Transpecos Pipeline: Lives on the Line
The Trans-Pecos Pipeline, a project of the Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners (also behind the Dakota Access Pipeline) is slated to transport fracked gas through the heart of the Big Bend Region across the border into Mexico. Inspired to protect the wildlands of the Big Bend, people from across the region — ranchers and environmentalists, liberals and conservatives, native americans and citizens across the state have taken a stand in opposition to the Trans-Pecos Pipeline which would be the first in the region. This story gives voice to the people of this region and illuminates some of the most pressing issues of our time — private property rights and eminent domain, energy reform across borders, and the rise of native american voices in the environmental movement.
