During the past 18 months, thousands of activists have protested and
leafleted outside of 800 Starbucks cafes and demanded that the
company: REMOVE GENETICALLY ENGINEERED INGREDIENTS FROM THEIR FOOD AND
DAIRY PRODUCTS ON A WORLDWIDE BASIS, IMPROVE WORKING CONDITIONS FOR
COFFEE PLANTATION WORKERS, AND BREW AND SERIOUSLY PROMOTE FAIR TRADE
COFFEE IN ALL OF THEIR CAFES.
150 locations have already been confirmed but the goal is still
distant at 400 cafes and over. If you are willing to participate
please contact campaign@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or call 510-525-7054.
Please indicate the date, time and location of the Starbucks outlets
you will be leafleting, and we will be happy to send you an organizing
packet with all the information and materials you need to organize a
protest in your town.
Grassroots pressure over the past two years has forced Starbucks to
partially give in to our demands (banning GE coffee, offering organic
milk as an option in their cafes, reformulating some of their products
to avoid GE ingredients, agreeing to brew Fair Trade coffee one day a
month) but we need to keep up the pressure to win this campaign.
