McLibel Support CampaignPhoto shows two young people standing in front of a banner reading "McDonalds Guilty."Many people over the years have criticized and protested McDonald’s practices. In 1985, London Greenpeace launched a general anti-McDonald’s campaign to coordinate and strengthen opposition. This has been enormously successful, especially the world-wide annual Anti-McDonald’s Day every October 16th (UN World Food Day), involving hundreds of local protests.
