What if you lived by the largest body of fresh water in the world but could no longer afford to use it? Residents of Highland Park, Michigan – known as the birthplace of the auto industry – have received water bills as high as $10,000. They have had their water turned off, their homes foreclosed and their children taken away by social services.
Now they are struggling to keep water, a basic human right, from becoming privatized!
