Water is a public good, not a commodity. We invite the European Commission to propose legislation implementing the human right to water and sanitation as recognised by the United Nations, and promoting the provision of water and sanitation as essential public services for all. The EU legislation should require governments to ensure and to provide all citizens with sufficient and clean drinking water and sanitation. We urge that:

Monitor – EU Water Privatization (7:56 min)

WDR, German public TV broadcasted a 8 minutes video as a part of Monitor program in December, exposing the Commission’s push for privatisation in Greece and Portugal, via the Troika.

It features the Concessions Directive that Michel Barnier, the Commissioner of Internal market, is trying to get through the European Parliament now. Barnier contradicts himself on whether or not the Commission pushes for privatisation and he makes an interesting comment on an expert group on water issues, that he agrees is corporate-dominated.

Some quotes from the video:

“The most important political changes are sometimes hidden in the details. Veiled in a European regulation the European Commission tries to accomplish the project of a century. At stake is nothing less than privatisation of the water supply all over Europe. If the Commission succeeds, a public good will become an investment opportunity with prospects for billions of profit in Germany alone. It is a victory of big multinational corporations who fought a long time for this privatization. The consequences for us consumers could be tremendous”.

“The idea of the Commission: water licenses have to be tendered thought out the EU. But this will benefit private companies because with the dumping prices of big corporations, municipal operators can not compete”.

Water is a public good, not a commodity. We invite the European Commission to propose legislation implementing the human right to water and sanitation as recognised by the United Nations, and promoting the provision of water and sanitation as essential public services for all. The EU legislation should require governments to ensure and to provide all citizens with sufficient and clean drinking water and sanitation. We urge that:

– The EU institutions and Member States be obliged to ensure that all inhabitants enjoy the right to water and sanitation.

-Water supply and management of water resources not be subject to ‘internal market rules’ and that water services are excluded from liberalisation.

-The EU increases its efforts to achieve universal access to water and sanitation.

Sign! the European Citizens’ Initiative
WATER and SANITATION are a HUMAN RIGHT

All citizens need clean drinking water and quality sanitation. We ask the European Union to guarantee these human rights through the promotion of water supply and sanitation as essential public services for all. These rights must be implemented.

The European Union should set binding targets for all Member States to achieve 100% coverage in Europe. We believe that the European Union should also make a bigger effort towards achieving universal access to water and sanitation outside the European Union. Millions of people are still deprived of these services.

Our goals:

1. Guaranteed water and sanitation for all in Europe.
2. No liberalisation of water services.
3. Universal (Global) access to water and sanitation.

This campaign is a tool to commit to the human right to water and sanitation. It is a tool to change the mind-set in the European Commission from a market-based approach with the focus on competition to a rights-based approach with the focus on public service. It aims to achieve universal (global) access to water and sanitation and to safeguard the limited public water resources for future generations.

WATER is a PUBLIC GOOD, NOT a COMMODITY.
WATER and SANITATION are a HUMAN RIGHT
WATER is a PUBLIC GOOD, NOT a COMMODITY.
