Wakefield Climate Action Project (WCAP) members Jenn Kallay, Sherri Carlson, and Wendy Dennis attended a recent action meeting organized by Corporate Accountability International (CAI).

For more than 30 years, CAI, formerly known as Infact and of the Nestle and Joe Camel boycott fame, has waged winning campaigns challenging some of the world's most destructive industries - from big tobacco to bottled water giants.

CAI is currently building a movement called Value [The] Meal that is challenging the fast food industry to stop interfering in the political process, preventing the public from knowing the health risks of fast food, and bombarding our children with manipulative marketing.

WCAP is supporting this effort because, along with personal and economic health affects, the corporate manipulation of our food supply also has a significant impact on environmental and climate change issues.

If you would like to learn more or sign a petition in support of this campaign that will be presented to local MacDonald’s restaurants, information and sign-up sheets will be available at Wakefield Climate Action Project (WCAP) networking and educational event being held on Sunday, October 10, 2010 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Wakefield Unitarian Universalist Church 326 Main St in Wakefield, MA.  You can also learn more at www.stopcorporateabuse.org.

The event, which is in conjunction with the 350.org Global Work Party 10-10-10 day, (see www.350.org) will highlight what folks in Wakefield are doing to address climate and environmental issues, as well as provide a venue for finding volunteers or volunteer opportunities. There will also be a composting display,  information discussing the fiscal benefits of “being green,” and the CAI Value [The] Meal information and sign-up sheets.

In addition, there will be an opportunity for Wakefield residents to sign up for a free composting container courtesy of the Wakefield DPW. There are only 10 available at this time, so be sure to get you name in early if you want one!
