Stop Sabal Trail Pipeline!
Saving the Floridian Aquifer

"When I saw those pipelines coming in right next to our ceremonial ground, I could not do anything. I just stood there watching . . . in pain."  - Miccosukee Elder Bobby C. Billie on seeing the construction of one section of the pipeline that destroyed the creek near sacred ceremonial ground. 

On this week's episode of Love (and Revolution) Radio, we speak with three guests working across Florida to protect the Floridian Aquifer and indigenous rights from the effects of the construction of the Sabal Trail Pipeline. This tri-state natural gas pipeline is slated to be built by June 2017, and many people are concerned it could have catastrophic consequences on the wetlands and underground aquifer of North-Central Florida.

Here's your podcast link!

"All of the wetlands along the Southeast Corridor have been destroyed.
It has been beyond painful."
- Shannon Larsen on the impacts of the construction of one segment of the pipeline.
