By Rebecca Mwase and Hannah Pepper-Cunningham. On top of the checkout counter at the gas station where we buy Gatorade after long rehearsals for our upcoming performance, Cry You One, there is a petition. It reads, "WE STAND AGAINST RIVER DIVERSIONS." This is clearly an issue people care about. From concerns about increased flooding to the destruction of oyster beds and fisheries, people have a reason to be worried about river diversions.
