Policing the Nestle demonstration in Croydon and cyberspace

The annual demonstraton at Nestle UK HQ will take place in Croydon on Saturday 16 May 2009 from 11:00 to 12:00 (noon). For details and to sign up to let us know that you are coming, go to:

If you can't make it to Croydon, you could organise a local event at a Nestle factory, Body Shop (part-owned by Nestle) or a retail outlet selling Nestle products. See the above link for information, resources and leafleting guidelines.

This year we are also holding a virtual event, which you can sign up to on Facebook at:

The numbers of people signing up on Facebook has put the local police into a bit of a panic! We have been contacted asking to discuss arrangements for crowd control. I've responded pointing out that this is usually a problem with events in cyberspace!

However, just to be sure people are not jetting into Croydon from China, the US, New Zealand and some of the other places 'confirmed' participants live, please complete the online form if you are REALLY intending to come to the REAL event outside the REAL Nestle HQ.

We hope to see as many of you there as possible. This is a family-friendly event. There will be a short theatre piece alongside the leafleting and hopefully we'll be able to post this online soon afterwards for those who attended in spirit.

There appears to be two Nestles.One is the world's no 1 food company with great brands and excellent product quality.The other is associated with the Chinese made-milk tainted with melamine issue and an unfavorable trade/distributor image (i.e.,BULLY)in the Philippines .
