    The current Chairman and former CEO of Nestlé, the largest producer of food products in the world, believes that the answer to global water issues is privatization. This statement is on record from the wonderful company that has peddled junk food in the Amazon, has invested money to thwart the labeling of GMO-filled products, has a disturbing health and ethics record for its infant formula, and has deployed a cyber army to monitor Internet criticism and shape discussions in social media.
    This is apparently the company we should trust to manage our water, despite the record of large bottling companies like Nestlé having a track record of creating shortages:
    Large multinational beverage companies are usually given water-well privileges (and even tax breaks) over citizens because they create jobs, which is apparently more important to the local governments than water rights to other taxpaying citizens. These companies such as Coca Cola and Nestlé (which bottles suburban Michigan well-water and calls it Poland Spring) suck up millions of gallons of water, leaving the public to suffer with any shortages.

    Although the focus is on the U.S., this is what I thought when I saw the thread title:

    Nestle and other water bottlers (notably Coca Cola which last I heard either privatized or was trying to privatize India's sacred river, the Ganges) are doing this across the world, including the motherland. And across the world, the people are getting the same result as in India.

    Don't laugh. The French tried "canning" air right after it was found that Americans were so stupid as to buy water in a bottle when they could get it free from a tap. They called it something like "French Provincial Air."

    No dear heart, that was the purpose of Black solidarity day, the day after election day; no school no work, and no buy! They feared it so much here in NYC that in the late 70s they threatened civil service employees seniority, but they shut stuff down anyhow, and kept their seniority too
