Water: ¿Human Right or Asset?

Equal Water for ALLThe ongoing debate upon this question comes from a single assessment:

Water as a Human Right is part of the Mexican Constitution as a guaranteed right that everyone should have access to – though there are people certainly not being benefitted with potable water service and some others have a low quality service.

Private investments are now trying to take over the governmental administration of water which would then convert water into an asset instead of being managed as part of the basic needs and services that every human being in this planet should have access to as a human right.

-The reason why the consideration of water as an asset is being discuss relies on the fact that people do not care or appreciate that which is readily given without having to pay for it – thus there is a great amount of waste and squandering in its consumption.

– -The ‘Waste’ Factor is now being used as a way to implement water fees that have already doubled up in the past year. Certainly, humans have proven to only react when one is forced to pay a considerable amount for it.

Water: Is it a Right or an Asset

– quoting from the manager of Mexico City’s Water System Ramón Aguirre:

“If it’s used for industries, it’s an asset – if it’s used at restaurants, it’s an asset, if it’s used for brushing your teeth, it’s a right – but if you leave the water tap open, it’s an asset’

Within this statement we can see and understand that humans can only appreciate that which they have to pay for

Some other congress men are claiming that water is necessary for human life and that it cannot be converted into an asset due to the pertinent question on ‘what will happen with those that can’t afford paying for it?’

Another angle within this problem is that Money is required to maintain the service that keeps it accessible for most. Hence the current attempts of private investment to become the managers of one of life’s most important resources.

— some others keep claiming: “

If you don’t pay for it, you don’t care about wasting it’

Which is the starting point of egotism and separation through the words not lived and a social conditioning of no one actually taking self responsibility to consider  how we can create Water into an All-Inclusive human right WHILE learning how to effectively look at our lessons to have threat

Thus, what do we require ?

An Equal Money System that implies Equal Rights for All to have access to basic services that are required for a dignified living. This entails water which has been wasted and squandered as there’s no actual education with regards to basic common sense required about the Earths resources, the animals and the breathing point that requires every human being drinking water no matter what.

-To understand that for us to be able to open our tap and get water, a long process as taken which we often take for granted.

The same can be applied to electricity, sewage systems, the dump, water systems – basically all aspects that enable life on Earth live in a more simple and efficient manner.

The point that’s being discussed is the fact that there is a lot of carelessness with regards to the use of water – there is no proper education on how to use it, when to use it as well as seeing that it is necessary to go placing every water-user into context of what is going on in the world to start creating a level of self awareness that can eventually lead to the consideration and the impact we have upon words, upon people which we then must guide by the principle of what’s best for all within the use of water for what’s required to be used for becoming aware of the chemicals we put into it, becoming aware of ways that we see we are depending solely on Money and realizing that such self support through money can be easily created – thus it is challenging to each one’s personal interests – which is yes in essence  ‘caring’ less until it  we as a collective finally Stand Up and realize that we all require same thus we support each other as one within our everyday actions..

Education is the KEY to start of creating a better world through our own actions and that implies a careful use of water and natural resources. This implies the ‘water problem’ is also part of this entire monopoly-growth type of advancement taken on by few individuals that create the laws of water and the distribution thereof to their own benefit – example is to see what has happened in telecom industries – all was intricately intertwined to function better.  Water is a Human Right and part of our responsibility is becoming aware of how to use it properly without wasting within the consideration at all times of people requiring Water to Live.

Join us to walk through the practical application and implementation of equality through and As the Equal Money System.

Equal Money for ALl – Common sense

    Big Win in Mexico on the Human Right to Water

    By Claudia Campero, Water Campaigner for Food & Water Watch and Blue Planet Project in Mexico

    The right to water and a healthy environment in the Mexican Constitution passed yesterday (September 29) in the plenary of the Senate!

    Now we need to follow-up the votes in the state legislative bodies. Once the majority of them pass the initiative, the change will be published and will be officially part of the Mexican Constitution!

    We are so excited that these rights will finally be acknowledged in our Constitution and we are now strategizing to make this acknowledgement a reality in people’s lives.

    There will be plenty of work in the next several months to make sure the Water Law is amended to reflect this change, but today we celebrate!

    This is a major WIN for many Mexican organizations, the Coalición de Organizaciones Mexicanas por el Derecho al Agua among them. However, it is also thanks to the support of the international water movement that we have accomplished this major achievement.
