Dear friends,

Moviment Graffitti's protest in front of a McDonalds outlet, coinciding with a visit of Ronald McDonald (the emblem of exploitative globalisation) was very successful. [MSC note: we believe this was on May 1st]. The protest was against the Millennium Dreamers Competition which was organised by McDonalds and the local Education Department for school children. This was a blatant case of exploitative advertisement targeted at young children. The theme of the protest was McJunk.

The protest was well reported on the National Television in campaigns/countries/all countries.html">Malta and the main Sunday newspaper.

On a more positive side, the drama unit of the education department has produced a very good play called junkfood high for all local secondary school children. The director of the play, Mario Azzopardi declared that this play was directed against the McDonaldisation of society. You can contact him on email marpardi@campaigns/countries/all countries.html">

The struggle against McDonalds in campaigns/countries/all countries.html">Malta is gaining momentum and we are already making plans for anti McDonalds day.

Long live the globalisation of solidarity against the globalisation of capital!

yours truly,

James Debono International Secretary
