The WSCF global advocacy campaign launched the Water Justice Campaign on the World Water Day and invited the SCMs to observe the Universal Day of Prayers for Students (UDPS) on the theme Water Justice. The Advocacy and Solidarity Committee encouraged the SCMs to do campaign for Water Justice in their own communities.
The SCMers in AP region have focused on the following concerns during the campaign:
- WATER is a Human Right (to highlight water as fundamental need and human right)
- We Thirst for JUSTICE! Water is a Right! (to stress scarcity of water/privatization)
- Giant DAMs = Environment Damage (to connect on dam/water privatization, environment degradation and displacement of people)
- Peoples/Public Control NOT Corporate Control on Water!
The Human Rights Justice and Peace Committee of WSCF Asia-Pacific region have prepared a resource material on Water Justice Campaign for the SCMs. This was also an act to join hands with the global advocacy campaign in 2011 in regards to water and what it means for us as Christian students. The resource materials is a compilation of Introduction to the Water Campaign, Water and Human Rights, MDGs, Theological understanding and reflections, stories from young people from AP region, and call to action.
