Water supplies and sewage treatment is being taken over by corporations in terrifying ways. Last week, Governor Christie of New Jersey signed legislation that eliminated public voting to authorize selling water systems to corporations. Portland, Oregon’s water system was acquired using fear tactics and a mysteriously compliant water commission. This is occurring across the country as artificially tax-starved communities and Federal regulations written by corporations are forcing fire sales of public assets. The ultimate result is a greater cost and fewer services for taxpayers. It is as if our discretionary spending has been exhausted and now they’re coming after our basic needs. When will it end? Listen to three people tell us how it’s done, what happened in Portland, and how we must fight against these takeovers.
