Water, that most precious and public commodity, is being ruthlessly and irresponsibly depleted worldwide by industry and big corporations. Formerly green landscapes dry up and become deserts by wasting water for the food production industry. Toxic substances poison the groundwater and the environment. Big companies even purchase the exclusive right to water sources. Fewer and fewer people in the world have clean drinking water. The UN has predicted this to occur on a drastic scale. The depletion of the global water resources is the theme of the video “breathe” by Ria Gerth.
