Water is our most essential public resource, and it is vital that it be managed by public utilities for the public interest, not private profit. The World Bank continues to promote and fund water privatization despite the failure of this model around the globe.

Stand with the people of Nagpur today and tell the World Bank to stop pushing its dangerous water privatization schemes.

  • At an event it calls McTeachers Nights, McDonald’s has teachers “work” behind the counter of a local store and sell burgers, fries, and shakes to their own students. The burger giant uses these events to market its junk food to impressionable young students -- children the corporation hopes to turn into lifelong customers of its junk food brand.

    Enough is enough. Tell McDonald’s to leave our schools -- and our children -- alone, and stop McTeacher’s Nights!

     
  • In the Philippines, where tobacco use kills 10 people every hour, Big Tobacco sits on the committee that implements tobacco control policies. This is an atrocious conflict of interest and the biggest impediment to realizing the lifesaving potential of the global tobacco treaty in the country.

    Sign the petition below to encourage Members of the Philippine Congress to support a bill that removes this tobacco industry representative from the national tobacco control committee.

     
  • The World Bank has spent decades setting the stage for water privatization in Lagos, Nigeria, and now it's backing a bogus “stakeholder engagement process.” Instead of listening to what residents of Lagos want, it's trying to convince communities that privatization is the answer, bypassing the democratic process to benefit water corporations.

    Send a message to World Bank leaders right now and tell them to listen to Lagos and stop the privatization of Lagos' water.

     
  • The House of Representatives just passed an amendment to an appropriations bill that would forbid the National Park Service from spending money to implement bottled-water-free policies. The Senate will consider National Park Service funding soon, and the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) is already calling on senators to follows the House's bad example.

     
  • British American Tobacco has been implicated in conducting illegal activities in Africa. A documentary by the BBC revealed that BAT engaged in corporate espionage and bribed politicians and policymakers in the name of buying political influence and undermining tobacco control policies.
