The Water Protectors at Standing Rock created an historic, global inter-tribal act of solidarity in defiant recognition of the assault on our sacred earth and commonly held resources. Beverage bottling industry has stolen water to bottle in single-use petroleum plastic, of which 3% is recycled, and then sell it back to us! We must protect and defend our natural systems. During Covid19 quarantine we have seen how quickly and beautifully nature rebounds when we end the assault and allow healing!
