Join The Debate On Water Commoditization-Economist.com

You can register there and give your opinion in an open debate on water commoditization up to October 10th. Vandana Shiva represents the con side, and someone named Steven Hoffman represents the pro side. This is a good opportunity to let your voice be heard about commoditization of water resources. And of course, it isn't any surprise to see DOW Chemical sponsoring this especially since they wish to buy desalination plants and probably wants to see privitization to hold back resources to spur the building of such plants. There is an all out assault on our resources by corporate America for profit now and we must fight it for our own survival. I firmly believe that now, and this open debate is where you can make your opinions known. I am registered there as 'waterahumanright.' Please participate and give the water justice movement and environmental democracy a hand.

Currently, the voting is: pro 40%/con 60%.

Thanks!

You are so right! Water is life!

I want to share with you an event that is happening this entire month called the Blue Planet Run 30-mile challenge.

You can run, walk or cycle anywhere you want in order to complete 30 miles in 30 days!

A $1/mile pledge will help raise funds to provide 1,200 kids and their families in Tanzania receive the wells they need to access safe drinking water.

This is a fun and easy way to help provide kids with health, hope and education.
