Collectively we reject corporate control of the natural heritage that is water. As citizens, trade unions, humanitarian and environmental organizations, we feel it is our duty and obligation to protest against market ownership of a fundamental human right.

This initiative is imperative because in March 2018, Brazil will host the 8th edition of the World Water Forum (WWForum), an event organized by the World Water Council every three years since 1997, with tens of thousands of participants and a millionaire budget. The previous discussions point to the objective, even not totally explicit, of directing government decision-making and influencing public opinion towards a privatized view on water resources management.
