Is access to water a human right? According to the United Nations it now is. And yet more than a billion people still go without a safe regular supply. But it is one thing to recognise a right, quite another to apply it to poor communities who cannot afford to pay the bills. The United Nations World Health Organization wants governments to take responsibility to guarantee their people affordable water. As Changing Currents counts down to the 3rd World Water Forum in Japan, Earth Report visits Bolivia and the USA to find out why people are taking to the streets to claim their rights.
