In Nicaragua, people are overwhelmingly opposed to water “privatization”. Yet the World Bank and IMF continue to pressure the Nicaraguan government to hand over this most precious resource to corporations. If the broken promises of better water quality, access and affordability in other countries which have privatized are not enough evidence, what of the failures that have already taken place after privatizing other Nicaraguan utilities? Hear what Nicaraguans have to say, as well as commentary from Vandana Shiva, Maude Barlow and more.
