  1. Seriously, everyone stop buying the stuff, then there would be no market for it 🙁

  2. I wish they’d have the common sense to stop companies like Nestlé from buying absurd amounts of groundwater for literally pennies and selling it at a huge markup. This is the company whose CEO once said that water as a human right is an extreme view. Although Nestlé backpedaled on that statement a bit, their corporate philosophy still monetizes water as a commodity and aims to make as much profit from it as possible.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/407280/maori-water-rights-case-aims-to-stop-water-bottlers) reduced by 81%. (I’m a bot)

    > A Waitangi Tribunal claimant hopes his High Court case will force the government into a fair process granting M?ori customary rights over freshwater so bottling export operations can be shut down.

    > A landmark Waitangi Tribunal report in August found M?ori have rights over fresh water in New Zealand, and Paul said the tribunal had recommended the case be taken to the High Court.

    > "The test case will be 'do M?ori still have customary rights to their water' and the answer to that as far as we are concerned is yes, because there is no law – we can't find a law – that has extinguished those rights.”

  7. Just trying to get that late game tourism from unimproved tiles to sneak a cultural victory.

  8. I buy maybe 5 bottles of water a year. Why is there even a market for this?

  9. Good. Fuck bottled water.

  10. So the problem with this is that the legal grounds are “first nations people own everything and the government isn’t sovereign” which defeats the purpose of having a government in the first place

  11. I am disappointed in Jacinda. WTF

  12. British Colonial Pakeha steal everything and sell it off.

  13. Bottling water should only be allowed from normally unsuitable drink water, like sea water. Not goddamn near-drinkable spring/ground water.

  14. I know who the Maori are! I understand this headline!

    Ha. … Civ 6.
