’M A PROTECTOR.” Cheryl Angel is a Sicangu Lakota spiritual activist dedicated to non-violent direct action and environmental justice. Years of activism led Cheryl to Standing Rock in 2016, where she became a community member of Sacred Stone Camp. She led prayer and ceremonies during the almost year-long occupation to stop the Dakota Access pipeline from infringing on Native rights, and destroying both fragile cultural treasures and clean water. Now she travels the world to share the message of decolonizing Unci Mahka, or Grandmother Earth and protecting her watersheds.*** Please consider making a financial donation to help with her travel expenses: 350seattle.nationbuilder.com/womens_march_expenses I cannot stress to you, the importance of Cheryl's presence at this crucial moment in the resistance of the #LNG. She has amazing words and an invigorating message to share with all. ***Quoted from her website: cherylangel.org/ -------->------->------->------->------->------->------> "Warriors are those who choose to stand between their enemy and all that she loves and holds sacred”… Anna Bean, Puyallup Nation <-------<-------<-------<-------<-------<-------<------- DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS HISTORIC EVENT!!! Total distance: 1.4 miles (the pace will be very slow, we want all able to move forward with us) The walk will start at Wright Park (501 S I Street Tacoma, WA 98405) WANT TO CARPOOL? www.groupcarpool.com/t/p2jbzw Public Transportation: From Seattle Route 594 towards 594 Lakewood-Tacoma.

Texas Water Protectors: learn how to fight for future generations in solidarity with the Standing Rock movement by getting the background context you need!!!

-

If you consider yourself an ally but don't have a lot of experience working alongside Native communities, communities of color, and frontline communities

If you feel passionate about protecting the environment but are not sure how to take the next step and getting involved in local environmental and social justice efforts

If you want to learn how best to work respectfully alongside Native people and people of color in Austin and Texas -- many of whom are fighting for clean air and water as a matter of immediate physical and cultural survival, and have been doing so for hundreds of years

If you want to learn what kind of work from allies is really needed, and what can actually be harmful

... then this symposium in Austin next Friday night and Saturday (all day) was designed for folks just like you.

Please help spread the word! Please invite a friend! And please RSVP to help the wonderful organizers out.:)

We hope to see you there! You're welcome even if you don't live in Austin, and it's free. Happy to answer any questions, or send them to the event organizers through the event page.

TX Water Protectors say NO to Corruption at TPWD

March 23, 2017, 7:30am - March 23, 2017, 12:00pm

Kelcy Warren is a pipeline billionaire, Energy Transfer Partners CEO, and man behind the Dakota Access Pipeline, Comanche Trail Pipeline (El Paso), and Trans-Pecos Pipeline (Big Bend). After donating $700k to Governor Greg Abbott's campaign, Warren was rewarded with a seat on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission - a commission that is in part responsible for regulating pipelines in our state parks! Warren has vowed to continue constructing his pipelines despite widespread public and government opposition. Come rally and speak at the next public meeting of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission in solidarity with Native peoples in protecting our land and water from pipelines and fossil fuel development. WHAT: TX Water Protectors say NO! to Kelcy Warren on TPWC WHEN: Thursday, March 23rd 8:00 AM NOTE: The TPWC meets March 23rd for a commissioner's meeting that is open to the public at 9 am.

The sacred springs of Texas have nurtured the people of this land for thousands of years. Currently only 6 percent of Texas lands remains in public hands - these places should not be given away for corporate exploitation and the export of fossil fuels, putting money into the pockets of those who want to exploit our land. The political economy of Texas is corrupt - it’s rooted in a millionaire class that is exploiting our public land for their private gain. The TPWD mission is severely undermined by the practice of using public lands for resource extraction such as oil drilling, gas fracking and energy transport pipelines. Boards and commissions that are supposed to be in charge of preserving the public good are instead appointed by our Governor Greg Abbott for their own professional corporate interests. Our waters are currently under threat. It’s time to take a stand and speak out against the fossil fuel destruction and corruption of our lands, water, air, and democracy in Texas. *Balmorhea & San Solomon Springs are threatened by Apache Corporation’s oil & gas drilling near Balmorhea State Park.

City Council Meeting: We will be asking people to show our support for Divesting from Dirty Banks in solidarity with Standing Rock and West Texas by wearing BLUE and holding signs that say "AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL: LET'S DIVEST FROM DAPL".

Hey everyone who came out last Monday — we LOVE you! Thank you for showing your support and coming out in the middle of your workdays. Video should be out soon and if you saw any coverage of the protest or have video, please share!

Now to business: There are a few DIVEST AUSTIN events for Texas Water Protectors in the coming hours/days/weeks.

And – we are very Sorry for the short notice — we're learning as we go and the more help we have the better / more farsighted planning we can do in the future. We need you and the movement needs you. We are deeply grateful for your time, support, and commitment.

TONIGHT:

If you're interested in supporting the group who are RESEARCHING AND/OR LIAISING WITH CITY HALL: we are meeting at Austin Java on Lamar near 12th at 7:30PM.

IMMINENT (NEXT 1-2 WEEKS):

If you're interested in events planning (likely involving rotating protests at banks that support Energy Transfer Partners where the city has its money at present) that subgroup will be meeting soon. RSVP to this general event to get updates as planning moves forward.

MARCH 2:

City Council Meeting: We will be asking people to show our support for Divesting from Dirty Banks in solidarity with Standing Rock and West Texas by wearing BLUE and holding signs that say "AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL: LET'S DIVEST FROM DAPL". We *won't* be speaking yet because we don't yet have enough information to build a strategy around, but your presence now will make adifference. More here soon too.

SOON (NEXT 3-4 WEEKS): Another bank protest featuring divestment, your beautiful faces, more information about who it is that we are fighting for, and more organization in terms of how you can get involved. STAY TUNED.

CALL-TO-ACTION

Please Print Out These Four Letters.

FILL OUT your name and address, and mail them to the Railroad Commission to demand a HEARING for the permits for FOUR INJECTION WELLS.

These wells are the aftermath of disastrous fracking.
The contaminated water is potentially sent right back into priceless aquifers.
These injection wells cause earthquakes.
Demanding a hearing will slow down and stall these greedy oil & gas companies that are trashing our beloved Texas.

I took a pic of this handout today at the Chase protest but am not sure who it came from. When I opened up my account at UFCU later I mentioned Fire Your Bank for the $25 referral donation but I was unsure who the donation was for. Does anyone know so I can get the donation to them? …
