You may have heard of the "McLibel Two
", the pair of Brits who, as part of a group called London Greenpeace (not affiliated with Greenpeace International, by the by), published a flier
decrying the nutritional and corporate values of McDonalds, and who subsequently lost a libel action brought against them by the corporation. It took a few years, but The European Court of Human Rights has overturned the decision
, based on the fact that the two did not receive legal aid assistance during the trial (where they represented themselves).
