Why is Water not a Declared Human Right?
2 years ago There are proposals to create an 'extra' article in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as proposed by the following organization: Article 31: Everyone has the right to clean and accessible water, adequate for the health and well-being of the individual and family, and no one shall be deprived of such access or quality of water due to individual economic circumstance. - Yet, we understand that the problem is not the proposal and integration of this vital amendment, but the implementation thereof in a world where our water has become an asset in itself and a primary resource of interest for over 80 transnational corporations that are currently investing on water as the new 'blue gold' wherein it is already known that the coming wars won't be due to oil, but water - there are solutions to this indiscriminate privatization process, it begins with us becoming democratically active to propose these reforms at a constitutional level along with the necessary economic changes to ensure money/ profit is no longer the driving force to control water as a commodity, but instead make it available to all by virtue of being a vital liquid that all life requires to live. Why haven't we yet conducted this necessary and vital move?

All Life should have Equal Rights
2 years ago

Fascinating read, thanks for sharing this!

"...Water is not mentioned in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This means that we haven’t yet made of this vital liquid part of our unalienable human rights."

Yes - Water should be a Human Right and Equally available to All! All Life should have Equal Rights based on the fact that all are born into this world as life.
The current system does not regard the best interest of life and should thus be transformed from the root into something that exists to support life, not to exploit it.
