[Michigan, Mar. 21, 2022]: The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) urges participation in the Water Board’s Coalition series of events in the Greater Detroit area defending people’s right to water.
Water is a blessing and a precious gift from God and a social good and is essential to all living things. Water is the essence of life. Water is the source of life and water is equal to life itself.
Water is indispensable. It is not a fungible good. If price of oranges goes up, one substitutes with another fruit. What do we substitute water with? It is an essential good for life to continue. Water is not a luxury.
Shutting off water to low-income families is not only disgraceful but a violation of human rights according to the United Nations. The United Nations Resolution 64/292 recognizes the human right to water.
The voices of the vulnerable residents who are struggling for access to drinking water, water to bathe in and flush toilets with, are ignored. We must put pressure on state and city governments to put an end to water shutoffs, develop and enforce a water affordability plan and make clean water accessible to all people.
