The Nation Weekly: August 12, 2022 The fight against water privatization, AIPAC vs. democracy, and more

The Nation

In the US, only 10 percent of people get their water from private companies, and only three out of 100 rely on private companies for wastewater treatment. But in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the states where pro-privatization legislation has been most aggressively pursued, about a third of the population get their water from private companies.

In this reported feature by Hadas Thier, we take a trip to Towamencin, PA, to see how residents there are uniting across political lines to battle corporations attempting to privatize their water systems.
