The corporate colonization of Maine's water

Nickie Sekera, trustee, Fryeburg Water District - Never would our Founding Fathers or the people who fought for this land imagine that its current leaders would be willing to give up our water sovereignty to a foreign corporation for export. Just as our predecessors colonized this territory and took its resources from its rightful stewards, we are now entering the next wave of colonization and this time by a multinational corporation.

Though the state may need a lot of pressure to do what is right by its people rather than submit to corporate interests, the people of Maine do have the power to lead us into securing our groundwater under a public trust for future generations.
