Thirst free pdf Out of sight of most Americans, global corporations like Nestle, Suez, and Veolia are rapidly buying up our local water sources-lakes, streams, and springs-and taking control of public water services. In their drive to privatize and commodify water, they have manipulated and bought politicians, clinched backroom deals, and subverted the democratic process by trying to deny citizens a voice in fundamental decisions about their most essential public resource. The authors' PBS documentary Thirst showed how communities around the world are resisting the privatization and commodification of water.
