As a human being you have a Right to Water. Suffering such as created by the mass water cut-offs in Detroit is unconscionable. The human right to water is threatened by interlocking corporate-state schemes: 1) Pollution of surface & groundwater resources by the fossil-fuel industry--notably from hydraulic fracturing (fracking). 2) Privatization that exploits drought conditions stemming from climate change. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. 3) Imposition by the real estate lobby and its political allies of the “California water model” So-called "water grids" that entail mass movement of water to facilitate development in areas without their own water supply are already igniting Water Wars in the drought zones. We must discontinue the use of public funds and subsidies to lure people to the arid zones, and deny developers and special interests the right to offload the costs of population growth (schools, roads, water, power etc.) onto the backs of front line taxpayers and ratepayers.
Declare water a public right.
