Stop the Comanche Trail Pipeline
This petition had 52,596 supporters
The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline has helped demonstrate the entire nation that pipelines can have a lasting negative impact on our water, air, and land. Now the same company that is threatening Standing Rock’s water, Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), is posing a similar risk to my community in El Paso, Texas.
Join us and ask U.S. District Judge Frank Montalvo to stop this pipeline.
The Comanche Trail Pipeline and it’s sister the Trans-Pecos will carry fracked gas from West Texas to Mexico, passing through biodiverse deserts and cross the Rio Grande river – and when they leak, they will poison plants, animals, and people living nearby.
We are concerned that this pipeline, like so many before it, will leak into our groundwater. 73% of water in El Paso is used for crops in the community and is threatened by possible contamination, due to construction under multiple canals. The Comanche Trail pipeline will run 300 yards from family homes, risking the safety of children who want to play outside.
Energy Transfer Partners has a history of putting profits before people, and disrespecting indigenous and communities of color who will be impacted by their extraction projects. We stand in solidarity with the indigenous-led Two Rivers Camp, who are organizing direct actions to stop this dangerous project.
Please add your name to demand that U.S. District Judge Frank Montalvo stand for our health and safety above profit.
