Hi,<br><br>
I'm writing to give you more information about the day<br>
of action on Ocotber 16th and to invite you to<br>
participate.<br><br>
McDonalds workers, across the UK, Continental Europe,<br>
Russia, North America and Australasia, will take<br>
direct action against our employers.&nbsp; There will be<br>
different sorts of actions, reflecting the different<br>
organisations and individuals participating- some<br>
strikes, some sabotage, go slows, partial walk outs,<br>
'phone in sick days', etc.&nbsp; <br><br>
It will be the first ever co-ordinated, international,<br>
worker led mobilisation by the McDonalds workforce and<br>
we want you to participate too!&nbsp; All McDonalds workers<br>
are encouraged to rebel on that day and we are also<br>
encouraging people who do not work for McDonalds to<br>
take action in solidarity- get the message to<br>
McDonalds workers, disrupt McDonalds business...&nbsp; <br><br>
For more information, please see:<br><br>
<a href=3D"http://www.geocities.com/globaldayofaction"=
eudora=3D"autourl">http://www.geocities.com/globaldayofaction</a><br><br>
There is already quite a bit of information on this<br>
site and it is where we will post reports of actions<br>
as we receive them on October 16th.<br><br>
To make sure this works, please let us know if you're<br>
planning an action, and then send us a report.&nbsp; Please<br>
send e-mails to both:<br>
reports@???<br>
globaldayofaction@???<br>
Or, from the 10th we can be reached by phone on:<br>
((00) 44) 07732 531 196<br><br>
Workers who are getting up to mischief on the 16th are<br>
reminded that, although taking part need not endanger<br>
your employment, if what you're planning to do could<br>
potentially go wrong and result in dismissal, then<br>
it's worth getting any money you're owed (like holiday<br>
pay) paid through before the 16th.<br><br>
A leaflet is being designed which will soon be on the<br>

Please feel free to print it out and distribute to<br>
your workmates or workers at your local store.&nbsp; The<br>
idea is to have the international text (produced by<br>
some of our comrades in France) as a common text on<br>
all leaflets, and then a local text, specific to the<br>
situation where you work or live, or to a particular<br>
organisation.&nbsp; So, we have also produced an MWR text,<br>

***********************<br>
Only fighting will win !<br><br>
Today is the&nbsp; date of the first ever co-ordinated<br>
international mobilisation by the McDonalds workforce.<br>
&nbsp;Today is the day that we say 'enough is enough' to<br>
exploitation and low wages.&nbsp; Today is the day&nbsp; that we<br>
throw a spanner in the works of McDonalds profit<br>
machine.<br>
&nbsp;<br>
We, the organizations undersigned, have decided during<br>
an international conference that took place in Essen<br>
(Germany) "i2002" and in subsequent discussions, that<br>
this 16th october will be an international day of<br>
struggle for improved working conditions and salaries<br>
in which we invite the participation of all McDonalds<br>
workers. <br><br>
This is why colleagues, we intervene in your<br>
restaurant- because all over the world the McDonald's<br>
multinational exploits young workers for miserable<br>
wages in harder and harder working conditions. <br>
McDonald's makes every effort to prevent us from<br>
organazing and constituting unions because they know<br>
such organisations allow us to oppose the corporate<br>
dictatorship that benefits only the employers and<br>
treats us with contempt. <br>
&nbsp;<br>
But today this strategy is failing: Everywhere we are<br>
organizing- in associations (McDonald=92s Workers<br>
Resistance),&nbsp; or in unions (CGT Spain, CNT-France,<br>
IWW-USA, IWW-Australia=85). For many years our<br>
organization and struggle has been increasing, today<br>
we find a new unity and internationalism.&nbsp; <br><br>
NO MORE SHALL WE ENDURE MODERN DAY SLAVERY ! <br>
TODAY, 16TH october, WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH ! <br>
FOR AN INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY ! ! ! <br>
FOR THE UNITY OF ALL THE McDONALD'S WORKERS ! ! <br>

*******************************<br><br>
October 16th 2002?<br><br>
October 16th is world anti-McDonalds day, it's also<br>
the date of the first ever co-ordinated international<br>
mobilisation by the McDonald's workforce.&nbsp; This maybe<br>
the first you've heard of the international networks<br>
of McDonalds workers that work together to advance our<br>
interests and to confront the exploitation and greed<br>
of McDonalds... you will hear a lot more over the next<br>
few years.<br><br>
What's happening?<br><br>
McDonalds workers in the UK, across continental<br>
Europe, Russia, North America and Canada are working<br>
together to protest against our low wages, poor<br>
working conditions and McDonalds attempts at<br>
preventing us from organising.&nbsp; Some workers will go<br>
on strike or take the day off, others will work, but<br>

Anything else?<br><br>
If Ocotber 16th is a protest we hope it will also be a<br>
celebration of our new found unity, internationalism<br>
and rebellion.&nbsp; So use the excuse to get together with<br>
your workmates for a few drinks, bongs, cups of<br>
coffee... make friends in kitchen, make trouble on<br>

Why?<br><br>
Because we are sick of low wages and dire<br>

environmental destruction and emotional manipulation<br>

Because the workers united are more powerful than they<br>

<br>

We are showing ourselves and the world that we are<br>
