My mum forwarded this to me via email:
Please join me in sending an UnValentine’s Day card and boycotting Terry’s All Gold. The parent company of Terry’s – Altria (formerly British American Tobacco) – is a company that has given $6.8 million in recent years to the Republican Party and George Bush; funded extremist right-wing groups; and lobbied against proposals to regulate corporations that profit at the expense of our health, environment and human rights. Terry’s All Gold is the biggest selling boxed chocolate in the UK. Send an UnValentine’s Day card by visiting http://www.owos.info/unvalentine/ to let Altria know exactly why you are doing it. Thank you for your support.
Terry’s, as you may be aware, are based in my home town of York and their factory is only a few blocks away from where I used to go to school (although I gather they’re in the process of closing it). York is also home to Nestle Rowntree, another confectionary company with very questionable ethical position (the ground of York City FC was recently renamed ‘KitKat Crescent’). We’re not doing that well, although on the plus side .
