Tapped - the movie
A serious look at the scourge of bottled water - and what Nestle has done to the town of Fryeburg, ME. Nestle/Poland Spring has torn the town apart - and turned people against one another, through intimidation, blackmail (we'll set the IRS on you) and bribery. Anyone who dared dissent against Nestle is retaliated against. Just ask the town librarian. Local cable access broadcasts of a selectman's meeting showed a couple of inebriated local women who were put up to going after Emily Fletcher - calling for her resignation and suggesting she'd been stealing from the town. One of the aforementioned sots turns out to be working for Poland Spring. Their latest action was to ask the selectmen if there was a town ordinance against accusing people of being drunk. Not candidates for Mensa, those two. This is what Nestle has done to Fryeburg.
This movie is scheduled to be shown in Maine - but Nestle is trying to buy up all the tickets and make sure as few people see this film as possible. This trailer also shows some clips of Ohio Congressman, Dennis Kucinich, who understands the water issue better than most - and who told me all about the toxins in plastic water bottles one day on the campaign trail.
