Engelsk text

McLibel is the unlikely but true story of how a pamphlet called “What’s wrong with McDonald’s?” led to the longest trial in British history. In what has become front-page news around the globe, the trial pitted the multi-billion-dollar corporation against five members of London Greenpeace accused by McDonald’s of libel. Three activists capitulated and apologized. McLibel tells the story of the “McLibel Two” and the two-and-a-half-year trial in which the jeans-clad and impoverished defendants represented themselves against the best powdered-wig lawyers McDonald’s could buy.
