In twelve countries successful

(17 July 2013) News Splash n°20: With only seven weeks left to go, our European Citizens’ Initiative has collected over 1.7 Million signatures and we have achieved success in twelve countries. Greece, Italy and Spain have joined the list of countries where we campaign successfully. The latest figures by country and the minimum number of signatures required per country can be seen on our website: .

We have passed the threshold in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Slovenia, Slovakia, Lithuania, Finland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Greece, Spain and Italy. We hope that other countries will follow! The goal is 2 Million signatures by 9 September. Please continue to promote the ECI “Water is a human right!” among your friends and colleagues, at places where people meet and through social media. By collecting more signatures, we can put more  pressure on the European Commission to get our proposals turned in European legislation. Each signature counts.

Water and sanitation are a human right! Water is a public good, not a commodity! Many millions of people continue to be deprived of clean, safe and affordable water and sanitation, even in Europe. The European Commission can do something about it, but WE have to put it on their agenda.
