Of our considerations:

OUR RIGHT TO WATER IS OUR RIGHT TO LIFE!

It is said that humanity has reached a high level of development that allows the rights of peoples are guaranteed.

In the canton Muisne, Esmeraldas province, Ecuador, thousands of people lack access to safe drinking water. Although more than twice have given the resources, local authorities on duty have festinado and the national authorities have not sanctioned.

However indignation and claims the muisneño people to access a solution to this fundamental right is not given.

DRINKING WATER AND MUISNEÑAS¡ MUISNEÑOS

“This world has a serious social debt to the poor who have no access to clean water, because that is to deny the right to life established in their inalienable dignity. That debt is repaid in part by more financial contributions to provide clean water and sanitation to the poorest people “and” access to safe drinking water is a basic, fundamental and universal human right, because it determines the survival of the people, and therefore is a condition for the exercise of other human rights, “says the Pope in his encyclical Francisco Laudato Yes.

Muisne is one of Ecuador’s poorest cantons and cantonal head since its founding in 1956, lack of potable water, which violates the right to a decent life of 12,000 inhabitants who consume piped water, which causes serious problems in the quality of life children, women, youth who use this water of poor quality.
