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.
