Dr Eurig Scandrett will argue that Zionist settler colonialism in Palestine has used access to water as a mechanism for the expulsion of the Palestinian population.

“180,000 – 200,000 Palestinians living in rural communities have no access to running water … [they] have no choice but to purchase additional supplies from mobile water tankers at a much higher price.”
Amnesty International, Troubled Waters: Palestinians denied fair access to water.
