Description: Thousands participated in the peoples’ march against the 4th World Water Forum The 4th World Water Forum held from 16-20 March 2006 in Mexico City culminated in an appeal to governments, published by non-governmental organizations from four continents that called for concrete action to implement the right to water for all, as well as steps to counter multinational corporations’ interference. At their alternative events and protest actions, NGOs and social movements in Mexico City repeatedly pointed to the lack of legitimacy of the World Water Forum. The Forum meets every three years, and is regarded as the most important world gathering on the topic of water. The World Water Council, which organizes the Forum, is comprised of governments, development organizations, banks and corporations, as well as research institutes and a few NGOs; it is dominated by the private sector.
