: : We just watched this program and want to congratulate you for standing up for your principles and representing many people around the world who wished they could have participated in what you have accomplished. Best of luck for the next stage of your quest.

: : McSpotlight: Ta, and we'll pass your best wishes on to Dave and Helen ;)
: I just finished watching also. Remarkable courage. Congratulations and good luck in the future. As I have 3 small children I have been concerned for some time about the subversive advertising that is thrown at my kids.It is everywhere. I'm sure that if they were to see the McLibel programme, they would not be able to understand why Dave & Helen were attacking their favourite restaurant.
: McSpotlight: Thanks as well; it's precisely *because* your kids see McDonald's as 'good guys' capable of doing no wrong that the alternative message needs to get out as well.
I totally agree with all you've done, especially for any animal killed or kept "alive" in inhumane ways. The trouble is in regards to kids being used in the "pester" factor of marketers....what can we do about other products sold in this way? Just look at any violent cartoons and the way the resulting violent toys are being sold......But that aside, keep up the great work!!!!
McSpotlight: Cor, it's like Christmas today!
(As to what we can do; well, actually educating people as to the existence of pester power is a start...)
