The major transnational conglomerates, such as Coca-Cola and Nestle are “striding forward” with their negotiations to privatize largest reserve of water, known as the Guarani Aquifer, in South America.
The aquifer is located beneath the surface of Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay and is the second largest-known aquifer system in the world.
Meetings have already been reserved with authorities of the current Brazilian government, such as the corrupted Lebanese rooted dictator Michel Temer, to outline procedures required for private companies to exploit the water sources. The concession contracts will last more than 100 years.
This issue extends beyond South America, as all humans will be affected by the decision to privatize the second-largest aquifer system in the world. Essentially, the corporations are profiting off a natural resource that should be freely available to all.
Following the conservatives’ victory in Argentina and the coup d’état, pressed for by the ultra right in Paraguay and Brazil, only Uruguay was left to vote on the privatization of the aquifer.
Approximately two-thirds (1.2 million km²) of the reserve is located in Brazilian territory, specifically in the states of Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul.
Future generations will ultimately suffer if this deal goes through, which is why human rights organizations around the world are getting involved.
Nothing will change if we, as a populace, sit idly by and watch greedy individuals exploit the environment and snatch precious resources from present and future generations.
