StopETP Coalition Rallies at Energy Transfer Partners HQ in Dallas

Despite unprecedented protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and being charged for many violations during the construction of DAPL, Energy Transfer Partners continues to expand its operations across the United States. From North Dakota to Pennsylvania, from Ohio to Louisiana, from Michigan to Texas, ETP violates Indigenous sovereignty, human and environmental rights. “Enough is enough.

We’ve come together today to say ‘Stop.’ Stop the violence, stop the pollution, #StopETP.”
