Ronald McDonald Faces Numerous Charges

Press Release for immediate release

Ronald McDonald Faces Numerous Charges

Ronald McDonald will be facing numerous charges on Tuesday, the 16th of October, World Day of Action Against McDonalds. He is set to appear in front of an unbiased and just jury of animal and human rights activists, environmentalists, and anti-capitalists at 4:30 pm outside of the Victoria Street McDonalds in Hamilton.

The charges, which range from unethical targeting of children, murdering and torturing millions of animals, exploiting workers, destroying the environment and rainforest, promoting unhealthy food, and censoring opposition, mirror those that saw the McDonalds corporation involved in the longest libel trial in British history, which was coined the McLibel Trial.

Michael Wise, from Hamilton Animal Rights Defense, says it is about time this criminal is brought to justice. “McDonald’s has been killing, encaging and generally torturing billions of animals world wide, for the sole purpose of profit. They are the largest promoter of meat-based products in the world, they are the largest user of beef and the second largest user of chicken. All of their pig, chicken and egg products are a result of cruel factory farming. They are guilty of horrendous crimes against animals.”

The trial will begin after 4:30 pm on Tuesday. It will be open to any concerned persons. Ronald is still at large at the moment, but we have word that he will be in town on Tuesday, and have warned proper authorities of his likely presence, so they can attempt to apprehend the criminal.
