  1. All creatures great and small, including humans, have the right to clean water. Politicians don’t bother to think beyond doing what their sponsors want done yet Nature demands otherwise. Pollution from commercial corporations are making America deadly for life. No living thing can exist without water but our need is for clean water. These industries and corporations plus plastics put anything they wish into our water supply. I feel they need to drink from the same water supply. Now the workers but the CEO’s!!! It’s the only way we will get their attention. If they have to drink the filth we would see change!
