Millions of Americans are joining the Boycott France campaign. NewsMax.com is leading the Boycott France campaign because American lives and security is at stake. France has every right to disagree with America. But France has moved from simple dissent to active hostility toward America.

French President Chirac warned East European nations that if they side with America, France will oppose their membership in the European Union.

This week, William Safire reported in the New York Times that France has been secretly helping to arm Iraq -- and has been helping Iraq build long range missiles. These same missiles may soon be used against American soldiers.

Just as France is exercising its right to disagree, Americans can exercise their right to boycott -- and avoid helping companies and countries that do no stand with America.

The following companies are subject to boycott:

** Air France. Air Liquide. Airbus. Alcatel. Allegra (allergy medication). Aqualung (including: Spirotechnique, Technisub, US Divers, and SeaQuest). AXA Advisors.

Here's why we SHOULD NOT boycott France... (english)
20 Mar 2003
This is short movie that examines why it's crazy for Americans to boycott the French...

Personally i think it is great that France is taking such a strong stance against Amerikkka. Finally someone is willing to stand up to the big bully that is us. I wish other countries that strongly disagreed with our screwed up foreign policies would have the balls to do the same. Maybe then something would stop this out-of-control war machine. We've already spread enough undeserved hate against France with our stupid "freedom fries" and what-not (they're not french in the first place.) It seems that rampant patriotism is still out of control, even within the anti-war movement. For shame.

Be Safe,

What ever happened to land of the free. Even though we knew it was simply propoganda all along, now we see our facist government and their deluded followers blatantly attacking free speech everywhere.

Sieg Heil,
Americans boycott America! (english)
