Nestlé CEO Denies That Water is an Essential Human Right

"Water is Life"
By JonasForTheArt

Activist Post

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. (source)
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 more mechanized 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?

If I recall correctly, in the classic book "Blue Gold: The Fight to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World's Water", the authors described a UN symposium on fresh water that took place more than a decade ago. The conclusion of the participants was that water was a human need not a human right. I believe they also concluded that there was "an excess of democracy". No doubt representatives for Bechtel, Nestle, and the rest of the cast of usual suspects were in attendance.

BTW, was there any kind of follow-up on the story presented on Jesse Ventura's cable show Conspiracy Theory about huge amounts of fresh water being taken from the Great Lakes and shipped overseas? This seemed like a globalist beta test for scaled up water theft.

Refreshing to warch a man telling the truth about his job, and for the greater part of what his company is about.
As ro incidents in past, do agree they made some real screwups and outright criminal choices.
As to water aa a commodity. Believe man is dead on, whatever they can make per product volumne good deal.
IF you lived anywhere that water was in short supply you lnow its value.
The more rural one is the greater the problem of access today but at least most of that one can access is almost drinkableand even some communitys and individuals water is very pure.
HAVE NO QUALMS WHAT THEY CHARGE THOSE IN MUNICIPAL AREAS FOR WATER., IT SHOULD BE ON ORDER OF $20.00 PER GALLON MINIMUM with $50.00 closer to true value.
Human access to water has always been closest got control and use to their advantage, it iseven that which gave empires the right of conquest. Especially in new world.
Inthe west we usedto register our wells but soon the something for cheap or almost free killed that idea and the everybody owns your well water or what ypur resivouirs and rain barrels. even took over.
You live in rat warrens that waste billions upon billions of gallons dauly and pollute it in all itsnatural environs so yes it is best if a private firm does control and meter its useage.
THE waste teeatment water is good enough for public usage but most governments employees cannot even take that job effectively so it also is being privatized and improved effeciency is shown.
Edible products fromhuman waste are becoming available by those privatizedconcerns.
There can only be one effecient way for water to be used and to leave that in the hands of the collective mindaet is a sure case for disaster.
In Japan whole drainage systems are being privatized and the quality of the seefs lives are improving.

GUESS WHAT?
THE WORLD DOES NOT NEED YOU 90% OF WORLDS POPULATION DO NOT NEED YOU AND IF YOU CANNOT BUY WATER THE CORPORATIONS DO NOT NEED YOU EITHER.
YOU HAD BEST BELONG TO SOMEBODY OR SOME ORGANIZATION THAT WILL OWN YOUR BUTTS COMPLETELY, AND JOIN SOON; BECAUSE REST OF EARTH WSHTF DOES NOT NOR WILL NOT GIVE A DAMN WETHER YOU DIE OF THIRST STARVATION. PERVERTED OR MURDERED OR BY SUICIDE BOMBERS. ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS LIVE.
We made this earth and we know damned well we are killing others and eventually ourselves but we cannot stop doing so for some perverse reason, so drink what you can afford and shut up.

This is absolutely the most stupid comment I have ever heard. A human is mostly water. What planet did he just fall off of. What a flipping Jerk. and who is paying him to say that?

Same ol' shit. Men attempting to be God in the only way they know how; by seizing control of all the basic needs of human existence. In the end, they do nothing more than prove the NEED for their oblivion.

Put him in a room for 1 week with no water,
and see what he thinks then about water not
being essential to life.

If anyone knows where this story can be found elsewhere, please comment/post? I've been in touch with an upper-level manager at Poland Spring and would really appreciate having these points for discussion! TIA!

i suggest we put em in a concentration camp made just for them, where THEY have to find ways to afford some water if THEY are willing to survive...maybe then they will come to their senses but even then i fear they wont. food=3weeks water=3 days and air=3minutes....
the food is already under control, water is next and we already see the retoric about air. what a bunch of sick aliens.

I wish I born when real people exhisted. 2013 sucks, and so do the people. Why would anyone believe this man, or even listen to his words? Even though Nestlé is ALREADY off my list of food products to buy, this should open an eye or 3 for people who still do buy their poison. What a loser that dude is, f'in despicable.makes me proud to be an American that we are now selling Afiganistan their own water in poisonous plastic bottles. We are genious' over here.

Well, let's see if Mr. "Activist" will actually allow this comment to pass through, unfettered. I'll send it twice in hopes that it will be allowed to pass.

@anonymous,

savemiwater.org's site appears to have been recently scrubbed. The oldest news post is dated February 4, 2013. I can't even find anything in the Internet Archives.

Try the search site http://www.dogpile.com/info.dogpl/search/home. Dogpile is an aggregator that takes its results from many different search engines. Use the Advanced Search function if you like. Try the search phrase "suburban Michigan well-water and calls it Poland Spring". One of the links I found in reference to that phrase is at http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1689229:

"4. Commercial bottlers: 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."

Good luck.

GW Bush and investors bought water rights to the (?) largest aquifer in South America along w/the best pumping locations and global shipping amenities. Why buy this without a market? That's a dam expensive hobby without a market!

But wait! If we allowed everyone's water supply to be damaged/poisoned by fracking, they couldn't bathe, wash dishes, do laundry, cook, drink, water their lawn or plant a (fukn terrorists) organic garden! They would have to buy water FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES!!

The inevitable outcome will be that ALL water will become "govt property" to insure "equitable distribution. Yeah, fairness and intelligent distribution by the same morons that allowed the killing of the nation's water supply to happen. Magic, isn't it?

Do you think that water allocation will go to Monsanto and toxic GMO factory farms or to organic and small, sustainable farming?

This allows even greater control of everyone than total control of the food chain! Yippee! Profits for ALL the psychopaths running corporations!

Oh, and Nestle (Pepsi and many others) use genetically modified stem cells manipulated to induce flavorings in their products.

The ONLY "positive" to this is that the stem cells come from a voluntarily aborted 1970 something fetus.

You pretty much have to agree with Gandhi when he was asked by the paparazzi what he thought of Western Civilization. He paused, then said "I think that would be an excellent idea."

brad said...

When a corporation or govt can make rain when, where, and how much is "best" i STILL deny that they own it.

Water is the key to life. If these corporations take control of water, they control your life. Who decided that this choice even belongs to the wealthy to decide about all of humanity?

The self-annointed, alleged "elite" are obviously ignorant of what elite actually means. It basically means better, and while some ways of measuring better are arguably subjective (Dahmer votes for killing and control of victims as better) their own self aggrandizement proves that they lack basic critical thinking skills and thus intelligence.

Elites tie their wealth to intelligence. Well, is MENSA the wealthiest group in the country/world? i think not. How do the trust fund babies GUARANTEE that their children are intelligent enough to be worth all that money? They can't - and some of these rich people are abysmally stupid. Very, very, stupid. Lastly, when a rich person loses money, does their IQ drop?

Flawed thinking to engender a false paradigm of superiority to induce a tendency to allow them to make decisions for us on the (wrong) assumption that a wealthy person is better qualified to make such choices. They are not. Neither are their bought experts, or their bought government "authorities".

@djohnston, thank you kindly. Yes, I've found the quoted paragraph all over the webs, all pointing to that missing original material which apparently existed online only at savemiwater.org.

If what's been going on for over a decade in Canada as detailed at www.waterwarcrimes.com is any indication -- and I believe it is -- the disappearing of websites is mere daily trade for the 2Big2Sues.

Maurice Strong's water empire is developing nicely with fewer willing to risk life to interfere with it; well,fewer alive to try, too..
