Starbucks CEO in town, wednesday 6th december- demo!

hi all

the big daddy of starbucks will be in london giving a speech at NASDAQ conference.

the IWW is calling for a demo against the union-busting nastiness of starbucks

here's the starbucks workers' union website, with plenty of info on starbucks and its sacking of 5 key union organisers, intimidation of members and anti-union propaganda: www.starbucksunion.org

we are demonstrating in wednesday 9th december outside the Rennaissance Chancery Court Hotel, 252 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7EN at 9am.

bring frineds and a healthy disrespect for posh hotels. spread the word, etc etc...

red n black star

perhaps its best to take everything raw says on here a as a kind of reflexive satire: its like Ali G - the joke is on those who take him seriously. wink

if i did buy amazon, i'd run it so badly that i'd probably be smashing capitalism far more effectively than a lifetime of activity sad

won't get there until at least 9.40 so not worth the effort for me, so i'll be off to the justice for Cleaners demo instead.

no worries dude, in the end a whopping five of us turned up (and one of those arrived when we were packign up!)

we got rid of a load of leaflets and a fair few people were interested/receptive, so it wasn't all bad
