No one should be allowed to gamble with clean, safe water – but that’s exactly what financial speculators are trying to do by trading water futures. Allowing financial speculators to profit off of and drive up prices on a resource that we all need is dangerous!
From increased water prices to the loss of small, family farms, the only people that would benefit from water futures trading are financial speculators. Water is a human right and a resource that belongs to all the plants and animals as well. Water is not a commodity to enrich financial speculators!

This a call for support and outreach. Parents and children in the East Ramapo (ER) School district need our support. The crisis in their schools – a hostile school board, more than 10 years of austerity budgets, racial discrimination, and buildings declared unsafe and with lead in the water – is on the agenda. We hope you can show your support for ER parents and children at their parent-led forum on Saturday February 24, 11:00 am-1:00 pm at the Spring Valley Salvation Army Community Center. At you can see from the attached flyers for the event, this is about grassroots organizing by the parents and community themselves.
