CEO of nestle quoted saying water is not a human right. Who's to say what is and isn't? Either way, that's so ridiculously cold.

Not a right, it is a requirement in order to not die.

This pisses me off so bad, the drought is so bad in CA that water is being rationed in many place, also restaurants are fined if the serve you water without asking; yet Nestle can continue to bottle water in CA and ship it off to outside CA. Nestle has earned my voted for most heartless company, and reddit trying to hide it is not much better.

At least that water stays in California. The water that Nestle drains is just shipped off elsewhere.

Not mention some of crops we grow that require a shit-ton of water (like alfalfa, almonds, and pistachios) that are mostly shipped off to China because it's more profitable that way.

My parents live in CA in an area that's major industry is farms, dairies, and packing houses. A lot of the crops grown there are the ones I mentioned, that are mostly exported to China. And unfortunately, many neighborhoods there still have private or community wells that filter and pump water into resident's houses. The problem right now is, those wells are only a few hundred feet deep, and the farmers are pulling water from 600 - 700 feet deep. All the community wells went dry months ago because of the farmers irrigating.

So now, the people there have to either pay tens of thousands of dollars (each) to dig new wells, or pay to truck in water once a week until we get enough rain to bring the water level back up this fall/winter. It's a mess.

interesting argument, though you can still drink wine and it probably has bigger economical impact that golf courses. Though if you cut off water to either of those you will basically collapse the industries.
So limiting water export would the harmless and obvious solution.

What the fuck. You spend yearly on weapons and army more than some European countries had spent in total since 1945, and you can't provide water for one state?

I looked at /r/undelete and /r/censorship and couldn't find anyone discussing this post in particular.

Interestingly, however, I found this post (archive) about a similar event 9 months ago, again involving Nestle which was also censored after rising in popularity

Edit: there's a post on the front of /r/conspiracy but no discussion yet

So, does anything get censored on /r/conspiracy ?

Because I used to really hate that sub, but now I feel like they might be saner than I once thought. That, and they might be a decent gateway to get information through to other reddittors.

Rarely does stuff get removed from r/conspiracy If there is a removal it is usually an admin removing it because then it won't show up on undelete ect. Reddit funnels all the stuff they don't like into that sub, so a lot of the stuff that hits the top of the conspiracy page is also stuff that hits the top of v/news. (Clinton email stuff for instance, for a week they censored all they could of it and pushed it all to the conspiracy containment zone)

That will not do shit.

It is very hard to boycott Nestle, as illustrated by this list.

Nestle advertises in Conde Naste publications.

Reddit never say anything bad about Nestles' assets.

This is strange. Anyone know why Reddit is censoring this? It doesn't make sense to me.

Edit: I just posted this to Undelete. We'll see if I get shadowbanned.

Two options:

  1. They're continuing to make Reddit a safe place for corporations in the hopes of monetizing it even more, and since Nestle is one of the biggest corporations in the world that doesn't drill for oil, they're a good candidate for corporate dick-sucking.

  2. They're already receiving money from one of Nestle's thousands of subsidiary companies.

Sigh, Nestlé has been doing this for decades. Two years ago they appealed a restriction put on place on them in Ontario to reduce water usage during times of drought, stating that they take ground water and that it doesn't effect surface water.

More and more people are realizing that reddit is a shill corporation.

Keep on with the radical censorship, the more people who are enlightened the faster we can move towards a better future.
