EU Water Initiative Collects More Than 1 Million Signatures

A group that wants to prevent the privatization of water in the European Union and keep water services in the public sector said its petition has surpassed 1 million signatures.

“Water is a Human Right,” a group run mainly by trade unions that wants water services to remain accessible to all in public hands, collected 1.05 million signatures and seeks to double that by September, the group’s website showed.

Petitioners must collect at least 1 million signatures from seven of the EU’s 27 member states in order to call on the commission to draft formal legislation. Most of the signatures in January came from Germany and Austria, the group said.
