Slovenia declares drinking water a basic human right in constitution




In the year 2013, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, the then CEO of Nestle angered many people when he stated that water is a market commodity and not a human right. Nestle had lead corporations in making water private.

Slovenia stood up against the Western governments who are agreeable to the idea. Slovenia believes that water is a human right, and a vote was made by 64 parliaments out of 90 seats to add an article to the Slovenia constitution stating that water is not a market commodity but a human right to be taken advantage by everyone. However, the Slovenian Democratic Party opposes to this vote, saying that there is no need to amend the constitution concerning water human rights.

Slovenia is the birthplace of First Lady Melania Trump, it has bountiful water resources and native forest. Slovenia is the world’s greenest destination the capital Ljubljana was recognized as the greenest European capital city.

Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar advocates having lawmakers approve the amendment of the constitution to cement the protection of water from exploitation.

US NASA scientist has gathered information that water will be an endangered commodity in the near future. The scientist said that by 2017 California will not have water anymore due to the drought. Other countries will experience loss of water as well due to mismanagement of the natural resources.
The media does not pay attention to the water drought issue, but Slovenia has taken the step to protect their water resources before hungry corporations take over and sell to the world fresh clean water that is supposed to be free for everyone.


Water resources are already threatened to be diminished and acquired by large corporations like Nestle. Slovenia is good to start protection.
