10 Year Anniversary of Bolivia Beating Bechtel

Bolivians are celebrating the 10 year anniversaryof defeating multi-national giant Bechtel’sattempt to privatize the country’s water. The fight for water rights brought the entire nation together across class and cultural boundaries to defeat the dragon. But now the solidarity is fractured. The work of managing the water system is a huge challenge that Bolivia is struggling to meet. Defeating the enemy is just the start.

There will be many steps before humanity is able to end our addiction to consumption and live harmoniously with our environment and one another. As Bolivia celebrates one victory they are taking a huge leadership step towards another one by initiating a space for the world’s people to define our roles and responsibilities to this planet. What victories are you celebrating in the move towards sustainable living and what larger goals are you reaching for as we move towards 2020?
