VIDEO: Maude Barlow on Democracy Now! on right to water

Democracy Now! reports that, “The United Nations General Assembly has declared for the first time that access to clean water and sanitation is a fundamental human right. In a historic vote Wednesday, 122 countries supported the resolution, and over forty countries abstained from voting, including the United States, Canada and several European and other industrialized countries. There were no votes against the resolution. We speak with longtime water justice activist, Maude Barlow.”

To see Maude interviewed by Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, please go to http://www.democracynow.org/seo/2010/7/29/in_historic_vote_un_declares_access.

You will also see in this video a powerful clip of Bolivian Ambassador Pablo Solon talking about the right to water resolution just four weeks ago at our ‘Shout out for Global Justice’ public forum in Toronto on the eve of the G20 summit there.
