When John Doyle first noticed signs of trouble in the Little Bighorn River, he was still a young member of the Apsaalooke Nation in southeastern Montana. Stagnant water would pool in some areas, filling with algae. It wouldn’t even freeze in the cold of winter. Later, catfish would turn up with quarter-size white sores.
Even today in the 21st century, lack of access to clean water remains a problem for millions of people around the world. However, this is not accidental. The corporate status quo wants to control access to water and is conducting a political and media lobbying campaign in order to achieve this.
In the developing world, controlling societies starts with controlling water. This is why, towards fighting back against the interests behind this campaign, the Free Water for All campaign is an important part of our Movement of Life project.
