1. The organizations original mission is revenge. The mission should be evolved into "rob from the rich- give to the poor," because that is the main reason the Merrymen were formed and gathered like-minded men who wanted to rob from the rich and give to the poor. It is hard to decide to change the mission statement and to what. Many aspects will have to be taken into consideration.

A little less than three years ago, however, the quiet storefront made front pages around the world. During the world Trade Organization talks in November,1999,protester flooded Seattle’s streets, and among their targets was Starbucks, a symbol, to them, of free-market capitalism run amok, another multinational out to blanket the earth. Amid the crowds of protesters and riot police were black-masked anarchists who trashed the store, leaving its windows smashed and its tasteful green-and-white décor smelling of tear gas instead of espresso. Says an angry Schulz: ”It’s hurtful. I think people are ill-informed. It’s very difficult to protest against a can of Coke , a bottle of Pepsi, or a can of Folgers. Starbucks is both this ubiquitous brand and a place where you can go and break a window...
