The Longest Straw: "Paya the Movie" movie screening

Last night, at the Paya: The Water Story of the Paiute screening at PatagoniaAlan Bacock and the Owens Valley Indian Water Commission broke down the toxic relationship the city of Los Angeles has with Inyo County.

The city of Los Angeles owns over 240,000 acres in Payahuunadü (the Owens Valley). Griffith park in Los Angeles (one of the largest municipal parks with urban wilderness) is over 4,210 acres. That's only about 2% of the land area LADWP owns in Payahuunadü (the Owens Valley)! It is the responsibility of all Angelenos that pay their water bill to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to come together with the people of Payahuunadü (the Owens Valley) and be good stewards of this land.
