ckolar's Journal: POV / PBS story on water privatization

Journal by ckolar
P.O.V. - Thirst | PBS I caught this tonight by accident and was glad not to have missed it. It held out slight hope that mass grassroots movements might be able to stand up to the likes of Bechtel once they are done with Iraq and start privatizing water. The segments showing the people of Rajasthan organizing their own community infrastructure and boycotting bottled water got me thinking about how habituated we've become carrying it around all of the time.

One thing that's bugged me a great deal: what happened to having a cooler of water on the bench at a little league game that the kids drink from? Every game the kids are toting around all of those bottles and tossing them around all over the place, seems like another step away from exposing the kids to the concept of a community resource (albeit on a small scale and having nothing to do with Bechtel).
