  •  I think the idea is that (0+ / 0-)

    anyone that stands in the way of a person getting clean water would be liable for some kind of penalty.

    Water polluters, perhaps, or people upstream who dry up the river and drought out the downstream folk.  

    Corporations that 'corner' the water supply and refuse to share.

    Like all the other legislation for human rights, nice to have on paper, hell to put into practice.

    •  Sure, but (0+ / 0-)

      What if those "upstream people" are only using a subsistence level themselves?  Should they be forced to go without?

      Those who support banning cocaine are no better than those who support banning cheeseburgers
