KIVA, UCEN, 5:00-7:30 PM
This film is examining water conflicts on three continents. "Thirst" shows that popular opposition to the privatization of water sparks remarkable coalitions that cross partisan lines. When it comes to water, many people demand local control and fear the arrival of multinational corporations with large lobbying budgets and little local loyalty.  This film is co-sponsored by the UM-Flint International Student Organization and Kettering University’s Model U.N. Club.
