(20 January 2016) The European Parliament has supported the demands of the ECI Right2Water. The Commission continues to stall. It does not propose new legislation. Struggles at national level to realise the right2water continue in several countries.
In a series of blogs we underline how the the right2water struggles go together with other fights of workers and citizens against austerity and corporate power.
The latest blog informs about our debate with the European Parliament and the Commission, as well as with the battle of workers in Athens and Thessaloniki to keep their companies in public ownership. And this despite the pressures of the European institutions on the Greek government to privatise them. Other blogs are available on that website. World Water Day 22 March will be another occasion to high light our demands.
