The NGO Greenpeace held a ceremony in the Brazilian city center to raise awareness about the water crisis hitting the Southeast

This morning in the center of the Brazilian city, the association that defends environmental issues worldwide, conducted a campaign of protest against the lack of water flowing through the Southeast. The ceremony was held in the cathedral square of Sao Paulo, demanding measures to help address the water crisis affecting the region. During the action of Greenpeace, water bottles symbolizing the last drops Cantareira System were distributed. Fabiana Alves, coordinator of the campaign, explained the problem which has one of the largest cities in South America: "Now the water is treated as a commodity and not a right and that's why we launched this propaganda, showing that they are the last drops of our reservoir Cantareira ". Remember that it is the worst drought in southeastern Brazil in 80 years and has already left millions of residents without water for up to several days.
