Nestle – Water, NOT a Basic Human need

Peter Brabeck, CEO of Nestle, at the time when this statement was made, argues that water is NOT a basic human right and, therefore, should be privatised, like any other kind of food. You can find Brabeck’s statement at minutes 1.50 to 3.30.

As a result, Nestle is trying to get a hold of many water resources around the world, wit very little concern for what this does to access to water of the people in that area, let alone the pollution created by the plastic bottles use to distribute that water.

Avaaz has published a number of petitions against the predatory strategies of this Swiss company. You can find them, and join, if you wish, HERE, HERE and HERE, among others.

Here is the message I have left today on the Nestle website:

I would like to know if it is true that Nestle CEO has declared that access to water IS NOT a basic human right.
If this is really true, I have a real concern.
I wonder what’s next. Will Nestle try to get a monopoly on the air we breathe?

  1. Aşteptăm cu interes un update şi dacă se confirmă o astfel de năzbâtie propun un boicot împotriva produselor şi comaniei Nestle.
