Pledge now to stop Nestlé from privatizing nature.
Fighting for people over profits.
Nestlé’s chairman has been caught on camera saying that water isn’t a human right, calling this view “extreme”. Instead, he wants water sold on the open market like anything else, for those who can afford to buy it — and his company is working harder than ever to make sure it happens.
Its business model is clear: privatize and commodify our public resources — under the leadership of a man who says a CEO’s “biggest social responsibility” is to ensure corporate profits. From Pakistan to Canada, Nestlé is busy draining millions of liters of our fresh water — often without paying a cent! — in order to sell back to the public at record prices.
Here’s the thing: if we don’t stand up to Nestlé, no one will. The world’s largest food company already has governments and regulators in its back pocket, and has cowed others with its aggressive PR campaigns.
They have billions in corporate profits and influence. But we are two million strong, and we have the public on our side. And when people stand together, we can win. In Canada, an ambitious lawsuit stopped Nestlé from extracting millions more liters liters of fresh water during a drought. And in Pakistan, Nestlé was even sponsoring fake ‘public health seminars’ to tell people that non-bottled water was dangerous, until public outrage forced them to stop.
Can you commit to stand up to Nestlé, and pledge now to stop Nestlé’s plan to commodify nature for profit?
