Our environment will be thoroughly destroyed by the fossil fuel oligarchs only to produce stranded assets as technology and new money win the day. Even more reason to fight our Luddite politicians from trying to protect the old money.

We are all in this fight together, we’re here together because we all care about our country and know that water is valuable and we need to protect it. It’s what sustains us all here in this room today. The land and the waterways are in our songs and story lines, our memories and dreaming, it’s in our blood all of us here.
