No to MacDo!
Parents go to war against the McDonald
When France is known as being the best place to eat healthy and natural food, it is also known by a few as the second biggest market for Mac Donald. In fact, there are over 800 McDonalds in France.
However, the implementation of a new McDonald’s in Franconville (“Grande Couronne” Parisian Suburb) near schools causes the anger of parents.
Just over a hundred people demonstrated last Saturday to protest against the project. Then, they went to City Hall to drop off the petition
of 1300 signatures against this future fast-food implementation.
Despite all the efforts made in France by Mac Donald to provide healthy food (baguette, salads, and low calories sandwiches), some French seem not to approve the hegemony of the giant American and consider it as an American cultural invasion (which is not false).
The José Bové (the farmer turned activist who in an act of civil disobedience drove a tractor into a McDonalds) would probably join them soon. 😉
I really don’t think that this demonstration will stop the opening as political have strong and juicy Agreements with the giant. As usual this demonstration will be forgotten in a couple of
days and therefore ignored.
