WATER IS NOT A HUMAN RIGHT!!!! (according to Nestle)

in #news3 years ago (edited)

This is a very interesting interview with the CEO of Nestle. According to this man the view of seeing water as a basic human right is an extreme position and that water itself is simply another product that can be barcoded and tagged; to make him and his company more disgustingly rich.

Nestle has a long history of unethical practices that have disgusted millions of people; to the point that they will boycott their products, yet at the same time they only seem to get bigger and more powerful.

The fact that we live in a world where companies of this nature are allowed to operate only highlights the weak and pathetic leadership that we have in governments all around the world. This type of capitalism wants to put a price on every single aspect of reality. If they could price-tag your soul they would do so.

Here's some ideas -
How about we have a basic standard that we operate of us humans?
How about we don't enforce systems that keep people within hardship, misery and ill health?
How about all the energy that we use to make people like this rich, we use to help others?

Until that point, try to remember when you go to the supermarket some of these brand names that do the worst acts within our society; and maybe look to switching to an ethical competitor. At very least we can act as consumers to make better choices of who we are giving our hard earned money to.

Every time you make a purchase you are voting for someone or something, an outlook or an ideology. There are many ethical companies out there who treat there workers well and observe better practices towards environmental and ideological issues. It can feel like a tiny thing like this can do nothing, but it is one vote for a better way.
