Question: Is water a right or a privilege?


(from left to right)

“Water should be a right and everyone should have equal access to water resources, but not in excessive amounts.”
Sasha Calder
Second-year, Cowell

“Obviously it should be a right, because we need water to live.”
Anthony Moreno
Third-year, College Eight

“A right that everyone should have and a privilege that I’m lucky enough to have.”
Christopher Knight
Third-year, Porter

“It depends. On campus, it is a right because we’re locked into a system. In other circumstances you have more control, so it is a privilege.”
