I got a little emotional writing this on my final night on the road after driving 8,000 Miles in a month... and shooting an absurd amount of footage... but here is an update for everyone:  Water is life, don’t take it for granted.... not one drop... i just spent the past month filming some of the most polluted wastelands in the country. Things are bad out there folks... we are poisoning ourselves and all other life on this planet. I’m truly disturbed by the shit I’ve been witness of all over the country... Today, I filmed a turtle swimming to its death rattle in a polluted canal in Gary, Indiana. There was oil all over the banks of the water as it struggled to swim through the toxic waste and chunks of nonsense on the surface. Gary was a trip but so was filming Patoka and the Westlake landfill yesterday... I don’t even know what to say anymore but please do whatever you can in your own way to fight for the water. At the feverish rate we are going the future is looking scary, these post apocalyptic wastelands that have been destroyed by the oil and gas industry, mining, etc are indicative of where we are going collectively unless we make a profound paradigm shift. The industry refers to these places they destroy as sacrifice zones... they shouldn’t be so arrogant in their belief that they are disconnected from the environmental impact... everything is connected... I get that everyone wants to live a prosperous life and not focus on the negative, but please I implore you, care for the water, it’s hurting and needs your help.... thank you to all the amazing water protectors I’ve spoken with the past month. I promise to do your stories justice. My heart is with you all on the front lines, Mni Wiconi 💙  #mniwiconi #waterislife #america #climatechange #pollution #fucktrump #hillaryforprison #fuckthetwopartysystem #capitalismsucks #fraud #reflection #waves #gratitude #abundance #fracking #indigenousrights #protest #resist #resistance #waterprotectors

Friday night Cyanide Fish Fry Protest in front of the Ogden Club, a front for the back 40 mine. Aquila resources intends on putting the acid sulfide mine 150 feet away from the pristine Menominee river in defiance of any kind of ecological sanity or respect for native tribes. I spent two weeks here last summer and it was good to reconnect with friends. Say no to the Back 40 mine  #noback40 #nobackforty #menominee #menomineeriver #water #waterislife #protest #fish #cyanide #mining #nodapl #shutdownline5 #noline3
The Mackinaw Bridge.... a few years after its construction, Enbridge installed a pipeline running along the floor of the lake. Line 5 was only supposed to be operational for 50 years but it’s now 65 and the Michigan government continues to let Enbridge slide and operate a pipeline that is far past its expiration date. If a spill occurs, especially during the winter, there will be little recourse to clean up the petroleum. The currents in mackinaw are incredibly strong and a disaster could be real tragedy for the Great Lakes. Demand Enbridge and the Michigan government shut down line 5!!! #enbridge #line5 #shutdownline5 #greatlakes #michigan #puremichigan #impeachsnyder #fracking #gas #oil #pipeline #nomorepipelines #keepitintheground #confluencedocumentary #water #waterislife #mackinaw #mackinac #michiganup #yoopers #nodapl #noline3 #waves #clouds #bridge #sky #swimming #northernmichigan
Evansville, Indiana - president trump visited the Koch brothers home town of Evansville for a rally. “Keep America Great” was the slogan blasting over and over as orewellian propaganda played loudly on the loop. “President trump Cares about the first amendment as much as the 2nd!” He had a funny way of showing it by isolating all protests into a corralled “free speech zone”  A police officer pulled a pepper ball gun on me for filming a black lives matter activist who was being arrested. Told the cop it was absolutely unnecessary to point a gun at me and I would back up when he put the gun down. I was about 20 feet away, not interfering whatsoever. Other trump supporters attempted to keep blocking my view and danced back and forth in front of the camera.  Although hostile territory, a large group of protestors gathered in front of the Ford center to make their voices heard. Some activists and trump supporters drove several hours to attend. A line of cops stood between them like referees at a sporting events. Both teams shouted loudly at each other. This is America 2018... #trump #fucktrump #protest #blacklivesmatter #occupy #anotherworldispossible #evansville #indiana #impeachtrump #orwellian #1984 #corruption #politics #frontline #partisan #cultofpersonality #cult #echochamber #water #waterislife #mniwiconi #notmypresident #maga #millieweaver #infowars #fakenews #america #thisiswhatdemocracylookslike
