Mon 8/24 – PROTEST WHOLE FOODS CEO

TAKE ACTION – PROTEST WHOLE FOODS CEO
MONDAY 8/24 – 10:30 AM – 1PM

UFCW Local 21, CAGJ & others will be leafleting Whole Foods starting Monday to protest Whole Foods CEO John Mackey’s editorial (see link below) blasting current Health Care Reform efforts. There is a Boycott Whole Foods movement brewing nationally, and it links our values on Health Care Reform to our values about exposing progressive imposters like Whole Foods CEO John Mackey.

This is a Media Event, so your turnout Monday would be greatly appreciated.

WHO:           Local health care activists and labor advocates, led by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 21

WHAT:         Launch of consumer campaign to educate shoppers about Whole Foods CEO’s efforts to undermine health care reform and President Obama. UFCW 21 will be providing educational information to Whole Foods shoppers.

WHEN:         Monday, August 24, 2009:  10:30 am – 1:00 pm

WHERE:       Whole Foods Westlake Store:  2210 Westlake Avenue

  1. That Mackey cannot make the connection between whole foods and a health care system that serves everyone and makes good nutrition, prevention, etc. a priority is an outrage. I cannot join you for your pickett (I am in Michigan on my way to Florida) I will make the Whole Foods store in Tallahassee aware of my feelings.
