“Water is ours” is the movie is about the threat of privatization of the water supply in Latin America. American companies succeeded to take over water supplies-company’s in several Latino countries. The result was very expansive water cost that many couldn’t afford and also bad salaries and conditions for the workers on these water companies.
The documentary “Water is ours” shows how the Latinos fought back and could put back the administration of the water companies so that it became nationalized again (an heroic achievement). Many Latinos dies in this battle. In this film we can also see the subversive effect of this “free trade agreements” like TISA. We also see that global financial institutions like the World Bank is supporting the dangerous privatization methods.
The Latinos shows us what can be achieved if all go together and fight for a common cause. Impressive. This film is made by PSI Global Union who is a global network of unions.
