From Silos to A Pan-African Front: The Africa Water Justice Network, Uniting Water Commoning Struggles Against Capital
Millions on the African continent do not have access to clean drinking water. The current state can be traced back to Africa’s colonial past, when water was claimed and used for colonial economic projects only, with access for social uses restricted based on race and class. This legacy continues today, as water resources are being privatized by corporations that create artificial scarcity through unequal distribution. The Africa Water Justice Network (AWJN) emerged to unite like-minded movements across the continent, at both national and local levels, in order to achieve common ownership of water resources.
