Drinking water – a human right or not?
On 28th July 2010, access to clean water was recognised as a basic human right by the General Assembly of the United Nations. In spite of that more than 3.5 million people die every year because they only have access to dirty drinking water. Often their wells, which provide cleaner water, are drained dry by the food industry.
