DETROIT ACTIVIST TO SPEAK ON BOLIVIAN WATER CRISIS, PRIVATIZATION

The water struggle of the Bolivian people meets the water struggle we wage against Ice Mountain in Michigan: two culturally diverse peoples take on two multinational corporations to reclaim water in the public trust, not for sale.

Emily Posner, Detroit resident, returns to Michigan after 3 months of working and organizing on water issues in Cochabamba, Bolivia, where the Bolivian people were successful in stopping Bechtel and the World Bank from privatizing their water system.

Hear the story of how average citizens courageously took on the World Bank and won--and what this means for water struggles in Michigan and around the world.  The event is being hosted at the Traverse City Public Library, 610 Woodmere Ave. Cafe/Conversation at 6p.m., speakers at 7 p.m.  Contact Robert at (231) 228-5489 for more info. 

This event is being hosted by Sweetwater Alliance North. For more info, visit www.waterissweet.org
