Will the global community define water as a human right, available to all, or as a commodity to be bought, sold, traded, and ultimately out of reach from the poorest people on this earth? Liz Marshall's documentary, Water on the Table, explores this question through a portrait of Maude Barlow and her tireless efforts to define water as a human right.
Maude Barlow, author of Blue Future: Protecting Water and People Forever, is interviewed by Paul Moist, CUPE National President. This talk was the organized by Octopus Books as the Ottawa stop on her book tour and was filmed at Centretown United Church on October 1, 2013 by rabbletv.
Please join rabble.ca and the Council of Canadians’ NWT Chapter for a thought-provoking evening with Council of Canadians’ National Chairperson Maude Barlow, one of the world’s foremost experts on water, as she launches: Blue Future: Protecting Water for People and the Planet Forever.
