Poisonous water. Water shut offs. Billions of people drinking water contaminated by plastic particles.

Why is this shameless criminal disregard for the health of the people allowed?

Government today is in the hands of corporations, water is becoming private property and sold for a profit. The fight is to keep our water safe and publicly owned. A first step is to fight for water affordability plans where water is priced based on family income, and where the public, not corporate interests, controls the water and where we insure safe water for all. Our demands are: No one should be denied water! No one should have to drink poisoned water! No one should be allowed to own or profit from water!
