Resist Nestle!

Quick Action: Petition

Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.

Peter Brabeck

Nestlé's Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with "The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution."

Tell Nestlé:

“Water is a public right. Start treating it like one and stop privatizing our resources.”

Nestle, Israel, Palestine, & Water:

Access to adequate safe, clean water is a human right. A human right that it is not surprising to learn that the country that would give Nestle its highest award would deny to Palestinian people. 

Scroll down on this page to "Access to adequate safe, clean water . . . " for more information on Palestine's water woes:
 "Nestle received from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 1998 the Jubilee Award, the highest tribute ever awarded by the State of Israel in recognition of those individuals and organizations, that through their investments and trade relationships, have done the most to strengthen the Israeli economy."


Boycott for Peace!

    Nestle's CEO, Tim Brown, on why they are profiteering on water in drought stricken CA.

    It's up to us to be the change. Carry a refillable water bottle with you, and when you must buy a bottle of water, buy the store's house brand, rather than a name brand. You can look at the fine print at the back of the bottle and see who it was bottled by.
