Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman talked about the book they wrote with Michael Fox, Thirst: Fighting the Corporate Theft of Our Water, published by Jossey-Bass. The book is based on the documentary film by Deborah Kaufman and Alan Snitow that chronicled attempts by private corporations to take over public waterworks. The authors argued that profit-seeking companies increase rates and encourage wasteful use of water. They answered questions from members of the audience.

Sylvia Kothe spoke from the audience about the fight against the privitization of the Stockton, California, public water system. The event was co-sponsored by Food and Water Watch and Concerned Citizens Coalition of Stockton. close
