Description
 
One & a half billion people have no access to clean drinking water. This number will double in 20 years. All humanity faces declining water quality because of pollution. This cogent call to action: Explains what is happening; shows the obstacles in the way of an adequate response, focusing on the corp. interests that now control the water industry; & sets out a cogent critique of the current market-oriented system that sees water as a commodity, rather than as a community resource & a fundamental human right. Petrella calls for a world water contract that would enshrine fresh water as an essential good to which all people have a right. We must mobilize around this demand, as well as for a program to provide fresh water for the rural & urban poor.
