Protestors picketed Starbucks in Edinburgh and Glasgow city centres on Saturday 20th November. Demonstrators served up free zapatista coffee, proclaiming solidarity with the rebel indigenous movement in Mexico and with New York Starbucks workers in dispute with the coffee giant. Activists from the Industrial Workers of the World, Edinburgh-Chiapas Solidarity Group and Glasgow Zapatista Solidarity distributed leaflets and displayed placards exposing Starbucks. Passers-by clustered round the stalls to receive warming cups of zapatista coffee, to get more information, and to sign up for contact lists.
