Should public water be privatized?

What does the privatization of public water systems mean for citizens and who is fighting back? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the growing trend to privatize the country's water. Private companies are increasingly moving in to take over the operation of municipal waters systems by operating and profiting from reservoirs and other water-storage projects. Who is pushing for privatization? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at How are communities fighting back? It's Your Call with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.
