Discussion on Water Privatization at the Bloom Collective 4/26

April 24, 2011

The Bloom Collective is hosting a discussion on water privatization since Grand Rapids has been seriously considering this move in the past 6 months.

We have reported in several previous postings about the ongoing discussion of privatizing the water/sewage system in Grand Rapids. Last fall there was an initial report where the Mayor of Grand Rapids first suggested water privatization.

In February there was another report that the City had already met with two French multi-nationals about water privatization, with one of them being Veolia, a company that is the target of the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against the repressive policies of the State of Israel.

The Bloom Collective plans on providing information on this issue along with facilitating discussion on the consequences of water privatization and ways to resist such actions.
