Nestle CEO: Calling water a public right is extreme

There's a video clip of Nestle's CEO, Peter Brabeck-Letmanthe, saying that calling water a public right is an extreme view. Nestle provides Pure Life water and bills itself as a leading nutrition, health and wellness company.

But Nestle still promotes infant formula over breast milk in poor countries where instructions may not be in the local language, fuel to sterilize the water is expensive, and the milk powder is skimped because the formula is expensive. I haven't bought a Nestle product in 30 years.
