Britain's development aid is being siphoned off for big business. Find out how taxpayers' money is funding the corporate takeover of the world's water – and hear from grassroots campaigners who are fighting back. The World Development Movement is hosting a series of talks by Ghanaian activists who are resisting the privatisation of their country's water supply.
From 16 - 22 March, you will be able to come and hear campaigners from Ghana who are leading the fight against water privatisation. Speakers will include:
- Rudolf Amenga-Etego of Ghana's National Coalition Against the Privatisation of Water
- Shirley Nibi Hawa, a community activist
They will be touring the country to explain the impact of water privatisation on their communities and telling you how you can help.
This is a rare opportunity to hear from a local perspective about the impact of failed water schemes. We hope that our speakers will inspire even more people to join the struggle against a corporate takeover of the world's water.
