War in the EU on Water Privatization

It is the privatization of water to be now in the EU viewfinder. This happened especially in Greece where attempts have been made to leverage the precarious economic situation that the country is experiencing to impose the liberalization of municipal water services in exchange for the anti-crisis aid package. Yet the same Community legislation on services sanctions the principle of non-interference in national water management modes. Italy still resists, as long as it does not have to ask for EU aid.
