Nestle Chairman says water is not a human right; 'Nestle is the world’s biggest bottler of water. Brabeck claims – correctly – that water is the most important raw material in the world. However he then goes on to say that privatisation is the best way to ensure fair distribution. He claims that the idea that water is a human right comes from “extremist” NGOs. Water is a foodstuff like any other, and should have a market value'. http://usilive.org/nestle-ceo-says-water-isnt-a-human-right-tell-him-hes-wrong/          
 
 Help tell the E.U he is wrong by supporting the proposed Citizens Initiative: Water and Sanitation are a human right! Water is a public good not a commodity! https://signature.right2water.eu/oct-web-public/?lang=en

Please, caring people, help block Nestle's corporate lobbying against water as a human right and tell the E.U to adopt the U.N's position on water as a human right. Thank you.

Unless water is a human right, what then with the air we breathe? shall we buy the air also by Nestle.
Love

Clean, affordable water is the most basic of human rights.
