New advertising campaign taps into public support to keep water as a public good

A voluntary citizens' initiative against the privatisation of Greece's water companies has stepped up its campaign to hammer home the message that water is a public good, not a commodity, by launching its first in a series of TV and radio advertising spots.

Produced by Save Greek Water, this video (in Greek) shows four young people sitting at a seaside cafe. Calling the waitress over the bill, they nearly fall out of their chairs when they're told that the "four normal glasses of water and two specials" comes to €26.
