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

| |

Top Tier Gear USA


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.

The company notorious for sending out hordes of ‘internet warriors’ to defend the company and its actions online in comments and message boards (perhaps we’ll find some below) even takes a firm stance behind Monsanto’s GMOs and their ‘proven safety’. In fact, the former Nestle CEO actually says that his idea of water privatization is very similar to Monsanto’s GMOs. In a video interview, Nestle Chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe states that there has never been ‘one illness’ ever caused from the consumption of GMOs.

Watch the video below for yourself:

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. The report states:

“Nestlé production of mineral water involves the abuse of vulnerable water resources. In the Serra da Mantiqueira region of Brazil, home to the “circuit of waters” park whose groundwater has a high mineral content and medicinal properties, over-pumping has resulted in depletion and long-term damage.”

Nestle has also come under fire over the assertion that they are actually conducting business with massive slavery rings. Another Corporate Watch entry details:

“In 2001, Nestlé faced criticism for buying cocoa from the Ivory Coast and Ghana, which may have been produced using child slaves.[58] According to an investigative report by the BBC, hundreds of thousands of children in Mali, Burkina Faso and Togo were being purchased from their destitute parents and shipped to the Ivory Coast, to be sold as slaves to cocoa farms.”

So is water a human right, or should it be owned by big corporations? Well, if water is not here for all of us, then perhaps air should be owned by major corporations as well. And as for crops, Monsanto is already working hard to make sure their monopoly on our staple crops and beyond is well situated. It should really come as no surprise that this Nestle Chairman fights to keep Monsanto’s GMOs alive and well in the food supply, as his ideology lines right up with that of Monsanto.

      Got that right.

    • NMBC

      Yes, it has more than enough to go around. WATER has been the #1 abundant resource for many million of years until plutocrats wanted to control the whole world.
      GMO and Nestle are two different and separate entities.
      One in high-tech to produce more crops, and the other corp. to produce sugary products.
      So former Nestle CEO Peter Brabeck-Letmathe endorsed GMO without its knowledge.
      Well, if someone wants to use this guy to connect to GMO, then GMO has a problem; however, I don’t think GMO is not aware of it.
      Water should be free, it’s a basic element to life. 🙂

      • NMBC

        You know it’s difficult to stop this madness, and I believe GMO is not aware of someone is trying to connect this bad guy with their products. Mass global media outlets and blog sites are very active and they all sing the same tune (24/7/365); except the part about blaming the US or the UK citizens (but not the REAL CULPRITS) for everything that went wrong in this world.
        As the article said:
        “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.”

Reading these non-mainstream sites – it truly does sound like a bunch of upper/top dogs need to taken out! Why wait for a revolution – start one!!!!

  • The UN labels water as a need, not a right. That is so corporations can justify spending millions and creating debt for water projects. So what gives gov the right to say we do not own ours and a utility can take it. Just wondering.

    • Jean

      Maybe we dont’ even own oursleves, let alone the fruits fo our labors?
      Fruits of our labors: Stolen through Taxation, plus sales tax, gas tax, FCC taxes, licensing fees, etc, etc, etc.
      Right to ourselves: Smoking, drinking, riding a motorcycle, eat too much (Note, never too LITTLE), eat “wrong foods,” etc, etc, etc.

      Time to start shooting. People are so effing DUMB. Shoot, stab, detonate, poison, any and all means are PAST Due. 🙁

      You’re conflating two problems.
      Paying the town to get water is different from buying it from a corporation (at a profit for the corporation). One meets a need; the other will be enforced purchases, like auto insurance and now health care – and that means they get richer, and if you don’t have the money, you die. Make no mistake: The water is a means of control too. Water, food, guns, money: Control these, you control the world. (Energy control is good, too, but not as crippling as long as we can buy tickets to trains and buses, or walk. It’s a LONG WALK to Mexico or Bolivia when you’re in North Dakota, though.)

    • Nexus789

      Water should not be free. Nor should it be owned by a low life private company.

      It is a ‘public good’ that we all own and invest in as clean water prevents disease. We all pay for the public good so that public investment takes place to provide the resource.

      • Jean

        Yet even government is run as a “for profit” enterprise.
        Doesn’t work right for hospitals.
        CAN’T work right for government.
        It incentivizes the WRONG actions, and puts industry and government in an incestuous relationship. And will reduce us to being slaves.

  • johnd34

    Simple solution stop buying Nestle products including their candy.

  • Jean

    Access to drinking water has been declared a human right by the UN, IIRC. (Not that that means much, just noting.)
    The correct solution is to force a changeover of the Nestle CEO, by removing him from life.

    This shit will continue until we put our foot down; it will then get worse for a while, utnil they run out of people to throw at us.

    But we need some chlorine in the gene pool now and again. Kill off the bastards at least.

  • bigpaul

    i dont know about the USA but in the UK the water was privatised years ago and we pay for the privelidge.

    • Tiredofthebs

      I heard they were doing that and selling the water to China. Supposedly the water level has gone down some.

  • Duke of Sunrise

  • In 2004 the UN said water was a need not a right. If they changed this, it would now mean corporations have no more right.

    • Jean

      I believe you’re correct, and I THINK it was phrased as a “need to have clean water.” IE, no mention of who pays for it, but we all know who will pay in the long run.

  • Jean

    There’s a silly movie called tank girl, in this movie there’s practically no water available and this one corporation has hoarded it all they even have some gizmo they shove into someone and it takes the water out of them.

  • olinoah71

    People wake up. Water already IS privatised. At least here in Europe, all water on and underground is privately owned. Here in the Czech Republic (not Chechnya dear Americans) most of the water is owned by the French. There will be a Water Tax introduced in 2016 – if you have your own well, then you have to pay to use it and register how much you pump.

    While I don’t believe that water should be owned exclusively by corporations (let’s not forget governments are corporations), neither do I believe any substance is a “Right.” If you move to the Mojave desert, you have no “Right” to the water in the Great Lakes. Want water? Move your ass to where it is or buy it from someone who has some to sell. If that’s Nestle? So be it.

    You want food? Buy, grow or hunt/fish your own – you have no “Right” to food at the expense of another.

    You want a phone? A flat screen? A mistress? A baby’s arm holding an apple…..?

  • Locus

    Haha this Nestle CEO should have starred as the villain in ‘Tank Girl’

    Great movie… I recommend it to everyone.

    Stan Caughill: if your town water tastes (and smells) like chlorine, you should research to see whether they are injecting chlorine gas directly to disinfect.

    If so, they should switch over to use of Chloramine, where the chlorine is bonded with ammonia to create a stable disinfectant. The chemical bond keeps the chlorine from being released quickly into the air (and your nose and your taste buds), and has been shown to have no ill effects, so long as chloramines do not go above ~5 parts per million.

    It’s sad I know — but the human race has crossed the line and we can no longer rely on clean water tables or water pipes.

    Years ago you had a farms with wells, and the farmers would draw an insignificant amount of water from them, such that there was little movement in the water table. What was pure stayed pure.

    But now there are so many slurping cities and communities around you, the water table is in constant state of movement and depletion. When volumes of water are drawn, less wholesome water is drawn out of bedrock to replace it. Sometimes it is draws down from near the surface, and sewage and fertilizer runoff will enter what was once a pristine underground source.

    But not just the sources, the water pipes in your town might date back to the days of Roosevelt. The bottom lines is, we’ve crossed the line of population and needs, our water needs to be disinfected and we cannot go back in time.

  • they ay its safe and i dont know if there using gmos in there british productss but when ever i eat nestle cereal i get ill im writing this ill now and im sorry but the water was here firstr to help us live and just because its there doesnt give you the right to own it i dont own the water that runs from my tap i own the tap if some one comes to my house looking for a drink of water i let them have it doesnt matter who they are i dont charge them for it i dont even believe in selling bottled water as it is just water and doesnt / shouldnt belong to any one

    The “elite” saw a while back that they were looking at a shrinking economy and decided to make as much of what’s free no longer free, and profit from it as they could.

    Ever wonder why genetically modified foods are so protected by the government? Because most of the scum that makes up the government is heavily invested in them.

    Clarence Thomas was a lawyer for Monsanto and has never ruled against them, and the current head of the FDA used to work for them (but… but… Obama’s different – sure he is).

    They realized that since they owned the government, they could throw some genes into plants, patent the results, continue to eliminate natural seed choices for farmers, and have a steady income stream out of it, IF people are stupid enough to buy the idea that they have the right to do so, or that fighting back is somehow “wrong”.

    Ditto for the water companies. Ever wonder how Texas survived without most of it’s groundwater being ruined? Houston sits 6 feet lower in relation to sea level than where it sat before oil drilling began, yet today with seismic testing and far better extraction methods, water gets ruined almost everywhere any fracking is done or where there’s a pipeline. Why? Because they realize that if they eliminate free natural sources you’ll have to pay for it.

    Why do you think TransCanada modified a US Geological Survey map to show that their “Keystone XL” pipeline skirts the Ogalalla aquifer when in fact it doesn’t, if you are looking at the legitimate map?

    They’re not the “elite”; they’re the scum of the Earth.
