A World Without Water

I did not think there was anything that could truly shock me any more, but watching A World Without Water has. I have managed to emotionally detach myself from the horrors of war, torture and abuse but watching a young girl crying because she has no friends as her family cannot afford water blind-sided me.
The privatisation of water has to be the greatest crime against humanity in the history of the world. It isn’t just affecting developing countries either, in Detroit, Michigan in the USA there are over 100,000 people without water because they cannot afford it. Water is essential to life and now it is being traded as a commodity. Is the UK exporting water? How long will it be, I wonder, for the insatiable greed for profit to extend it’s grasping claws into our lives…?
