Statement in solidarity with the migrant workers of Lepe. For the Human Right to Water!

Red Andaluza de la Nueva Cultura del Agua (in which WAPONET members participate) and Red Agua Pública-Marea Azul del Sur express through this statement their support for the migrant seasonal workers of Huelva camps, people who work from sun to sun generating a great wealth in this land, but who nonetheless lack of decent minimum living conditions.
