Yesterday, Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow spoke to more than 800 students at Syracuse University in New York state.
In advance of the event, the Daily Orange had reported, “Barlow’s lecture, ‘The Global Water Crisis and the Coming Battle for the Right to Water’, will be held in Hendricks Chapel at 7:30 p.m. and will address how the misuse of water may be contributing to global warming, according to a Syracuse University News Services release published March 29. …Syracuse University geography professor Farhana Sultana said she hopes the lecture will motivate research and action from students. She plans to moderate a student discussion with Barlow. Sultana’s students have read Barlow’s books and watched her documentaries in preparation.”
