The Social Solidarity clinic of Peristeri decided to issue & support the following resolution for the non privatization of water in Greece :
– Access to water and sanitation is a human right recognized by the United Nations (resolution of 108 plenary meeting July 28, 2010 , Press Release: United Nations General Assembly A/RES/64/292 Distr.: General 3 August 2010 64th meeting 48 09-47935)
– Considering the access to clean drinking water, adequate irrigation water and sanitation for citizens a basic and fundamental human right, and sharing European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) position against the privatization of water resources, we strongly oppose the attempt of privatization of water companies ( EYATH, EYDAP or any other municipal water services. )
– The operators of water services and water & sanitation companies should be excluded from the policy of privatization of public entities and continue to remain under public and social control in order to ensure the protection of water resources and the environment, and water as a common good.
– We express our deep concerns on how the basic living & health conditions of citizens will be secured since we do not consider that privatization of water & sanitation services is a procedure in favor of the public interest.
