What our Farmers Face in 2015? Water Woes
Troubled by waste, changing climate and contamination, water is set to become the worlds scarcest resource. Given the history and complexities of the system, water supply, use and rights are a daily obstacle for our farmers.
The Fight for Water: a farmer worker struggle will screen as part of a larger series on the subject of water in agriculture.
When an environmental ruling shut the water pumps to a region of the California Central Valley, a community of valley farmers and their farm workers stage a march across the California Central Valley in order to fight for their water. Followed by a larger discussion on water scarcity, rights and policies.
