Rochester Sierra Club Tackles Water Privatization Issue

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!
