Anti-McDonald's Happening

14th April 1999

Hi! We're going to have a great anti-McDonald's happening in Finland on Wednesday, 14th April. We've been celebrating McDonald's birthday every spring since 5 years now.

This time we're going to have the biggest party ever... there will be demonstration with performance, music and free vegan food (hamburgers!). "McLibel-Two Worlds Collide" -documentary will be showed in the evening.

Furthermore there will be demonstrations in Joensuu, Jyvaskyla, Kouvola, Pietarsaari, Rovaniemi and Turku and picketing outside local McDonald's in Hyvinkaa, Imatra, Lohja, Oulu, Rauma, Savonlinna, Tampere and Vantaa.

The McLibel documentary film will be showed at least in Hameenlinna and Tampere.

We hope that's enough to show McDonald's that we don't love them... there is a powerful, ever-growing anti-McDonald's movement in Finland. These 16 localities organizing protests are only an example what we're able to do.

Your campaign plus Helen and Dave have all our support. We're doing our best to inform people in Finland of McLibel, McDonald's and other multinational fast food corporations.

Best wishes,

Garbage - Fast Food Campaign
