Movie: “Fast Food Nation”

Eric Schlosser’s 2001 book, "Fast Food Nation," an expose of the U.S. meat industry, has been made into a dramatized movie of the same name. It is scheduled for nationwide release on November 17, and may prove to be even more controversial than the book. Should be a great opportunity for leafleting and letter writing.

You can Google the movie name for more details. Focus of the film is on meat/health safety, exploitation of the work force (often Mexican), and the drug trade. Reportedly, there are some disturbing slaughterhouse scenes in the mix, filmed in Mexico. So brace yourself. McDonald’s and Burger King are gonna go ballistic!

Go to for more details, reviews, comments, etc. And alert your pro-animal, health-conscious, and socially progressive friends.
