Nestle CEO: ‘Humans Have No Right to Access Free Water’
Peter Brabeck-Letmathe an Austrian businessman and the chairman of mega-corporation Nestlé, has criticized people who believe they have a right to access water as he calls for privatization.
For Brabeck-Letmathe, as CEO of one of the largest food products companies in the world, the answer to global water issues is to make people pay for water and deny the rights to access it. In his statement, he said that “water is not a public right” as he declared that Nestlé should be in control of the world’s supply so they can sell it back to people at a profit.
Global Research reports that this statement is announced by the great company that has invested money to thwart the labeling of GMO-filled products, has tried to sell junk food in the Amazon, has a disturbing ethics and health record for its infant formula, and has deployed a cyber army to shape discussions in social media and monitor Internet criticism.
It seems that this is the company we should trust to manage our water, even with 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 from any shortages.”
But Peter Brabeck-Letmathe believes that “access to water is not a public right.” Also, it’s not a human right. So, does this company be the one that public will place its trust if a privatization is an answer?
Here is an example of one of the many concerns for the public thus far, that Peter Brabeck-Letmathe’s company has:
“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.
Why? Because Nestlé wouldn’t have a lucrative market in water bottled under the Pure Life brand, but only if the community had fresh water piped in.
If we go several years back, we can watch a subtitled video where Brabeck discusses obligatory statement that organic food is bad and GM is great, his views on water, even some pitiless comments concerning his view of Nature. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe’s statements are important to review because we are still watching the world around us how it is become reshaped into a more mechanized environment in order to stave off that pitiless Nature to which he refers. Check the video below.
The conclusion of this segment it might be the most revealing about Brabeck’s worldview. Apparently, the role of the Nestlé Group as a savior in ensuring the health of the global population should be more than welcome. What do you think?
