NWRage announces opposition to plans for Starbucks in 7 Corners

Did the community need another reason to oppose Starbucks moving into the Seven Corners? North West Resistance Against Genetic Engineering (NWRage), Organic Consumers Association and other anti GE groups around the world have had an ongoing campaign against Starbucks. Since February 2001, the anti genetic engineering activists in the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and other countries have protested and leafleted outside of nearly one thousand Starbucks cafes, demanding that the company
  • remove genetically engineered ingredients from their food and dairy products on a worldwide basis.
  • improve working conditions for coffee plantation workers.
  • brew and seriously promote fair trade coffee in all of their cafes

[ Please join NWRage, the community and local businesses to oppose the new Starbucks slated for 21st Ave and SE Division ]
