Take Action in Solidarity with El Salvador!
Tell Legislators in El Salvador NOT to privatize water!
As the threat of COVID-19 looms ever larger, it is imperative that Salvadoran legislators do everything possible to mitigate the potential impact that poor access to clean water will have on poor and rural communities in El Salvador. One thing they can do is move forward with the passage of a General Water Law.
After being stalled by right-wing legislators, El Salvador’s Environmental and Climate Change Commission is in the midst of debate about a water law that will define the future of water in the country. The right-wing has historically attempted to co-opt calls for a water law by pushing for a version that would allow corporations to control how water is managed and distributed.
Social movement leaders have outlined a series of NON-NEGOTIABLE demands that any law approved by the Commission must include. Help us uplift these demands by taking action today!
If you are a Salvadoran living in the exterior, please use this link to send an email to members of the Environmental and Climate Change Commission letting them know that you are paying attention to how they vote and are calling on them to listen to the population and approve the General Water Law.
