Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
~~I found a corporate sponsored version of long-suffereing Nestle….
“the world’s largest food and beverage company has hung on for six years, enduring legal challenges and public protests as it awaits state permits that would allow it to bottle and sell spring water now owned by the state government. Opponents warn against privatizing a public resource for corporate profits.”
…kinda like Faulkner, endure survive and prevail..
~~But beyond the corporate bottom line, in the real world,
the Company has been tapping public resources for years…
often flat-out stealing the water then overcharging to give it
back. Nice deal if you can bribe your way into it.
” as the drought has worsened, Nestle’s Nestle Waters North Americas Inc division – the largest bottled water company in the country – has continued to pump water from an aquifer near Palm Springs, California, thanks to its partnership with the Morongo Band of Mission Indians. Their joint venture, bottling water from a spring on land owned by the band in Millard Canyon, has another advantage: since the Morongo are considered a sovereign nation, no one needs to report exactly how much water is being drawn from the aquifer.
Until this year, British Columbia didn’t have rules that required the company to report how much it drew from the province’s aquifers – or pay a penny to the government’s coffers in exchange for the resource.”
Sounds like Nestle needs to return excess profits they raked in by stealing the water, bypassing the public and tapping the source.
Despicable. And it is past time for them to pay their dues.
They need to pay for what they took and be cut off from the source.
NESTLES’ THIEVES AND LIARS
STOLE PUBLIC WATER AND
NOW THEY HAVE DUES TO PAY!
Nestle needs to pay some dues for the damage done.
