Today, Corporate Accountability International is launching a campaign to ask McDonald’s to retire its child-exploiting mascot, Ronald, who for almost 50 years has been getting kids hooked on fast food. I am speaking at a press conference this morning at San Francisco City Hall, while another takes place in New York City, and events are being held at McDonald’s outlets around the nation to get the clown to step down. Read more about the campaign at RetireRonald.org, including poll results that show almost half of Americans agree that it’s time to retire Ronald. More to come.
