Thirst : fighting the corporate theft of our water by Alan Snitow( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Out of sight of most Americans, global corporations like Nestle, Suez, and Veolia are rapidly buying up our local water sources lakes, streams, and springs and taking control of public water services. In their drive to privatize and commodify water, they have manipulated and bought politicians, clinched backroom deals, and subverted the democratic process by trying to deny citizens a voice in fundamental decisions about their most essential public resource. The authors' PBS documentary Thirst showed how communities around the world are resisting the privatization and commodification of water. Thirst, the book, picks up where the documentary left off, revealing the emergence of controversial new water wars in the United States and showing how communities here are fighting this battle, often against companies headquartered overseas

The film chronicles a tumultuous year in the lives of two young activists grappling with rapid social change and the meaning of globalization on their own doorsteps.

Raj Jayadev is a temporary worker who confronts the hype of Silicon Valley by revealing the reality of an unseen and unacknowledged army of immigrant workers.

Ezekiel's wheels a poem and reading( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Poet Shirley Kaufman gives a tour-de-force reading of her new work ... The poem, a contemplation of loss, longing, and the nature of true seeing, was inspired by her experience of losing her sight. Emerging from eye surgery, Kaufman had visions like those of the exiled Biblical prophet Ezekiel. Apocalyptic fires in the sky, wheels within wheels, and a valley of bones are encountered on a journey that leads from destruction towards revelation."
