Fantastic News: Nestle To Be Sued For Californian Drought Crimes!

Their permit to extract water expired 27 YEARS AGO, but the corporation just kept on going. Finally, activists hope justice will be served...

Nestle To Be Sued For Californian Drought CrimesCampaign group The Story Of Stuff Project have just announced they will be pursuing legal action against Nestle for illegally extracting groundwater in California for its Arrowhead brand, which has been a key contributor to the State’s drought crisis.

Thanks to generous donations from a huge number of furious citizens, The Story Of Stuff Project was able to raise enough money to film a mini-documentary called ‘This land is our land’. It tells the story of Nestles removal of millions of gallons of water from the San Bernardino National Forest- and it details evidence of criminal activity by one of the world’s most unethical corporations.

The Story Of Stuff Project reports:

“While filming in southern California our team uncovered hard evidence that Nestle has been operating outside the bounds of the law. When Nestles permit to remove water expired 27 years ago, the U.S. Forest Service should have turned off the spigot. But instead, it has allowed Nestle to continue operating unabated, in violation of the terms of its own permit.

So to defend the public resources at stake we’ve joined with two great partners—Courage Campaign and the Center for Biological Diversity—to turn up the heat on Nestle by filing a federal lawsuit challenging the company’s illegal occupation of these public lands.”

This is great news for campaigners and terrible news for Nestles CEO, who is insane enough to believe that water is not a human right and should be privatized.

Activists have already shut down a plant in California, and this is the next step in the fight against greed and corporate ecocide. Please share this (very moving) video to support the campaign, and if you are still buying bottled water, please stop!
