water tanks and #injustice ?

Years back, on a tour of NYC with a gaggle of 9th graders (what WAS I thinking?), I learned that old apartment buildings in the city have water tanks on their roofs so that gravity boosts water pressure.

 
Last night as the ‘call to prayer’ blared over Bethlehem, I glanced down this street I was walking past from supper. I grabbed the shot because of the water tanks. See ’em.

They are not for water pressure.

They are the reserve water supply.

So that when the government turns off the water in summer to divert it to other places, these Palestinians will have some water.
