In “Profound Loss For Maine’s Citizens,” Court OKs Sale Of Town’s Water To Nestle

TND reports “It was a win for corporate control of public water on Thursday for one Maine town. The winner in the case is Nestlé Waters of North America, which operates locally as Poland Spring. Fryeburg, Maine property owner Bruce Taylor and advocacy group Food & Water Watch had challenged the decision by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) that afforded the company the right to bottle and sell off water from the aquifer.

Nisha Swinton, a senior organizer with Food & Water Watch issued a statement following the decision, calling it “a profound loss for Maine’s citizens” that “paves the way for a private corporation to profit from a vital public resource for decades to come.”

“Water is a basic right,” she added. “No private company should be allowed to rake in profits from water while leaving a local community high and dry. As we’ve seen in communities around the country, selling off Fryeburg’s water will do nothing to help the town’s residents.

“Nestlé has a long history of bullying communities into selling off public assets for private profit. Unfortunately, they’ve won this round,” Swinton said. Read more HERE.

More corporate control? When will people say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
