TAKE ON BIG TOBACCO IN EAST HANOVER, NJ!
For as long as everyone can remember, Philip Morris, aka Altria,
has held its Annual Meeting of Stockholders at its facility in
Richmond, VA, a decidedly "tobacco-friendly" place.
This year, however, the company chose to switch the location of
the meeting to its Kraft facility in East Hanover, NJ. Perhaps
Altria thought the move would prevent us from showing up to demonstrate.
If so, they were WRONG.
April 29, 2004, over 150 youth and adults from CA, DC, HI, NH,
NJ, NM, NY, WI, Colombia, Senegal, Thailand, and Ukraine* were
outside the location of the Altria Annual Meeting of Stockholders
bright and early in the morning to hold the company accountable
for promoting death and disease around the world!
