(4 October 2018) In 3 weeks time the European Parliament will vote the final report of the Drinking Water Directive. This was the first legislative step taken by the European Commission regarding the ECI Right2water. The right wing in the European Parliament and some governments are stalling this report trying to water down the European commitment towards and effective implementation of the Human Right to water as defined by the United Nations in 2010.

International Civil Society organisations have started a campaing asking MEPs to support the compromise amendments tabled in the Environment Committee by the progressive block. The letter below is fully supported by EPSU. If you wish to co-sign please add the information in this link https://goo.gl/forms/oU6qPdlTN3KO7S4t1 before the 9th of October.
