CAGP: Greenpeace Menyerang Kolonel Sanders

WASHINGTON, 26 Mei 2012 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ —

– Kentucky Fried Chicken Harus Menolak Kampanye Pemerasan

Dalam serangan yang berani terhadap ikon dan perusahaan Amerika,
Greenpeace telah melancarkan kampanye pemerasan terbarunya terhadap Kolonel
Sanders dan Kentucky Fried Chicken, dengan melontarkan tuduhan yang tidak masuk
akal terhadap catatan lingkungan perusahaan tersebut. Sayangnya, ini hanyalah
contoh lain dari kampanye kotor Greenpeace terhadap perusahaan Amerika; merek
KFC dan Yum! tidak boleh harus menyerah pada pemerasan Greenpeace.

“Perilaku mengerikan dari Greenpeace ini bukan hal baru, tetapi sudah
saatnya fitnahan mereka menghadapi respon hukum yang serius daripada publisitas
cuma-cuma yang biasa dari media. Tindakan harus memiliki konsekuensi dan
pejabat publik harus menyelidiki campur tangan Greenpeace dalam operasi bisnis
KFC. Tindakan hukum harus dipertimbangkan oleh otoritas hukum di Kentucky
terhadap Greenpeace atas upayanya yang berulang-ulang untuk merusak reputasi
KFC, mengganggu kontrak bisnis swasta dan membahayakan puluhan ribu pekerjaan
di Amerika,” kata Andrew Langer, juru bicara Consumers Alliance for Global
Prosperity.

“Meskipun klaim ini berasal dari Greenpeace, setiap produk yang digunakan
oleh KFC berasal dari sumber yang berkesinambungan. KFC telah membantah tuduhan
Greenpeace dan menyatakan bahwa produknya tidak mengandung serat Kayu Campuran
Tropis – Mixed Tropical Hardwood (MTH). Dan ini bukan pertama kalinya
Greenpeace kurang kredibel dengan klaim pengujian seratnya. Tahun lalu,
Greenpeace melibatkan Integrated Paper Services (IPS) untuk menguji serat di
Indonesia; CEO IPS menegaskan bahwa pihaknya tidak dapat menguji dari negara
mana serat itu berasal, juga apakah serat tersebut didaur ulang.”

“Selain itu, KFC berupaya keras memperkenalkan wadah yang dapat digunakan
kembali untuk banyak menu mereka, wadah yang akan baik bagi konsumen dan ramah
lingkungan. Sekali lagi Greenpeace menempatkan agenda anti-konsumen di depan
keluarga pekerja yang dilayani dengan baik oleh bisnis yang pro-rakyat.”

Dalam menyerang KFC, Greenpeace melancarkan kampanye keji terhadap
perusahaan Amerika yang lebih fiksi daripada fakta; Merek KFC dan Yum! tidak
boleh menyerah pada pemerasan berdalih lingkungan yang dilancarkan Greenpeace.

gerilyanya. Klik di sini untuk melihat catatan penangkapan terakhir Greenpeace

CAGP: Greenpeace Attacks Colonel Sanders

WASHINGTON, May 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ —

– Kentucky Fried Chicken Must Reject Blackmail Campaign

In a brazen attack against an American icon and job creator, Greenpeace has launched its latest blackmail campaign against Colonel Sanders and Kentucky Fried Chicken, leveling absurd accusations against the company’s environmental record. Unfortunately, this is but another example of Greenpeace’s smear campaign against American companies and job creators; KFC and Yum! brands must not give into the blackmail of Greenpeace.

“This egregious behavior from Greenpeace is nothing new, but it’s high time that their smears were met with a serious legal response rather than the usual free publicity from the media. Actions must have consequences and public officials should investigate Greenpeace’s interference in KFC’s business operations. Legal action should be considered by legal authorities in Kentucky against Greenpeace for its repeated attempts to damage the reputation of KFC, interfere with private business contracts and jeopardizing tens of thousands of American jobs,” said Andrew Langer, spokesman for the Consumers Alliance for Global Prosperity.

“Despite the claims coming from Greenpeace, every product used by KFC is derived from sustainable sources. KFC has already rebutted Greenpeace’s allegations and state that its products do not contain Mixed Tropical Hardwood (MTH) fiber. And this is not the first time Greenpeace has been less than credible with its fiber testing claims. Greenpeace last year engaged the Integrated Paper Services (IPS) to test Indonesian fiber; IPS’ CEO confirmed that it couldn’t test which countries the fiber came from, nor if they were recycled.”

“Moreover, KFC is taking great pains to introduce reusable containers for many of their menu items, containers which will be both consumer and environmentally friendly. Once again Greenpeace is putting its anti-consumer agenda ahead of the working families being well-served by a business that is pro-people.”

In attacking KFC, Greenpeace is running a scurrilous campaign against an American company that is more fiction than fact; KFC and Yum! Brands must not cave to Greenpeace’s greenmail. Greenpeace has been arrested numerous times over the past year for its guerrilla tactics.
