: I appreciate what a success the McLibel Trial has been for
: Anti-McDonald's campaigners, in terms of getting your opinions
: into the media, but the fact of the matter is that
: McDOnald's open 20 (or so) new stores a day and are showing record
: profits every year.
: Can you ever really hope to have any effect against something as
: big and powerful as that?
: P.S. I hope so, or we're all fucked :-)

I feel the same way about the issues that I campaign on;
see my homepage.

I believe that regardless of apparent hopelessness of the situation,
we must do what we can to fight the intolerable, we must try to make
other aware of the issues and we must never give up. It is quite
obvious that no matter how poor the odds, if we don't try to make
things better, they will get no better. We can't all expect others
to make the sacrifices and take the chances, if we don't like the way
things are - we MUST try to change them.
