"Los Angeles, California. February 12, 2013. Matt Damon, co-founder of Water.org, held a press conference where he announced that to protest the fact that 2.5 billion people lack access to a toilet or basic sanitation, he will be going on a "toilet strike."

He then announced his "toilet strike," declaring: "In protest of this global tragedy, until this issue is resolved, until everyone has access to clean water and sanitation... I will not go to the bathroom.""
