The Water in the News blog mentioned a citizen’s protest I wish I’d seen – anti-Nestle Waters of North America activists in Maine dumped bags of empty plastic water bottles in front of Nestle/Poland Spring’s law firm (Pierce Atwood).
On Friday, November 14, 2008, Maine youth teamed with Native Forest Network and Defending Water for Life to protest a Portland law firm for its role in the commodification of Maine’s groundwater.
People from across Maine brought trash bags full of empty plastic water bottles to Pierce Atwood to demonstrate the physical ramifications of the corporate bottling industry for Maine’s landfills.
The Portland-based law firm represents both Nestlé Waters North America and the Nature Conservancy in their water acquisition projects throughout Maine.
Now the law firm – a fixture in the lawsuit-plagued town of Fryeburg – can also “enjoy” what town landfills all over Maine experience on a daily basis – piles of plastic waste generated delivering something that flows into almost every house.
