Nestle CEO: Water Is Not A Human Right, Should Be Privatized

Fact checked

Former Nestle boss Peter Brabeck-Letmathe claims that water is not a human right and should be privatized and controlled.

Brabeck-Letmathe, the now Chairman of one of the biggest corporations and the largest food product manufacturer in the world,  believes corporations should own all the water on the planet, and no one should be allowed to have access to it unless they pay.

He also states that GMOs have never caused illnesses despite hundreds of independent studies showing otherwise.

So, is water a free and basic human right, or should all the water on the planet belong to major corporations and the elite?

Should the poor who cannot afford to pay these said corporations suffer from starvation due to their lack of financial wealth?
