PLEASE ACT NOW: Boycott for Peace - let the corporations know! (english)
19 Apr 2003
Modified: 21 Apr 2003
A little sleuthing on Google gave me these individual emails (real people) for major companies being targeted in the Boycott. These are the VPs, CEOs, and spin doctors of the greedy creeps that donate their dollars to Bush and his cronies year after year.

Just spend the five minutes it takes to email these lovely folks, and we'll have 'em all shaking in their $800 cowboy boots (see my sample letter for inspiration).

Sample letter

(please
customize - make it personal!):
 
Dear <name>
I am writing this letter in order to

let you
know that I no longer intend to buy any of your products so long as

the U.S.
continues its reckless international policies and continues to

destabilize
International accords and relationships. Your Company made

significant donations
to the current members of this administration who chose to start a

war on
foreign soil without UN approval.
While this is not directly your

doing, I have
chosen to exercise my power as a consumer. This is how it works:

you made
your choices, Bush made his choices, and now I'm making mine.


Please, withdraw your financial and

political
support from this administration. In 2003-4, I ask you to

reconsider the nature
and distribution of your donations, including PACs. If Bush is

reelected with
your support, I will continue to boycott your products. In this

event, it
is likely that widespread boycotts of your products will continue

to grow.

Sincerely,
<include full name, city/state/country, phone number>

new economy (english)
21 Apr 2003
true, the power is in the cumulative movement of capital, and consumer spending (as well as investment) plays a significant role in the total picture. But merely boycotting the giant corporate powers is not enough. We must establish a new network, a new strategy, and a new economy. Indeed this must be done in more of a quiet way, simultaneous with any public boycott. Think of our lives now dependent on our conscious efforts to make DAMN SURE that we are building a new economy among those who we trust. The money must flow surely and quietly and steadily... out of corporate hands, and back into our own hands!

does anyone remember the cooperative? as a kid in the 70s it seemed perfectly normal to me to spend two afternoons or evenings a week at the coop, measuring bulk items into smaller pre-priced packages. unloading and stocking shelves. washing bottles. etc. now, in our hectic corporate rat-race, people just "don't have the time."

well, now we must FIND THE TIME. re-invent the coop. pay cash to your own local merchants. build up a responsible network of like minded individuals, who understand that the only way out of hell is to rebuild our own world. stop using your credit card. bring back local exchange between artisans, unions, and community groups. remember, the Black Panthers set up free breakfasts for kids in grade school. we've got to start again. it is a long road. but worth traveling.
