from Baby Milk Action
is on the run because of pressure from the international
Nestlé boycott. It is desperately sending senior
staff to schools and universities in an attempt to break
support for it. Nestlé tries to sneak in without
Baby Milk Action getting to hear about their visit, but
when we have been able to attend and debate with Nestlé,
we have won every time. Keep your ears open and let us know
if Nestlé is coming to your campus, so we can expose
its denials and deception.
well-sounding (but demonstrably untrue) claims, infants
continue to die unnecessarily and Nestlé is still
found to be the worst company in pushing its baby foods
and undermining breastfeeding. We want to see meaningful
change. We win small victories with your help and are saving
lives. But what we really want is for Nestlé to accept
our four-point plan
aimed at saving infant lives and ultimately ending the boycott.
It is clear that Nestlé is in a state of panic -
keep up the pressure.
This pack of
documents can help you to raise awareness amongst your colleagues
and to give Nestlé the boot from vending machines,
shops and cafés on your site.

Please keep us
posted on your activities. We pass news on to our partners
in developing countries and they use it to show health campaigners
there that they are not alone, that people in the industrialised
world are also trying to stop Nestlé malpractice.
