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!

I may have this text. I will look in a few days.

I found the text here:

and the voting record here (UNDPI press release):

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