Sacramento Protest of Nestlé Water Theft

22 Apr

As California suffers record drought, activists recently organized resistance to corporate water theft from the humans and non-humans who depend on it in this area. This protest cuts past the paradigm of blaming ourselves as individual “consumers”, instead placing the focus on those who actually control the vast majority of the resources. Until we stop the corporations and the power structure supporting and protecting them, our landbases will continue to be exploited for their profit.

Environmental and human rights activists, holding plastic “torches” and “pitchforks,” formed human barricades at both entrances to the Nestlé Waters bottling plant in Sacramento at 5:00 a.m. on Friday, March 20, effectively shutting down the company’s operations for the day.

Members of the “Crunch Nestlé Alliance” shouted out a number of chants, including ”We got to fight for our right to water,” “Nestlé, Stop It, Water Not For Profit,” and “¿Agua Para Quien? Para Nuestra Gente.”
