The life and death fight for publicly owned clean, affordable water

People across the country are forced to drink toxic water — and pay high prices for it !


The water crisis — the poisoning, the shutoffs, the pipeline threats, the destruction of our streams and water ways, the increasing price of water, the effort of corporations to own the public’s water and profit from its sale — is creating a life or death movement throughout the country. The stories below illustrate the breadth of this struggle. We hope the coverage will help communities begin to contact one another and talk strategies.
