World Water Day – 22 March 2012 – Water is a human right.

Are you thirsty? What would you suggest for equitable water distribution for all of the world, natural and human…

Here is a June 2011 excerpt from The Council of Canadians’ website:  “All governments are now bound by these historic UN resolutions. Whether or not they voted for the two resolutions, every member nation of the UN is now obligated to accept and recognize the human right to water and sanitation and come up with a plan of action based on the obligation to respect, the obligation to protect and the obligation to fulfil these new rights,” says Barlow.

“Even though the Harper government shockingly did not vote for the right to water and sanitation, it is bound now by this obligation. We are calling on the government to recognize these new rights and let Canadians know when it will be tabling its plan of action with the UN.”

Across Canada, all peoples have the right to water and sanitation…

In Palestine and Israel, all peoples have the right to water and sanitation…

Yet, the right to water and sanitation of all peoples in these places is not honoured or protected. I invite you to learn about World Water Day 2012 both in terms of the Canadian, at-home context (click here) and Canadian responsibility in our global community (e.g., in Palestine and Israel – please see below).

Thank you.

  1. travel impressions Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But think about if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its niche. Very good blog!
