Locals had no say when the water tankers rolled into town to pump their precious water and sell it off. So what are the small farmers of Stanley, Australia doing? They’re fighting back. They refuse to just let the global beverage giant Asahi bottle up their water, sell it off, and make millions while their town is left to run dry. But can they afford to keep fighting?

Now the community is facing a terrible choice: give up the fight, or their community group face bankruptcy. That is, unless, you can help. The residents of Stanley are asking for support: if enough of us around the world donate just $1, we can empower this village keep up their fight and send a message to corporate bullies everywhere. Will you chip in to help this small town fight for its water rights?
