A reader recently forwarded an email chain in which she'd asked Rainbow Grocery to boycott Eden Foods, a Catholic-owned organic food corporation that is Hobby Lobbying its way into not paying for insurance on drugs that "prevent procreation." Rainbow declined the petition for the most San Francisco reasons ever: A vote was held by the worker-owned, democratically-run cooperative, and the boycott did not pass by a two-thirds vote.
And what of our reader's heartfelt, impassioned plea for women's rights and the non-personhood of corporations that two-thirds of Rainbow Grocery Cooperative's heartless members voted to pass over?
Can I assume that you guys are now going to stop carrying Eden products? I sure hope so.
