Anti McDonalds Day!

Yesturday was the 20th annual National Anti-McDonalds Day. Every year on October 16th people all over the World come together in peaceful protest against this corporate junk food giant to raise awareness about subjects such as McDonalds damaging the environment, exploiting workers, cruelty towards animals and for targeting youth in their ad campaigns. The date of protest was started by the London branch of Greenpeace in 1985 and was chosen because October 16th is also the United Nations World Food Day.
You can visit the official anti McDonalds site here for more information on the company and can also download a version of their “whats wrong with McDonalds” leaflet to learn more about why there is controversy behind the Mc Giant.

  1. I have been boycotting McDonalds for 6 years now… not a single french fry. In certain circles this is far harder than one might think.

    Also CBC was showing this documentary which takes a look at a particualr case brought against McDonalds in England. might be worth looking into.
