Blue Gold: The Battle Against Corporate Theft of the World
Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke
The world's most fundamental and indispensable resource - fresh water - is becoming scarcer, fast. It is now big business and a preserve of the wealthy.
"In this book, we tell the story of the world's growing fresh water crisis, the corporate assault on the water "commons," and the complicity of governments and international institutions in the theft of the world's fresh water. Most important, we show how ordinary citizens all over the world are engaging in a new form of citizen-based politics. They are rejecting the commodification of water and taking back control, becoming "keepers" of the fresh water systems in their localities. These reformers and fighters are the heroes and heroines of the story. Their courage and foresight shine in our hearts. If we follow their example, we may be able to save our vital supplies of fresh water before it is too late."
