In St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, activists fighting the construction of the Bayou Bridge pipeline say they are facing increasing police repression. Police tasered and arrested one water protector Monday, only a few days after a journalist and three water protectors were arrested and charged with felony trespassing on Saturday. The 163-mile Bayou Bridge pipeline is being built by Energy Transfer Partners, the same company behind the controversial Dakota Access pipeline.
