Update: Nestles "Creating Shared Value Forum"

A quick update on the Nestle "Creating Shared Value Forum" that I posted about earlier this week
LIVE: Nestle Forum - put your questions in NOW‏!!!

According to Mike Brady of Baby Milk Action, not a single question regarding the marketing of Nestles infant formulas was answered.

Send a message to Nestle and spread the word

All postings regarding Nestlé's marketing of baby milk were censored at the company's Creating Shared Value Forum yesterday, so with the management refusing to engage with the public, we need to increase the number of messages going to Nestlé. Baby Milk Action is making this easier with new features on this website. You will find you can now easily share links to pages of interest with your friends. Try it out on our new film clip about Nestlé's strategy of promoting baby milk with the claim that it 'protects' babies, even though it knows babies fed on baby milk are more likely to become sick than breastfed babies and, in conditions of poverty, more likely to die. The page includes a form for sending a message to Nestlé calling for it to stop this practice. See:
When you've sent your message, why not pass on the link using the 'share this link' feature on the left, or the link at the bottom of the page, where you can add a personalised message. You can also share the page on Facebook.

So please share this information far and wide.  Send Nestle- and the media- a message that we will not be ignored, nor will we go away!!
