On Saturday March 17, an estimated 5,000 people marched for water justice on the streets of Marseille, France. With this as the background, Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow was interviewed about the World Water Forum and the history of the alternative water forums that have challenged the corporate-controlled ‘official forum’.
