Flow: How Did a Handful of Corporations Steal Our Water?

Excellent documentary about the privatisation of water- mostly in developing nations, where any increase in expense can be a death sentence, but also in the USA. Nestle, Vivendi, Suez, Coca-Cola and other major multi-nationals are profiled and the horror of it all was beautifully and simply articulated. Resourse wars are here.
Sign the petition to create Article 31- a vital addition to the UN's 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - the right to water.
Article 31:
Everyone has the right to clean and accessible water, adequate for the health and well-being of the individual and family, and no one shall be deprived of such access or quality of water due to individual economic circumstance.
