Local peace advocates screen film on water rights

The Peninsula/Palo Alto branch of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom has scheduled a screening of the documentary “Thirsty for Justice: The Struggle for the Human Right to Water” 5-7 p.m. Saturday in the Garden Room of the Los Altos main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road.

According to the event organizers, in the richest nation on Earth and the wealthiest state in the nation, many people lack access to safe affordable water. The 2014 documentary shares stories of those who have suffered from such an assault on their health and dignity, and chronicles a grassroots movement that made the human right to water the law of the land in California.

Information tables will display local environmental groups’ projects. Door prizes will include a tree planted in the attendee’s name by the Arbor Day Foundation. No food is allowed in the Garden Room, but snacks will be available at a kiosk outside the room until 5 p.m. Tea, coffee and water will be served.

The screening is co-sponsored by the Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

Admission is free and open to all.
