Corporate investors have a long-term goal to privatize the public’s water and make it available only to those who can pay. This is legal under capitalism, a system based on the private property interests of the few. In a cooperative society, water and other necessities would be publicly owned. Then, we could guarantee clean water and all the necessities of life for everyone. Water is a battlefront where we can make the need for a new society clear.

  1. The water wars are already under way, look at Detroit, look at Bolivia. The Bolivian government had already sold all water rights to their third largest city to Bechtel back in 1999.The IMF forced them. Bechtel immediately raised the price 20%. There were riots, people took to the streets,the government fell. The people won that round, but the corporations are back, taking a different tact.
