McDonald's Has Closed 350 Stores Since Jan 1, 2015 Will Close 350 More This Year.
http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2015/04/23/18771454.php

139 McDonald's in Japan, 2nd biggest market, have closed because of a 1 million McNugget recall prompted by blue plastic bits in the
McNuggets

http://www.motherjones.com/blue-marble/2015/01/mcdonalds-just-recalled-one-million-chicken-mcnuggets-super-gross-reason

McDonald's has been losing customers because of the explosion of vegans and vegetarians, the labor movement, the environmental movement, health conscious doctors cattle industry water problems etc.

It has been 10 years since the European Court of Human Rights in 2005 fined British courts 57,000 pounds for denying free speech to Steel and Morris in London Greenpeace V McDonald's,
Unionbusting, obesity, strokes, heart attacks, cancer, animal agony, deforestation, rainforest destruction, energy waste, crime, litter, employee burns, unusual ingredients continue to be
associated with the Western wrold's biggest restaurant chain

http://geography.about.com

"According to the McDonald's Corporation website (as of January 2015), McDonald's has, "retailers in more than 100 countries, with more than 36,000 restaurants serving approximately 69 million people every day." (Quote from above link) Since 2007 when MCDonald's was in 119 countries, it is in 19 fewer countries but still the biggest Western corporate restaurant chain.

McDonald's Sues Seattle Challenging Its Right To Raise The Minimum Wage In Its City

The 14th Amendment, an anti slavery amendment, guarantees all persons equal protection under the law. McDonald's argues that corporations are legally people.

http://boingboing.net/2015/03/09/mcdonalds-sues-to-block-seat.html

When Richard Nixon was president, Ray Kroc, McD founder, gave him 1 million dollars in exchange for Nixon's exempting fast food chains from minimum wage. Nixon did so, but was overridden by Congress.http://aflcio.org

McDonald's ordered to pay 1 million for having put lard (sheep tallow) in their french fries
Lawsuit by Hindus and other vegetarians
http://www.vegsource...declaration.pdf

On April 30, Steve Inskeep of NPR reported that a Kuala Lumpur appeals court has
ruled McDonald's has no standing to prevent another restaurant from naming itself
McCurry. As millions of Scots have said, McDonald's doesn't own the prefix Mc

Before the NAACP and Charles Griffis, a Los Angeles franchiser, sued, McDonald's did not
allow black franchisers to buy in white neighborhoods. The case was settled out of court.

In return for 1 million dollars from Ray Kroc, Richard Nixon agreed to exempt fast food chains
from minimum wage laws. Later Congress repealed the law.

Annie Besant, founder of the Theosophical Society, wrote that places involving murdered
animals attract violence. The San Ysidro McDonald's massacre
http://www.mcmurder.com

Both Prince Charles and his father Prince Philip have made public statements, the former
that McDonald's should be shut down, the latter that McDonald's was destroying the rainforest.

Unconstitutional court gag orders which violate the 1st amendment prevent the public
from knowing the results of the tens of thousands? of lawsuits against McDonald's
for food poisoning and many other situations.

National Public Radio was the recipient of 200 million dollars from Joan Kroc, Ray Kroc's
widow. Unfortunately several times a week the NPR staff work in product placement
ads for the chain. Marketplace, Morning Edition, All Things Considered etc. How can there
be unbiased coverage of news when such a financial incentive to promote a company is
involved?

Pitcher Goose Gossage of the San Diego Padres was suspended for saying McDonald's
was poisoning the world with cheeseburgers.http://www.pcrm.org/

Cargill, the largest private equity firm in the US (little public supervision) is one of
many slaughterhouse operations McDonald's employs.

The Consumer Freedom group is funded by multinational corporations. Its CEO subsidizes
attacks on animal rights activists.http://www.worldanimalnet.org/

McDonald's had had 70 legal complaints about hot coffee burns (2nd and 3rd degree)
before someone finally won.

Hygiene: admittedly it's hard to make the serving of cadavers a clean business.

Animal flesh is the world's biggest cause of annual deaths, from heart disease, strokes,
food poisoning, many kinds of cancer, kidney breakdown (carnivores have 5 times our
kidney size per lb.
http://www.pcrm.org/

Animal flesh is an addiction
The trioxypurine or uric acid or preurine in animal muscle cells is more addictive than
caffein, dioxypurine (3 oxypurines to 2). You can break the chains which cause animal agony.

McDonald's generates the most litter in England and around the world.
http://www.treehugger.com/corporate-responsibility/fast-food-leaves-the-most-litter.html

While McDonald's has accommodated many different cultures with McFalafel in some Arab
countries, no cow flesh in India, and veggie burgers in European countries, it has
never yet followed Burger King and several other fast food chains in offering a vegan burger
in the US. It has no soy icecreams.http://www.vegdining.com/

Annie Besant, founder of the Theosophical Society, wrote that places involving murdered
animals attract violence. In the San Ysidro California McDonald's massacre

21 were killed, 19 injured

Footnote from Wikipedia:

The original case (McLibel London Greenpeace v McDonald's) lasted ten years, making it the longest-running case in English history. McDonald's announced that it did not plan to collect the £40,000 that it was awarded by the courts. Following the decision, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled in Steel & Morris v United Kingdom that the pair had been denied a fair trial, in breach of Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights (right to a fair trial) and that their conduct should have been protected by Article 10 of the Convention, which protects the right to freedom of expression. The court awarded a judgment of £57,000 against the UK government.
