Lyrics

Well I think its fine, building jumbo planes.
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train.
Switch on summer from a slot machine.
Yes, get what you want to if you want, cause you can get anything.

I know weve come a long way,
Were changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass.
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas.
And you make them long, and you make them tough.
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you cant get off.

Oh, I know weve come a long way,
Were changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well youve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air.
But will you keep on building higher
til theres no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?

I know weve come a long way,
Were changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

cOlOmbIA hAs A rIch sUpply Of hydrOlOgIc rEsOUrsEs

“Colombia has a rich supply of hydrologic resources including average annual rain fall levels more than three times greater than the global average and almost twice as great as the average for South America. However, according to the World Health Organization, the municipalities that control the water supply process suffer from weak management that has resulted in both high water loss rates during the distribution phase (due to leaking, etc…) and a progressive decline in water quality; this situation is aggravated by subsidies water rates that do not accurately represent real costs. Untreated effluents also present a problem. Like other countries in the region, Colombia has recently privatized its water supply in certain regions and the continued debate over water privatization will have a profound effect on Colombia’s future with regards to water resource management.” (OAS)

“Colombia tiene una abundante provisión de recursos hídricos incluyendo la tasa anual promedio de lluvias tres veces mayor que la global y la mayor de Suramérica. Sin embargo, de acuerdo con la Organización Mundial de la Salud, las municipalidades que manejan el servicio de provisión del servicio adolecen de falencias administrativas que derivan en altas pérdidas durante la fase de distribución (filtraciones entre otras) y una progresiva declinación en la calidad del agua. Esta situación se agrava debido a que los subsidios no cubren los costos reales. Fuentes inadecuadamente gestionadas, también representan un problema. Al igual que otros países de la región, Colombia ha privatizado la prestación del servicio en varias regiones y el debate sobre la privatización del servicio tendrá un profundo efecto en consideración a la gestión del servicio del agua potable.” (OEA)

20.000 dead children In Colombia on 2007-2008
-In spAnIsh-

“El procurador general de la Nación, Edgardo José Maya Villazón, dijo que en el más reciente estudio sobre agua potable y saneamiento básico, 20 mil niños murieron por consumir agua contaminada. Explicó que varias de estas muertes pudieron ser evitadas si se hubiera cumplido con los derechos a la salud y se hubiera prestado la atención debida a la mortalidad infantil. Agregó que la situación puede ser más complicada ya que en la actualidad 13 millones de colombianos no tienen acceso al agua potable.

Así mismo, Maya Villazón dijo que en la región pacífica niños entre los 3 a 5 años no tienen acceso a la educación, sobre todo en la primera etapa donde inicia su formación.

Este panorama lo entregó el procurador en desarrollo del encuentro con los 32 jefes de planeación del país, a los cuales llamó la atención para que tomen determinaciones inmediatas y apropien los recursos necesarios para brindar una atención oportuna a los niños, niñas y adolescentes.

Finalmente advirtió que vigilará la inversión de 4 billones de pesos que dejaron los salientes gobernadores y alcaldes e inspeccionará, a partir del primero de julio, los planes de desarrollo de los entrantes funcionarios para verificar si se cumplió con la destinación de dineros para la infancia.”
