    Nestle CEO: Water Is Not A Human Right, Should Be Privatized

    Nestle CEO: Water Is Not A Human Right, Should Be Privatized
    April 26, 2013

    Is water a free and basic human right, or should all the water on the planet belong to major corporations and be treated as a product? Should the poor who cannot afford to pay these said corporations suffer from starvation due to their lack of financial wealth? According to the former CEO and now Chairman of the largest food product manufacturer in the world, corporations should own every drop of water on the planet — and you’re not getting any unless you pay up....

    Start at 2:05 in the video to see it.

    Oh I beleive he said it even without watching. It's why homes are put on municipal water supply or should I say legally required. While you're at it you must be legally required to hook into the new sewer system the cities install.

    Nothing like being a water lord charging people by the gallon for that green grass. If it's free make it illegal and if it's legal put home and land developers on the city commission, they'll fix free for ya.

    Now sometimes it's for the best, many many other times it's an unneeded scheme\monopoly. While you're at it, will ya'll let us tax you to build us a new football stadium.

    Just sayin

    The water in question belongs to Canadians and in Canada corporations don't enjoy human rights. &*I%(&$%$W.b.(*^&* Nestle

    Anyone wondering how close to Frank Herbert's Dune things could become?

    Sigh.

    Nestle is a scary company indeed.

    No, idiot...if it falls out of the sky, it's free. Next you'll be wanting to charge for air.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    From your link:

    The way in which this sociopath clearly has zero regard for the human race outside of his own wealth and the development of Nestle, who has been caught funding attacks against GMO labeling, can be witnessed when watching and listening to his talk on the issue. This is a company that actually goes into struggling rural areas and extracts the groundwater for their bottled water products, completely destroying the water supply of the area without any compensation. In fact, they actually make rural areas in the United States foot the bill.

    As reported on by Corporate Watch, Nestle and former CEO Peter Brabeck-Letmathe have a long history of disregarding public health and abusing the environment to take part in the profit of an astounding $35 billion in annual profit from water bottle sales alone.

    Unbelievable...if the corp was really a person it would would be arrested!

    I think the 'trueactivist' political hit piece is pure rubbish.

    Brabeck's article totally contradicts what he said in that video. He's trying to unring the bell and make people think that's not what he meant. I think it's pretty clear by what he said that it's not being misinterpreted.

    Back in the eighties, IIRC, Nestle was sending people dressed like doctors and nurses into the poorer areas of Africa to convince women that Nestle formula was better for their children than breastmilk. That was a long, long time ago and a different CEO, but they've been dirty before.

    Nestle CEO is one sick bastage. He makes me want to puke chocolate.

    What next an air tax to make him richer?

    I hope this is spread across the world, people boycott his company and he is shunned and shame for the ******* he truly is, and kicked out of the company. Of course he has the money and has his paid trolls all over the internet trying desperately to defend what is really undefendable sicko point of view.

    Except for making money at the expense of human suffering nothing else bothers these greedy narcissistic a-holes as their true nature shown to the world. Instead of his smiling face on a magazine as CEO of the year or such, I hope his smiling face is shown as one pathetic, greedy, selfish pizz poor excuse for a human being.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    That is so funny Show Me - Nestle and other like minded corporations will be sure to write a clause absolving themselves of water damage should such ownership ever come about, which I highly doubt.

    No more Nestle products in this household!
