McdonaldsMcLibel, UK's famous McDonald's story, is coming to the states.

"McLibel is the true story of a postman and a gardener who took on McDonald's and wouldn't say "McSorry," in a legal battle since described as "the biggest corporate PR disaster in history."

McDonald's loved using the UK's libel laws to suppress criticism. Major media organizations like the BBC and The Sun had crumbled and apologized. But then McDonald's sued penniless activists' Helen Steel and Dave Morris.

In what became the longest trial in English legal history, the "McLibel 2" represented themselves against McDonald's USD$19 million legal team." More.
