Points of Unity:
       To find our common ground with those we work with.

1. No Dirty and Destructive Energy Projects: We struggle in solidarity with the land to resist not just the Tennessee Pipeline.  In this struggle we respect all life.

2. Seek our Common Ground: If we disagree with or don’t endorse a certain action we will not condemn or implicate other people.

3. Safety is a Priority: Dirty extracted gas development and pipelines are unsafe for us and our communities.  We will not take unnecessary risks or put anyone, ourselves included, at risk without explicit and informed consent.  This includes legal risks.

4. Respect Desires of Local Community: All campaigns and actions should be driven by people who will continue to be here.

5. Respect Individual Autonomy: We are all individuals taking individual actions.  We will not tell others what they can or cannot do, but rather make informed decisions for ourselves.  It is important for everyone’s safety that we don’t ask people to do things they are uncomfortable with.

6. We Will Not Tolerate Oppressive Behavior: Including those based on race, class, immigration status, sexual orientation, age, ability, gender, gender identity.

7. We Oppose any State Repression of Dissent: Including surveillance, infiltration, disruption and violence.  We agree not to assist law enforcement actions against activists and others.

Other groups should feel free to modify and adopt as they see fit.  Let us know if you or your group would like to endorse.
