McLibel is the story of two Londoners fighting a libel lawsuit that the McDonald’s hamburger people brought against them in English court. Without access to legal aid and being fairly broke, they defended themselves against McDonald’s phalanx of lawyers for two and a half years before the judge delivered a verdict that they had libelled McDonald’s, but also that McDonald’s had done some pretty bad things as well. Worth a watch as a companion to Super Size Me or Fast Food Nation. More information on the case is available here and here.
