Off-subject?? A little, unless you consider it in light of our recent
Starbucks coffee composting conversations, or want to support organics, fair
trade practices.

We realize you may be focusing your efforts and energy on stopping the war
against Iraq, but it's also important that we continue to campaign for
social justice around the world.

**National Call In Day Against Starbucks, Tuesday March 25, 2003 on the day
of Starbucks Annual Shareholders Meeting**

 Join the Organic Consumers Association, Global Exchange, the Community
Alliance for Global Justice and other social justice, environmental, and
food activists in a "virtual march" on Starbucks to change their company
policies by actively promoting Fair Trade Coffee and Chocolate in all of
their stores and removing Genetically Engineered ingredients from their food
and dairy products.

PLEASE CALL, FAX, EMAIL OR WRITE STARBUCKS ON MARCH 25!

Call Toll Free: 1-800-235-2883

Write: Orin Smith, CEO Starbucks PO Box 34067 Seattle, WA 98124-1067

Email: osmith@starbucks.com

Send a free fax from our website at
http://www.organicconsumers.org/starbucks/downloads.cfm

Tell Starbucks:

*They need to stop serving GE ingredients including rBGH in their dairy
products, in all of their 6,000 cafes.

*They need to brew Fair Trade coffee in all of their cafes at least once a
week.

*They need to make sure all their coffee growers are receiving a fair wage
for the coffee they grow.

BACKGROUND:
In the past two years thousands of activists in the US, Canada, New Zealand,
Israel and England have protested and leafleted outside of hundreds of
Starbucks cafes in what continues to be the largest grassroots campaign of
its kind focusing on fair trade and genetic engineering. Our volunteers have
now handed out a quarter of a million leaflets to Starbucks customers and we
have educated many millions more through the numerous media stories the
campaign has generated.

Starbucks says they are a socially responsible company, they need to prove
it! We are calling on Starbucks to brew Fair Trade Coffee weekly; provide
clear evidence that they are in compliance with their previous promise to
improve the wages, working conditions, and lives of the people who grow and
harvest the coffee they buy; and remove GE ingredients from their products.
