Confronting the Pipedream is a grassroots radio project which seeks to unite these voices across colonial borders, and bring voices from the frontlines to the foreground. We will be releasing a series of 10-15 minute radio-quality, ready to air pieces which will take listeners to various sites along the routes of pipelines, from Wet’suwet’en territory in northern unceded British Columbia to the Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance in Texas. Rather than going to the “experts” and Environmental NGO’s, Confronting the Pipedream will amplify the voices of those directly affected, and those risking everything to fight back.

If you work with a community radio station and want to broadcast this program, please get in touch at confrontingthepipedream@riseup.net
