Don't ever let so-called environmentalists trick you into thinking they care about cleaning up the environment. Their only agenda is fundraising and political gain.
A group of environmentalist wackos recently decided to setup camp and "protest" near the Bee Bayou in Louisiana. The result? Mountains of garbage and trash consisting of the group’s banner; dangerous chemicals, plastic wrappers, tarps, buckets, human waste and personal belongings were left behind.
The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office posted the following message on social media:
Since July, several out of state protestors with the L'eau Est La Vie Camp - No Bayou Bridge have been residing in the Atchafalaya Basin area of St. Martin Parish in connection with the Bayou Bridge Pipeline project. More recently, they took up encampment in an area known as Bee Bayou. The alleged mantra of this group of protestors is that they are “water protectors” and are trying to preserve the waterways, terrain, and wildlife.
However, as seen in these pictures, trash, including the group’s banner; chemicals, personal belongings, plastic wrappers, tarps, buckets and human waste was left in their wake. St. Martin Parish residents have always prided themselves with the beauty of the Basin. Many have earned their living hunting and fishing in the Basin, and even more have enjoyed the recreational benefits that the Atchafalaya Basin provides. Unfortunately, the trash this group left behind and being washed into the water; posed a real threat to wildlife, fish, and boaters.
Deputies with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office reached out to the group and told them to please return to the area and pick up all of the trash they left behind or they would face criminal charges. Upon return to the area on Tuesday, October 30, 2018, by Deputies with the St. Martin Parish Office, it was noted that the trash has now been removed.
Please help us keep St. Martin Parish Beautiful!
