    Did you know that it is Johns Hopkins who is a major shareholder in Veola Environment through HighStar Investment firm that is pushing the privatization of public water and waste? Did you know that Veola Environment and HighStar have Ivy League endowments in the other cities pushing the privatization of public water—-like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and Berkeley. Privatization of public assets to maximize profits for these endowments.

    Did you know the goal is to privatize water, end public subsidy of water as water rates rise, use SMART METERS to ration water to what the every growing impoverished public can afford all to maximize profits for Johns Hopkins endowment?

    You must be listening or reading Maryland media —–they make sure you do not know—-especially Marc Steiner.

    VEOLA ENVIRONMENT is a global corporation bought from the French global corporation VEOLA of transportation fame. The one known for slave conditions for their workforce all over the world. VEOLA ENVIRONMENT is working all over the world to privatize the world’s public water and waste and in nations having the pleasure of a few decades of their presence water rationing with SMART METERS has been in what followed. Now, Wall Street and Ivy League endowments want to bring it to America since they are taking the US to third world levels. That Trans Pacific Trade Pact may not be in place in the US but Maryland and neo-liberals in Congress are preparing for it.
