article 31 the right to have access to clean drinking water

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We watched flow for the love of water last night (note to self never watch films like this just before going to bed!)

the blurb:
Irena Salina's award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis.Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.
Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question "CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?"
Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.

Great movie! I agree, if it comes to your city, watch it! If you don't have the oppurtunity to see the movie, you can read "Blue covenant" by Maude Barlow
