Program Title: WINGS #05-17 Pipelines No!
Description: APPPL, Alliance to Protect Our People and the Places We Live, is a grassroots organization formed in North Carolina in 2016. For two weeks in March 2017, they walked 200 miles along the designated route of a fracked gas pipeline to warn and unify against violations of native rights; forced land seizures; damage to farmland, health and environment; and the creation of "sacrifice zones" targeted on poor people and people of colour. Also heard in this program, two speakers from a Native Nations Rise rally held in Washington DC against Dakota Access pipeline approval.

Host(s): Melinda Tuhus
Featured Speakers/Guests: Speakers in North Carolina: Ericka Faircloth of the Lumbee Tribe, speaking for the Coalition of Woodland Nations; Connie Leeper, an organizer with the environmental group NC WARN; Barbara Exum, representing a cohesive African American community where land is being commandeered for the pipeline; Emmy Wyman, rally emcee; Emily Saba, 20, a college student from Charlotte. Speakers in Washington DC: Helena Wong from the group It Takes Roots, and Fawn Sharp, President of the Quinault Indian Nation in Washington State.

Credits: Recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus; series producer, Frieda Werden
