Aotearoa Water Action’s fight for water security

Produced by Better Ancestors

Without water there is no life and yet across Aotearoa and beyond exploitation of water for profit is accelerating. But Aotearoa Water Action provides support to communities who are battling to protect water security in their region and shows the power of a community coming together, resourcing and supporting each other to confront a massive problem. As Aotearoa Water Action’s Peter Richardson says, we’ve had decades of unconstrained capitalism focused on short-term growth, but the wheel is turning and “the more people who get involved, the quicker that will happen”.
