In 2016 the Standing Rock Sioux tribe stood against the Energy Transfer Partners and the Dakota Access Pipeline. They put their lives on the line to protect the fresh water source for over 17 million people.
Today, indigenous tribes in the Amazon are doing the same to protect Mother Earth's lungs and the air that we ALL breathe. The burden of protecting our life source- water- should not be left up to vulnerable populations that have already been shamefully exploited.
This piece is a tribute to the water protectors- the real Life Savers of our nations and our world.
