Two current water stories from Alternet

Alternet logoJeff Conant of Food and Water Watch has a terrific inside look at what’s happened in Bolivia since the 2000 “water war” in Cochabamba that ousted Bechtel. Conant’s piece is an important look at the problems that communities face, especially in countries lacking in both financial and water resources, to create truly equitable systems of public control of water. The insights in the piece about the problems Bolivians have faced since taking back control of their water and the lessons they’ve learned are  important to share with other water justice advocates.

And we’ve got a piece by AlterNet regular Stan Cox about how development is pushing Florida over the brink when it comes to resources like water. This is not only a problem threatening the future of Florida, Stan writes, but also applies to many other states in the U.S.

Be sue to check these out if they catch your interest and sign up for our weekly water newsletter if you’re not already on the list.

  1. I am a neophyte to the blogoshpere but I need to let people know about a very unjust situation taking place in Door County, Wisconsin. The DNR allows a group of wealthy people to pour week killers directly into Green Bay. I live in the area and there is nothing I can do to stop it. I would like to know how to inform as many people as possible about this disgusting state of affairs. If you have any suggestions, please drop me an e-mail. Thank you! – Mike
