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 wealthand 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. 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.
Fuck Nestlé - these arrogant fuckers have the hubris to promote themselves as 'the world's leading nutrition, health and wellness company'
Nestlé has promoted their turgid formula milk over natural breast feeding to to mothers all over the world (predominantly in the third world) for years. In recent times, mothers that breastfeed have increased dramatically in number, but Nestlé won't stop pushing their junk - http://politicsrespun.org/2011/05/nestles-war-on-breastfeeding-moth...
Nestle Infant Formula:
Artificial milk powder + fluoridated or ditch water + BPA laden plastic bottle with artificial nipple = perfect formula to ruin the baby's health.
Good find - thank you for posting this very important article. I will boycott all Nestle products hereafter. They are part of the evil NWO - Illuminati agenda. I believe almost all infant formula is GMO Soy based, and we have seen the new evidence of GMO foods on rats with multiple enormous tumors all over their bodies.
There is no end to the madness..
A lot of people that are lactose intolerant and not actually allergic to milk at all it is their bodies telling them not to drink that crap its not alive anymore. By pasteurizing the milk they do this: Soluble calcium and phosphorus decrease by 5%, thiamin and vitamin B12 by 10%, and vitamin C by 20%. They have already killed all the nutrients and removed all the cream in milk by the time you drink it. Very few people including babies are really intolerant (allergic) of milk products.
The best thing for baby is moms milk, but our world has made that seem unattainable to most mothers because they also have to work outside the home to provide for the family. So then the moms turn to cows. When this change started to take place most people still had a friend or family member that could provide fresh milk to them. So then all of a sudden it was unsafe for the babies to have fresh milk. Look how simple it is to make a bottle by punching this can open or throwing in some of that powder out of a can to feed your kid and by all means only use the best brand which of course is ______ (insert your choice of big name company).
Usually people can drink fresh farm milk and even goat milk (real good) for that matter without any kind of a bad reaction.
It is another way to control the food supply and in the same time damage the health of people who do drink that crap they have the nerve to call milk.
When did we lose our backbone? Maybe when they took our calcium away?
You know maybe we should "Just Say No".
Now they are coming after the water!?!
The Bush family purchased 98,842 acres in Paraguay on Oct.13th,2006, and guess what, come on guess.....ok,ok get this that land sits on top of one of the WORLDS biggest aquifers and, and it is also sitting in a very strategic drug and arms trade route.
Here is just one of the links I have to read about this: http://www.fourwinds10.net/siterun_data/government/fraud/gw_bush_gh...
"The Guaraní Aquifer...is one of the world's largest aquifer systems...It is said that this vast underground reservoir could suppy fresh drinking water to the world for 200 years." "US President George W. Bush allegedly has recently purchased a 98,842 acre farm in Chaco, Paraguay atop the aquifer. The Reverend Moon has purchased 1,482,600 acres in Chaco, Paraguay."
Now on to whom Reverend Moon was because he also owned a million and a half acres on top of the one of the worlds largest aquifers. That's right the very same one, The Guarani Aquifer.
Good article here about his church and him, notice it says after his death his two sons and his wife will take over.
The death of Reverend Sun Myung Moon hopefully ends one of the strangest chapters in U.S. security industrial complex history. The self-proclaimed "Messiah" who owned dozens of businesses including Kahr Arms, and who once claimed to have presided over Jesus' wedding posthumously in order to get the Christian savior into heaven, was ultimately a front in the United States for friends in the CIA like George Herbert Walker Bush.
Good read here at: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL1209/S00029/reverend-moon-cult-lea...
Like father like sons? They too, like the Bush family sit on top of the water, enough for the world for the next 200 years!
