July 28, 2018 Protest
Why? Because the ABI is a shell non-profit organization with the direct mission of fighting to keep the legal blood alcohol content while driving at .08, despite multiple case studies and statistics that prove lowering the legal BAC would save thousands of lives per year. See the report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for more information.
The American Beverage Institute, which is managed by Richard "Rick" Berman's Berman & Co., takes millions of dollars from these big businesses and uses it to create false reports and media in order to confuse the issues and misinform the masses - all because the alcohol industry is more interested in protecting their bottom line than saving the lives of innocent people. In other words, they put their profits over people.
Rick Berman, who proudly touts the nickname 'Dr. Evil' and proclaims himself as "the industry's weapon of mass destruction," is known for aggressive communications campaigns and is hired by companies to attack consumer, safety, and environmental groups.
The film crew for Letters to Liam, as well as Marcus, Mishel, and Nico, will be demonstrating at the front door of Berman & Co - because people should matter more than profits. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
