Louisiana: Water Protectors Slow Bayou Bridge Pipeline Construction

HeadlineOct 04, 2018

In Louisiana, police arrested three women protesters Wednesday after one demonstrator scaled a crane at a construction site for the 163-mile Bayou Bridge pipeline and two others locked themselves to its base, temporarily halting construction. The pipeline is being built by Energy Transfer Partners, the same company behind the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. Those arrested face felony charges under a harsh new anti-protest law signed by Louisiana’s governor earlier this year.
