Surreal bureaucracy

I need to get the official text for a human right to water that the UN General Assembly approved on July 28.

But I can't find it on the UN website. They refer to a "text" here and here but don't provide it -- or a link!

This is surreal. ("Yes, you have rights. We just can't tell you what they are.")

Can anyone give me this top secret "text"? Thanks!

    and the voting record here (UNDPI press release):

  3. @Kate -- thanks. Now I see why it was hard to include the actual text :)
