Water As A Human Right, Even/Especially In Gaza

Abby Zimet

A great initiative in Gaza, where activist artists joined locals to create murals at the much-needed water treatment sites that Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) has installed at almost 30 schools. Other groups involved in the Maia Mural Brigade project - maia is Arabic for 'water' - include Break The Silence Mural and Arts Project and Olympia-Rafah Solidarity Mural Project. Pictures here and here. These kids need water; it's the least we can do.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
