Here's my original email, with more information about Vittel's struggle against Nestlé:




Nestlé has drained millions of gallons of groundwater out from under the small town of Vittel, France… sometimes without a license!

A small group of brave residents is hoping this is the year they stop Nestlé -- but they’re paying for their whole fight out of their own pocket, and they’re running out of cash. Can you... help end Nestlé’s stranglehold on this community?

A,

Nestlé has a stranglehold on the small town of Vittel, France.

Year after year, it pumps millions of gallons of precious groundwater from the town to sell at an outrageous markup. And year after year, Vittel’s people watch as their water levels plummet. They’re now facing their fourth straight year of drought!

It’s an ecological disaster, but a small group of brave residents is organizing their community to fight back against this corporate giant -- and they need our help.

Nestlé is already facing a lawsuit in France for pumping water without permission. And with local groups on the offensive from the US to Canada to Switzerland, the company is in panic mode. After years of pumping Vittel dry, this could finally be the moment they sound the retreat and leave this town in peace.

That’s exactly what these volunteer residents are fighting for -- but right now they’re paying for everything out of their own pocket: expert legal advice, demonstrations, and travel for advocacy meetings. And unless we help them, they’ll run out of money in weeks.

Will you help these water warriors organize their community and beat back Nestlé’s greed?

Nestlé has all but taken over the region, and even elected officials are afraid of speaking out against this bottling giant. Thanks to their inaction, the water level is now TEN METERS below its natural level.

But against all odds, this small group of retired volunteers is actually winning -- slowly but surely. Just last year, residents -- with the support of SumOfUs members -- flooded a public consultation and forced the government to cancel an absurd pipeline project that would have cost the town tens of millions of Euros to get their water elsewhere… just to avoid upsetting Nestlé!

But that victory came at a huge financial cost, and now just as the town inches closer to freeing itself from Nestlé’s grasp, the whole movement could go broke.

We can help. Chip in and help this town break Nestlé’s stranglehold on their water, for good:
