    Thanks Best of the Left for your coverage of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Sept 16. The same big money ETP is constructing a pipeline in the Transpecos area of Far West Texas. We have a big rally THIS WEEKEND and need some attention to protect our pristine landscapes, ancient archaeological sites, and sacred ground. We expect 100’s of people including folks from AIM (the American Indian Movement) of Central Texas but are getting very little attention. Please PLEASE spread the word of our struggle too. http://www.defendbigbend.org/ http://www.bigbendconservationalliance.org/

    Hey Jay…Your show makes the world a better place!
    I am from North Dakota and I now live in the pristine area of the Big Bend in Far West Texas. ETP, the same folks threatening up north, are laying a pipeline here threatening our water, our archaeological and sacred grounds, our dark skies, and our future RIGHT NOW.
    The Native Americans from the group AIM central Texas (American Indian Movement) are on their way now to the small town of Alpine Texas for a Big march to and vigil at the historic site that is being destroyed right now. We need help getting attention. If you look at the map of the spaghetti that are pipelines across this country, the Big Bend has not one noodle…YET. HELP!
    I attach our press release and information about our march and our struggle. If anyone can show up, document, and or help us spread the word, we need your help.
