Nestlé's bottled water takings, the privatization of water infrastructure and the pollution of water impact Great Lakes communities and violate Indigenous treaty rights. Residents, Indigenous representatives and water groups came together in Flint, Michigan last September to oppose the commodification and privatization of water, and honor water sovereignty. Join us on March 14 to continue to talk about how Great Lakes peoples can take action to shift water ownership into guardianship and uphold the human right to clean water.
