Nestlé Continues Stealing World’s Water During Drought

6

Nestlé is draining California aquifers. From Sacramento alone they take 80 MILLION gallons annually. They then sells the people’s water back to them at huge profit under dozens of popular brand names.

Nestlé has been draining California aquifers at an alarming rate. In Sacramento alone 80 they extract MILLION gallons annually.  Nestlé then turns around and sells the people’s own water back to them at a massive profit in the form of bottle water. But this is not even the worst of it, the multinational mega corporation has also been extracting this water with a permit that expired over 2 decades ago!

This has inspired a law suit against the company but we all know that won’t result in any actual justice since the law system capitulates to who ever has the most money and can continuously fight it out in court.

This inexcusable behavior on the mega corporations part has only been able to take place with help from the government. People, however, are growing angry and tired of this unacceptable behavior which is ultimately costing them massive amount of money. Worse still, is this company has literally single handily caused a drought! Please think about that for a moment, and let it sink in.

The city of Sacramento is in a record drought that has lasted several years – yet the multi billion dollar Nestlé Corporation continues to bottle public city water and then sell it back to the people at a huge profit. Do I have to explain how criminal and sick this is?

A coalition, which includes the crunchnestle alliance, the Story of Stuff Project, along with co-plaintiffs the Center for Biological Diversity and the Courage Campaign Institute have come together to file a lawsuit against the unethical corporation and charge that the company is draining up to 80 million gallons of water each year from Sacramento aquifers during the drought and don’t even have a valid permit to do so (not that would make it in any better either).

“Nestlé pays only 65 cents for each 470 gallons it pumps out of the ground – the same rate as an average residential water user. But the company can turn the area’s water around, and sell it back to Sacramento at mammoth profits,” the coalition  went on record as saying.

Nestlé is currently the number one supplier of the world’s bottled water (and thief of natural water reserves), including popular brands like Perrier, San Pellegrino, Pure Life, Ice Mountain, Zephyrhills, Poland Spring, and Deer Park among other.

But this corruption is just the tip of the iceberg. Elsewhere in the world, workers engaged in mass hunger strikes for the companies criminal and corrupt ways, such as Oscar Lopez Trivino have been assassinated. In fact, fifteen Nestlé workers have been assassinated by a paramilitary organization which has discouraged others from protesting. To imagine this is some how just all a coincidence is ridiculous.
It is time for us to wake up and realize that there is no difference between criminal corporations and criminal governments and banks and the military industrial complex. They all work together against us!

But don’t take my word for how sick and corrupt Nestle is, check out what their CEO had to say about how he thinks water should not be a human right below;

  1. Don’t get me wrong, Nesle is a crappy corporation, but 80 million gallons is NOTHING compared to what that dam holds.

    That dam is the Fulsom Dam in California and at capacity it holds back 1,120,000 acre-feet of water. Converted to gallons it’s about 3.6495306e+11. If Nestle took 80 million gallons out of that lake every year. They could do so for over 4,500 years before it was empty, and that with no rain at all.

    I agree with the point of the article, but lying to get your point across, no matter how noble is crappy.

  2. Not defending Nestle but this article is so wrong. The water consumption of Sacramento was 28000 million gallons in 2015 so that nestle caused a drought by being responsible for 0.003% of the water consumption is just a lie.

  3. Water should only be a “food stuff” and people should pay for drinking water BUT that’s ONLY if corporations wanna have some integrity and go the extra mile to make sure BOTTLED WATER does not contain NOT even a TRACE OF FLOURIDE. I would most definitoly buy bottle water FLOURIDE FREE BOTTLED WATER IS THE COMMODITY ID PAY FOR.
    Water at the same time is a key element of life and should be a human right

  4. Look! Who regulates these corporations? The States can stop them any time they choose, but do nothing! If we want to stop this stuff, it is imperative to force the States to protect their own water! This is not rocket science! If they and the voters do not care if Nestle or any other corporation steal their water, then our comments are meaningless!

  5. Nestle are renowned for their pathetic destruction. They are hated and loathed worldwide for forcing powdered milk onto poor mothers. They are a type of company that lacks a moral compass, and seem unaware of the damage they cause to the Dynamic Equilibrium that is NOT there for Sadistic-Schadenfreude continues to ravage.
