Grassroots Movement Blocks Water Privatization in Mexico

The ruling party (PRI) and its allies, the National Action Party (PAN), the Partido Verde and New Alliance, were forced to back down in the Chamber of Deputies. The privatization offensive launched this time against water, will have to wait for another day—preferably for its promoters, not around elections. The procedure to rule on the proposed General Water Act, scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, was deferred indefinitely. A news report recorded the aggressive response of PRI deputy Manlio Fabio Beltrones, who bared his disappointment in no uncertain terms.

Fraud? Chris Christie Privatizes New Jersey’s Water
0
0
(Lucas Ropek) Last month, Chris Christie sold off New Jersey’s public water supply to a bunch of corporations. The Water Infrastructure Protection Act (WIPA), approved on February 5th, allows municipalities to sell their water facilities to private companies without public referendum.

As part of Christie’s privatization task force agenda, WIPA aims to balance Jersey’s current budget crisis, while also fixing the state’s water facilities that ail from “emergent conditions,” or what the bill calls “serious risks to the integrity of drinking water and the environment.” The Protection Act has alarmed New Jersey communities and watchdog groups, however, who claim, as activist Jim Walsh has said, the bill allows “multinational corporations to profit off increased water rates with virtually no recourse for New Jersey residents.’’

WATCH: Jon Stewart Nails Chris Christie's 'Comfort with Corruption' - It turns out the everyman NJ Gov has a a taste for the high life. "Chris Christie is the luckiest man alive," Jon Stewart said on his show last night. Why? Because Christie just happened to have signed an executive order allowing the governor of New Jersey to have his travel expenses paid for by foreign governments, and lo and behold, Christie just took a trip to London on the King of Jordan's dime. "What a coincidence!" Stewart quipped. What are the chances?
