The event is also part of Labour Party Conference's fringe events, so hopefully there will also be a few delegates around.
Details of the films to be shown:
Water First - Amy Hart, 2006 (25 mins)
Filmed in Malawi and South Africa, Water First explores the magnitude of the global water crisis and asks what we can do today to make sure that everyone everywhere has access to this basic necessity for life.
Water Justice - World Development Movement, 2005 (17 mins)
Water Justice critically examines case studies of water privatisation in Africa, Asia and South America. Water Justice challenges the existing trend towards privatisation while also looking at successful public models.
The World Development Movement (WDM) campaigns to tackle the root causes of poverty. Joining movements around the world, we win justice for the world’s poorest people. WDM believes that charity is not enough. With insightful analysis and creative action, we have brought important issues out of the shadows. We mobilise public pressure on governments and companies to change the policies that keep people poor. We are currently campaigning to rewrite global trade rules to put people before profit and pushing for poor country debt cancellation without harmful economic conditions.
