Media advisory - Council of Canadians to challenge Canada's position at UN advisory committee

    OTTAWA, June 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Anil Naidoo of the Council of Canadians'
Blue Planet Project will be in Berlin next week at the invitation of the UN
High Commissioner for Human Rights to serve on an expert panel advising her on
human rights obligations related to water. This process will culminate in a UN
report, which is expected to further isolate Canada as the only state to
officially oppose the right to water.


    As project organizer for Council of Canadians' Blue Planet Project, Anil
    Naidoo has played a leading role in coordinating the global water justice
    movement comprised of social justice groups and civil society
    organizations from around the world. He is the only Canadian on Louise
    Arbour's advisory panel on water and sanitation.


    June 4 - 6


    German Institute for Human Rights
    Berlin, Germany

    Anil Naidoo will be available for phone interviews.

    Founded by the Council of Canadians, the Blue Planet Project is a global
initiative bringing together partners from around the world working to achieve
water justice.
