The current Chairman and former CEO of Nestlé, the largest producer of food products in the world, believes that the answer to global water issues is privatization. This statement is on record from the wonderful company that has peddled junk food in the Amazon, has invested money to thwart the labeling of GMO-filled products, has a disturbing health and ethics record for its infant formula, and has deployed a cyber army to monitor Internet criticism and shape discussions in social media.
This is apparently the company we should trust to manage our water, despite the record of large bottling companies like Nestlé having a track record of creating shortages:
Large multinational beverage companies are usually given water-well privileges (and even tax breaks) over citizens because they create jobs, which is apparently more important to the local governments than water rights to other taxpaying citizens. These companies such as Coca Cola and Nestlé (which bottles suburban Michigan well-water and calls it Poland Spring) suck up millions of gallons of water, leaving the public to suffer with any shortages.

But Chairman, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, believes that “access to water is not a public right.” Nor is it a human right. So if privatization is the answer, is this the company in which the public should place its trust?
Here is just one example, among many, of his company’s concern for the public thus far:

In the small Pakistani community of Bhati Dilwan, a former village councilor says children are being sickened by filthy water. Who’s to blame? He says it’s bottled water-maker Nestlé, which dug a deep well that is depriving locals of potable water. “The water is not only very dirty, but the water level sank from 100 to 300 to 400 feet,” Dilwan says. (source)
Why? Because if the community had fresh water piped in, it would deprive Nestlé of its lucrative market in water bottled under the Pure Life brand.
In the subtitled video below, from several years back, Brabeck discusses his views on water, as well as some interesting comments concerning his view of Nature — that it is “pitiless” — and, of course, the obligatory statement that organic food is bad and GM is great. In fact, according to Brabeck, you are essentially an extremist to hold views opposite to his own. His statements are important to review as we continue to see the world around us become reshaped into a moremechanized environment in order to stave off that pitiless Nature to which he refers.
The conclusion to this segment is perhaps the most revealing about Brabeck’s worldview, as he highlights a clip of one of his factory operations. Evidently, the savior-like role of the Nestlé Group in ensuring the health of the global population should be graciously welcomed. Are you convinced?

  1. If an individual has a right to resource, like water, then other individuals have an obligation to provide that resource. Who is obligated to provide water to the folks who have a right to it?

  2. If you want water, dig a fucking hole. Bottled water is no more pure than those who peddle it....

  3. Nestle, do us a favour and go bankrupt!!!! YOU and others like you do not deserve the right to be around! you are steeling, depriving and killing the people of this earth and nature itself!!!!! DIE!!!!!

  4. It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant and classless so many mindless people are. Nestle is just one in a conglomeration of companies that are stealing the basic necessities that humanity needs to survive. THE biggest offender is Monsanto. I just wonder how bad things are going to have to get before the citizens of this enslaved country decide to stand up and take their country back from the politicians and corporations that are destroying it? Words without action don't mean a thing. I could say I won't buy nestle anymore, but I am sure all the other bottled water companies share this same philosophy, and that is just down right disgusting.

  5. Hi friends, how is the whole thing, and what you
