Maude Barlow Addresses UN General Assembly On Water

(24/4/09 - E)  Tells United Nations that water crisis poses "urgent" threat


Maude Barlow, author of "Blue Gold" and a world-renown activist against the privatization of water, addressed the United Nations on 22/4/09.

Part of her message was:


"The problem is that we humans have seen the Earth and its water resources as something that exists for our benefit and economic advancement rather than as a living ecological system that needs to be safeguarded if it is to survive," Barlow said. "The human water footprint surpasses all others and endangers life on Earth itself."
