In todays Expressen.se they are chasing the Cookie monster in a hostage situation. A man has stolen a cookie companies logo outside their head office. On a post card with a person dressed as a cookie monster (immitating a version of the cookie monster from the Muppets) fake eating the logo plate. The demand, according to Expressen, was that the cookie company donated cookies to children’s hospitals and some money to one animal shelter.
The company has now said, on their Facebook page, that they will donate 52000 cookies to charity.
I am not saying people should take hostages to get companies to donate to charity. I think there are other ways to get them to donate. But I am not saying it wasn’t innovative. But I would rather chosen to demonstrate as a cookie monster outside the company and asking them to donate. Really outside any company. Why not stadge poverty a la slum outside all companies that use slave workers in Asia? Just an idea. Ask for permission from the police first. Do it legally. Then when you get permit. Visualize the problems. Make the companies higher the worker salaries so they can surive on their salary from a 40 hour week.
A girl, working as a volonteer at a orphanage, got pains after dining out at a Indian restaurant. They went home to the place where they stayed and the Swedish girl died. It´s suspected that she was poisioned, according to Aftonbladet.se. The authoroties are now saying it could take up to five years to investigate and make an autopsy, according to the article. I am saying, the autopsy can me made in Sweden and much faster. Please release the body, it´s disrespectful to keep a Swedish body hostage in a foreign country far away from the family. It´s inhumane. It´s disrespect to all of the Swedish population. If I die abroud I want my body returned home as fast as possible. I have been in India. Imagine if I would have died there… and not been allowed to go home? What a terrible thing, if I would have known that I would never have gone to India.
I think Indian authooroties should be ashamed. People even got home earlier after the tsunami. I think it´s terrible. Release the body to the Swedish mother. She needs closure. Please.
