Aqua vita

Development and Peace is currently running a campaign against the privatization of a fundamental and essential resource - water.

While I believe that everyone has a right to private property and space. I also strongly believe that fundamental human needs and requirements must not be denied or taken away from people. Water is definitely one of those. No one person, no one organization has a right to exclusively monopolize a fundamental resource so essential for life.

Water must be available to all. No one must be denied their right to it. No one has the right to monopolize it. No one has the right to make it unfit for others (pollution). No one has the right to deny it to others (diversion, damming).

I have no problem with people offering a service and charging for it, but I do have a problem with someone taking and controlling something that should be freely available to all.
