CALL FOR ACTION ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 16th - WORLDWIDE ANTI-McDONALD'S DAY

Saturday October 16th 2004 will be the 20th annual Worldwide Anti-McDonald's Day [UN World Food Day] - a protest against the promotion of junk food, the unethical targeting of children, exploitation of workers, animal cruelty, damage to the environment and the global domination of corporations over our lives.

SO WHY NOT ORGANISE PICKETS AND PROTESTS IN YOUR TOWN ON SAT OCT 16th? And please send us a report! Please copy the 'What's Wrong With McDonald's?' leaflet at:

http://www.mcspotlight.org/campaigns/current/wwwmd-uk.pdf [or use latest text below, at end]

Millions of leaflets have now been handed out in over 27 languages worldwide since 1990 when the McDonald's Corporation took legal action against the McLibel 2 aiming to suppress the growing leafletting campaign. This surely demonstrates the determination of community activists to ensure that the public have the opportunity to see through the glossy marketing propaganda that big business continually forces upon us.
