(en) Canada, Guelph, Ontario, Linamar – Nestle: Out of Guelph!

Date Thu, 15 Nov 2007 17:07:30 +0200

In the early morning of November 8th, a group of anarchists went up the water tower closest to the downtown area in Guelph, Ontario. We proceeded to paint both sides of the tower in large legible letters: “LINAMAR – NESTLE GET OUT OF GUELPH,” using the letters spelling GUELPH already found on the sides of the water tower. ---- On the following night of November 9th, we rode up to the gated house of the Hassenfratz family. In the phone book the address is under Frank Hassenfratz’s name, but many sources have led us to think that Linda Hassenfratz lives there. We could care less which of their homes we visited because Frank is the Chief of the Board (COB) of the Linamar Corporation, and Linda is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Linamar.

We shut the gates that lead up to their home with a thick chain and mammoth-sized lock. We spray painted the walls surrounding their personal lives with messages like “Water not for sale” and “Linamar out of Guelph”. We hope that their day tomorrow will be ruined, like their conspiring schemes in the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) plan to ruin our lives.
[Better a bad day than a bad drink.]

Linamar, a member of the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC) and Linda its CEO, meets behind closed doors with politicians such as George Bush, Stephen Harper and Jose Calderon. Their plans, among other projects, comprise of bulk water exports. Seeing as how the water we drink is already being sucked out by the Nestle Corporation at the expense of those whose wells are drying up and whose water is being sold off to accommodate the thirst of the bourgeois city dwellers, which already have had their water polluted and exhausted by the capitalist system. We see Linamar, Stephen Harper, the Hassenfratz and other NACC members in the same light that we see Nestle: the thieves that continue to reduce our lives and drinkable water into commodities that can be manipulated in the interests of Capital.

If these fools believe they can continue their process of dispossession and exploitation unscathed, they are terribly wrong.

Our message to oppressors like Linamar and Nestle is clear:

Let us make this a reality.Canada
