Open Letter by 
Yasmine Motarjemi , Former Corporate Food Safety Manager (2000-2010), Assistant Vice President
to
Mr Peter Brabeck-Letmathe
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Nestlé, S.A
55 Avenue Nestlé
CH-1800 Vevey

"Nyon, 4th Septembre 2010
Dear Mr Chairman,
I was your Corporate Food Safety Manager from 2000 to 2010. I write to you today for two reasons: 
first, to share with you my concerns regarding a culture and management practices in Nestlé, which 
undermine food safety; and, second, to inform you of my personal experiences while attempting to
improve the situation.
I long nourished the hope that you would be interested in meeting the person responsible for dealing 
with everyday problems of the Company in an area as important as the safety of Nestlé products. 
However, to my regret we have never had the opportunity to meet and discuss the food safety 
situation in the Company. As both corporate-level management of food safety and my professional 
status deteriorated to the point of being unacceptable, I was compelled to report my concerns to 
Management with the expectation that a fair evaluation of the situation would be undertaken. In 
the event, my efforts were in vain. 
Mr Chairman, I always found listening to your speeches a source of motivation and inspiration. 
Moreover, Nestlé Policies and Management Principles portray a model Company, with the most 
laudable corporate values. A glance at the Company building, offices and facilities is enough to make 
any outsider believe that this is an ideal working environment. 
However, after only a short time, I was profoundly disappointed at how people are managed, the 
discrepancies between your public statements and the private deeds of managers; between the 
Company’s policies and management principles and actual practices; and between the proclaimed 
values and the prevailing fear culture (including mobbing and intimidation) that managers nourished. 
I was particularly saddened by the growing realisation that Management was not only aware of this 
situation but that it was also fully accepted by the very people who should have been, in fact, the inhouse guardians of policy compliance.I failed to see the flawless execution of policy that you promoted in your speeches. Didn’t you state 
that the management of food quality and safety depends on the quality of management? What can 
be said about food safety management when the members of Management themselves do not 
respect Company policies and principles? 
If I dared challenge the Company’s food safety and human resource practices I can assure you that it 
was not out of disrespect. On the contrary, it was because of my loyalty to the Company, my 
colleagues and the consumers we served. It was also because for me the safety of our products and 
respect for our colleagues were non-negotiable values. Involving staff in building a better company 
unavoidably includes exposing shortcomings. But surely it is better to receive timely feedback from 
within than to be publicly embarrassed later by failures.
You have often expressed your commitment to food safety. Please allow me to share with you my 
own vision in this regard. Over and above the technical and scientific aspects, the foundation of 
good food safety management is an equitable system of people management that is based on 
professionalism, fairness, objectivity, open-mindedness, respect for staff and, most importantly, for 
their dignity. I regret to say that I failed to see this approach implemented at the Nestlé Head Office. 
My own situation is a case in point. 
On several occasions I reported – first to members of Management and then, in November 2009, to 
Mr Paul Bulcke – serious shortcomings in food safety management, the professional difficulties I 
faced, and the shameful treatment that I experienced in Nestlé. I hoped that I would be given the 
opportunity to provide a full and accurate account of events during the period 2005-2010. In 
response, my contract was terminated with no opportunity to provide details of my experience. 
Nevertheless, I am prepared to meet with you, at your convenience, to share my observations on 
practices in Nestlé and their eventual repercussions on Nestlé’s reputation and consumers. I would 
also hope to use this opportunity to identify an equitable solution for my personal difficult situation, another consequence of the past events in Nestlé"

#Francistan #Valls annonce une armée de blogueurs officiels contre le "complotisme"

Alors que la Chine a déjà son « armée de l’ombre » depuis une dizaine d’années pour faire la contre-propagande sur le Web, le Premier ministre français Manuel Valls annonce une initiative qui pourrait ne pas être éloignée : une fondation qui aura pour charge d’alimenter des community managers en outils pour diffuser la « parole officielle » contre le djihadisme et le complotisme.

Manuel Valls a-t-il trop bien écouté les paroles de Lui Wei, le ministre chinois de l’administration du cyberespace, qui l’an dernier avait demandé à l’Europe de s’inspirer de la Chine pour faire d’internet « une place publique d’opinions honnêtes et raisonnables » ?

A l’occasion d’une master class organisée par le Huffington Post, le Premier ministre a annoncé un nouveau volet de la stratégie de contre-propagande de l’Etat, après la censure de sites sur simple ordre administratif (et sans aucune explication fournie à ceux qui en réclament) et la création du siteStop-Djihadisme, que Google est payé à mettre en avant.

La France va mettre sur pieds une Fondation de droit privé qui aura pour charge d’alimenter un « bataillon de community managers de l’État » en outils de contre-propagande pour s’opposer non seulement au djihadisme, mais plus largement aux discours dits « complotistes » qui peuvent miner la crédibilité donnée aux informations officielles de l’Etat, et donc indirectement alimenter les adversaires de la France.

« Nous nous adressons au coeur de cible : les jeunes en voie de radicalisation« , annonce Manuel Valls. « Nous allons donc mettre en place un

Richest Countries Bomb among World's Poorest:  #Yemen already a Forgotten War

VICE News | (Video) | –

“For more than six weeks, nine countries led by Saudi Arabia have been carrying out airstrikes on Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest nation. Whole neighborhoods have been destroyed and communities reduced to rubble.

According to the United Nations, the strikes, targeting Iranian-backed Houthi rebel positions in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, have killed over 1,400 people, many of them civilians.

With international media unable to enter the besieged capital, Yousef Mawry, a local journalist, recorded the devastation of his home city for VICE News. He meets the survivors and victims, getting the inside view of life in Yemen.”

#USA Why Rand Paul is right to Kill the So-Called #PATRIOTAct:  It was never about #Terrorism


By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment) | –

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has vowed to force the expiration of the so-called PATRIOT Act on Sunday. Paul is right that it is unconstitutional and in this regard he is a better constitutional scholar than Barack Obama, whose stance on this issue is, to say the least, disappointing.

Obama is not interested in the Fourth Amendment. PBS Frontline says that the National Security Agency didn’t even bother to read him into its massive domestic surveillance program until 2010, two years into his first term, and that when they did, he just sat there and nodded approval. You have to wonder if they are blackmailing him in some way, though there isn’t any reason think that. This kind of surveillance is corrosive of democracy, because we can never trust elected politicians on whom the super-spies might have dirt.

The so-called PATRIOT Act was pushed as an anti-terrorism measure after 9/11, but it was never about terrorism. The bureaucrats and the GOP had clearly had such an assault on civil liberties and the US Constitution prepared in the 1990s. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) once told me the story of how this 1100 page bill was dropped on all the congressmen and women

The United States is "likely" to significantly boost its already astronomical military aid to Israel, Reuters reported Thursday. Citing an anonymous U.S. official, journalist Dan Williams wrote that, after the $3 billion annual military aid package expires in 2017, this amount could be raised to $3.6 to $3.7 a year. An unidentified Israeli official pegged this post-2017 amount between $3.5 billion and $4 billion.

From the Mediterranean to Southeast Asia, hundreds of thousands of migrants are risking dangerous waters to escape war, persecution and economic hardship. Though developed nations have opened their doors to some, the figures are a mere drop in the ocean compared to the millions in need. What can be done to convince the world’s more fortunate nations to accept substantially more refugees, and can the causes of migration be addressed before people get into deep water in the first place? Oksana is joined by Peter Sutherland, UN special representative on international migration and development, to explore these issues.
