Protesters want Sacramento Nestle plant to stop bottling water


Concerned that precious California water is going out of state during the state's ongoing drought, several dozen protesters were at the Nestle bottling plant in south Sacramento Wednesday to urge the company to cease bottling water.

The demonstration was peaceful.

"We do need to stop bottling water until we know how much we are using, and how much we have left before we run out," Tim Molina with The Courage Campaign said before the protest.

The plant uses city of Sacramento water.

Big protest expected at Nestle bottled water plant


With water in short supply, should companies like Nestle stop bottling water from California? Hundreds of protesters across the state will try to convince Nestle and other manufacturers to do just that on Wednesday at 11 a.m.

Tim Molina is one of an estimated 200 protesters with "The Courage Campaign" that are expected to show up at the Nestle bottled water plant in south Sacramento.

"It's going to take a lot of tough decisions to deal with the drought," Molina said. "The drought is only getting worse. We're running out of water. We're literally running out of water and if Nestle and other corporations continue this business as usual model, we're going to run out."
