the counter-events organized by the Turkish and
international resistance movement to water privatization and
large dams. They are working to the production of a new
film-documentary on the European water business in the
middle-east . To this aim they are also going to South-east
Anatolia to document the dams projects in that area and to

THE WATER WARS ARE ALREADY HERE
Right now the greed for profits moves transnational corporations to extend control over the world’s water – a resource that is vital to the survival of humanity.
At the same time, a movement against water privatization is growing all over in the world, raising against the centers of power: the world water council and the world water forum.
During 4th world water forum in mexico city in 2006, protests against water privatization assumed a global dimension for the first time.
In the demonstrations and in the prayers for water – the right of every living being – there was a common goal: to make sure it never becomes a commodity.
Next world water forum will be organized in Istanbul, in march 2009. It will be the case of a reform or of a boycott?
