On-line Event on Right to Water

Just got a note from the Canadian Water Network about an online event happening today at 2pm in the Eastern time zone. Here's their press release:

CWN Virtual Event: Protecting the Human Right to Water
Published: Feb 26, 2014
Protecting the Human Right to Water
Emma Lui - Council of Canadians
March 11, 2014, 2pm EST
All Virtual Events are free. Join the conversation!
RSVP by email to virtualevents@cwn-rce.ca.
Canadian and indigenous communities are facing increasing threats to their water sources including the threat of fracking, water privatization, oil shipments on the Great Lakes and the lack of clean drinking water in First Nation communities. Learn what communities are doing to protect the human right to water and how they’re turning their municipalities into Blue Communities. A Blue Community is a municipality that recognizes the human right to water, promotes public water and wastewater services and bans bottled water at municipal facilities and at municipal events. Emma Lui, National Water Campaigner for the Council of Canadians, will lead a discussion on current threats to our water sources and how community members are taking up the challenge to protect their drinking water.
