#CancelBolsonaro

We write as concerned citizens and LGBTQ allies to urge Marriott and Host Hotels and Resorts, the owner of the New York Marriott Marquis, to cancel the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 “Person of the Year” Gala Dinner honoring the notorious homophobe and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, scheduled to take place on May 14, 2019. President Bolsonaro has an extremely disturbing record of bigotry, misogyny, racism, and xenophobia. Among other things, he once said he “would be incapable of loving a homosexual son” and that he would rather his son die than be gay. In addition, President Bolsonaro once said a Brazilian Congresswoman was “not worth raping” because “she is very ugly.” Given President Bolsonaro’s sordid record of public comments, it is appalling that a business in New York City would host an event in support of him. We are deeply concerned about the message such an event would send to New Yorkers, particularly LGBTQ young people, many of whom are struggling with their identity and are watching his remarks against them be celebrated. By hosting this event, Marriott is giving President Bolsonaro a platform that rewards his outrageous behavior. We do not believe that Marriott and Host Hotels can claim to be “responsible corporate citizens” if they force Marriott Marquis employees to work for an event that honors a well-documented bigot. These corporations still have time to prove to the LGBTQ community and allied New Yorkers that hatred has no place in this city and state. We urge Marriott and Host Hotels to cancel the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 “Person of the Year” Gala at the Marriott Marquis immediately. We will be watching.

Force NFL Players to respect the practices of the country that provides their lifestyles

The people of the United States provide NFL Players exorbitant lifestyles to play a game for our entertainment and enjoyment. However, they have decided to use their workplace to wage protest against the very symbols and practices that are at the backbone of the system that allows them such excess simply to play a game. Ordinary citizens that did the same in their workplace would suffer disciplinary actions up to, and including, termination of their employment. These are the people that buy the tickets and merchandise that allow for NFL players to live lives of excess that make the lives of their supporters seem like those of mere peasants. We are calling for a boycott of all companies and their subsidiaries that support the NFL Players Association until the organization institutes and enforces policies to force players to stand for our national anthem and national observances as well as enact disciplinary actions that are strictly enforced for those that continue to violate the trust of the country that provides their lifestyle. The people of this effort recognize and respect the value of our rights to protest for the changes we seek in our world but also recognize that the players of the NFL are no different, or better, than the rest of the society they entertain by playing a game. We simply ask that they do it on their time. We seek an immediate and unrelenting boycott of the following companies that support the NFL Players Association with further action to follow if our demands are not met. The NFLPA sponsors are: Anheuser-Busch Barclaycard US Bose Bridgestone Campbell's Soup Company Castrol Courtyard Marriott Dairy Management, Inc. (Fuel Up to Play 60) Dannon Extreme Networks FedEx Frito-Lay Gatorade Hyundai Motor America Mars Snackfood Microsoft Nationwide News America Papa John's Pepsi Procter & Gamble Quaker Verizon Visa USAA Join us as we refuse to spend our hard earned money on the products and services brought to market by these companies and their vast network of subsidiaries.For more information on our cause or to obtain a complete listing of the network of companies and subsidiaries responsible for supporting the NFL Players Association please visit our Facebook page at The Edge Radio.

Marriott: End Chicken Cruelty

If Marriott ran its hotels the way its egg suppliers run their factory farms, they would be filthy, small, overcrowded, and unsafe. Marriott brands itself as an upscale and luxurious hotel company, but it has a dark secret. Millions of egg-laying hens throughout Marriott’s global supply chain suffer in cruel cages. These cages are so small and packed with birds that the hens can’t do anything that is natural or important to them. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates. Hundreds of companies around the world are ditching cages. Global commitments to go cage-free are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Wyndham Worldwide, Accor Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Hilton Hotels, Unilever, Nestle, Lidl,  Aldi, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez, and Compass Group. Even low-end fast food companies and US prisons are moving away from this horrible practice. Marriott has recognized that cages are inhumane and outdated. In 2013, it promised customers that it would go cage-free by 2015, and Marriott received public praise for the pledged move to higher welfare standards. Three years after that deadline, hens are still suffering for Marriott. Customers are tired of false promises and hollow commitments. Even Marriott’s own brand, Starwood, has made a global commitment to completely phase out cages by 2020. Marriott says: “How we do business is as important as the business we do.” Marriott needs to start prioritizing how it does business. It needs to follow-through on its commitments and work to meet basic animal welfare standards. It’s time for Marriott to make good on its promise to finally go 100% cage-free globally. Please sign this petition to tell Marriott that you won’t be staying at any of their hotels until it stops supporting this egregious animal abuse.

Stop wiping! Start washing #InstallShattaf in bathrooms around the world in 2019

Arabic / English You might want to take a seat while reading this.  There’s an issue that has been in headlines all over the world this year and needs to be addressed immediately - Do you #WashVsWipe? Join our campaign that demands that major hotel chains, airports, restaurants, gas stations and retail outlets across the world to #InstallShattaf Pronounced, Shat-taf, it is a hose with a nozzle that sprays water for post-toilet usage.  Think of it as a shower head, but upside down. You wash your hands with water, you wash your feet with water, and you wash your food with water - why would you not wash “that” area with water?! Using water to wash up after using the restroom is common culture habit in Eastern countries from the Middle East to parts of the greater Asian nations including India, Indonesia, Japan and Korea.  The usage of toilet paper alone is inefficient and simply not enough to sanitize yourself. Populations that collectively make up almost 1/3 of the world use a form of water to clean up, whether it be a sprayer connected to a toilet seat, a jug of water, a hose or more commonly a separate bidet basin.  The production of toilet paper is killing the environment as it takes 37 gallons of water to manufacture a single roll. We need to change that! But we need your help. Watch the video and sign this petition.  We need to get major hotel chains and airlines to acknowledge this as a huge hygienic problem and #installshattaf before the end of the year!   We need your votes to activate this petition.

Marriott: Pon fin a la Crueldad Hacia las Gallinas

     Si Marriott dirigiera sus hoteles de la misma forma que sus proveedores de huevo dirigen sus granjas industriales, serían sucios, pequeños, abarrotados e inseguros. La cadena Marriott se jacta de ser de alto nivel, con hoteles de lujo, pero tiene un oscuro secreto: Millones de gallinas ponedoras sufren en grotescas y sucias jaulas  a lo largo de la cadena de abasto global de los hoteles Marriott.  Éstas jaulas son tan pequeñas y están tan saturadas, que las gallinas no pueden hacer ninguna de sus actividades naturales o desarrollar comportamientos que son importantes para ellas. Muy frecuentemente, partes de su cuerpo son atrapadas entre las rejas, lo que resulta en huesos fracturados, provoca deformidades y pérdida severa de plumas, además de mucho dolor. Algunas gallinas, exhaustas o incapaces de moverse, son atacadas a muerte debido al estrés en el que viven, por sus propias compañeras de jaula. Es por esto que cientos de compañías a lo largo del mundo están dejando atrás el uso de jaulas. Se están realizando compromisos globales para ser libres-de-jaula por parte de algunas de las compañías más grandes e importantes del mundo, la lista incluye a los hoteles Wyndham, Accor, InterContinental,  así como grandes compañías de alimentos como Unilever, Nestlé, Lidl, Aldi, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez y Compass Group. Hasta las cadenas low-end de comida rápida y las cárceles en los Estados Unidos ya están dejando atrás éstas terribles prácticas. Marriott ha reconocido que las jaulas son inhumanas y obsoletas. En el 2013, le prometieron a sus clientes que serían libres-de-jaulas para 2015, y la cadena Marriott recibió gran reconocimiento público por haber realizado ese compromiso de evolucionar hacia mejores estándares de bienestar animal. Tres años después de la fecha límite, las gallinas continúan sufriendo a causa de Marriott. Sus clientes están cansándose de falsas promesas y compromisos vacíos. Incluso Starwood, una marca de Marriott, ya ha hecho ya un compromiso global para excluir por completo las jaulas de su cadena de suministro para el año 2020. Marriott refiere que: “La forma en que hacemos negocios es tan importante como los negocios mismos.”  Los hoteles Marriott necesitan replantear la manera en la que hacen negocios. Necesitan darle cumplimiento y seguimiento a sus propios compromisos y alinearse con los estándares básicos actuales de bienestar animal a nivel mundial. Es tiempo de que Marriott cumpla con su promesa de por fin liberarse al 100% de las atroces jaulas, en todo el mundo. Porfavor ¡firma esta petición para decirle a Marriott que no te hospedarás en ninguno de sus hoteles hasta que dejen de apoyar este atroz abuso hacia los animales!

Marriott: End Hen Cruelty

Marriott: End Hen Cruelty   If Marriott ran its hotels the way its egg suppliers run their factory farms, they would be filthy, small, overcrowded, and dangerous. Marriott brands itself as an upscale and luxurious hotel company, but it has a dark secret. Millions of egg-laying hens throughout Marriott’s global supply chain suffer in cruel cages.  Caged hens farmed for their eggs are trapped in huge sheds in metal cages, crammed together on sloping wire floors, unable to open their wings, stand fully upright, dust bathe or move freely. Each hen has little more floor space than the size of a magazine in which to live her entire life. Her body parts can get caught in the caging, which can result in broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates. The confinement of hens in cages is one of the most extreme methods of legalised animal cruelty in New Zealand.   Hundreds of companies around the world are ditching cage eggs. They are listening to caring people who want an end to cage cruelty. Global commitments to go cage-free are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Wyndham Worldwide, Accor Hotels, InterContinental Hotels, Hilton Hotels, Unilever, Nestlé, Lidl, Aldi, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez, and Compass Group. Even budget fast food companies are moving away from this horrible practice.   Marriott has recognised that cages are inhumane and outdated. In 2013, it promised customers that it would go cage-free by 2015, and Marriott received public praise for the pledged move to higher welfare standards. However, three years after that deadline has passed hens are still suffering for Marriott. Customers are tired of false promises and hollow commitments. Even Marriott’s own brand, Starwood, has made a global commitment to completely phase out cage eggs by 2025.   Marriott says: “How we do business is as important as the business we do.”  Marriott needs to start prioritising how it does business. It needs to follow through on its commitments and work to meet basic animal welfare standards. It’s time for Marriott to make good on its 2013 promise and finally go 100% cage-free globally.    Please sign this petition to tell Marriott that you won’t be staying at any of its hotels until it stops supporting this appalling and unnecessary animal abuse.

Marriott: End Hen Cruelty

Marriott International is committed to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs (shell and liquid) throughout our operations for all owned, managed and franchised properties by the end of 2025. This is part of a comprehensive set of goals under our Serve 360 sustainability & social impact platform. Marriott International publicly reports our progress towards this commitment. Specifically, in our most recent Serve 360 report, we shared the progress made by our managed Courtyard-branded hotels to source more than 75% of eggs from cage-free suppliers. We will continue to report our progress annually through our Serve 360 report. We will also publish our goals and major progress against those goals in multiple languages beginning in 2019.

Support Erin Andrews, Boycott the Marriott

We would first like to say that Marriott International remains sympathetic to the ordeal that Erin Andrews went through because of Michael David Barrett’s criminal conduct. There has been much confusion in the media and public conversations about our responsibility for what happened and our involvement in the trial. Here are the facts: • Ms. Andrews was the victim of a terrible crime while she was a guest at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Michael David Barrett videotaped her in her guestroom while she was undressed and posted the footage on the internet. Barrett was arrested and served a jail sentence for his crime. • Ms. Andrews later sued our company, the owner of the hotel (which is not Marriott), the franchisee and Michael David Barrett. Our legal team argued that Marriott International had nothing to do with what happened to Ms. Andrews; the Court agreed and completely dismissed Marriott from the case. • We are not and have not been a part of this trial. This trial is between Ms. Andrews and the owner of the hotel, the franchisee and Michael David Barrett. • Our legal team is not among those that have questioned Ms. Andrews during this trial. Additionally, the witness who allegedly viewed the video of Ms. Andrews in a Nashville restaurant earlier this week is a representative for the owner and not a Marriott employee. We continue to be sensitive to the serious nature of this matter and remain committed to the safety and comfort of our guests.

Stop using goose down that may have been cruelly collected

See PETA’s comments on Marriott’s use of down-alternative products: (www.peta.org/blog/leading-retailers-are-ditching-down-thanks-to-peta/) We have had a number of hotel brands, including AC and Moxy, which have down-alternative (synthetic) products as a brand standard. In our Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites and TownePlace Suites brands we provide down-alternative fill exclusively in the blankets and comforters with 50% of the pillows being down-alternative. In our other brands down-alternative products are always available upon request. We have enhanced our policies and training in order to provide a guest room that is free of any down products when requested. Our research continues to show the vast majority of guests prefer down bedding. We will continue to evaluate our product offerings balancing, amongst other things, sustainability and consumer preferences. Please see our 2015 Responsible Sourcing Report to learn more about our efforts. (www.marriott.com/Multimedia/PDF/CorporateResponsibility/2015_Reports/2015_ResponsibleSourcing.pdf)

Stop using goose down that may have been cruelly collected

For some time now, we have had down-alternative (synthetic) pillows, blankets and comforters as a brand standard in a number of our hotel brands. And, in all our brands, we continue to offer upon request a guest room that is free of any down products. In our luxury and lifestyle brands, down alternative products are also available. However, our research shows the vast majority of guests of these brands expect their room offerings to be similar to those in their homes; their preference is down bedding. We have engaged with organizations interested in our providing more down-alternative products to guests so we can continually evaluate our product offerings balancing, amongst other things, sustainability and consumer preferences.
