Right wing call to boycot Citgo
02 Feb 2006
The American Family Association (http://www.afa.net/), the people who brought you StopLiberalJudges.com and NoGayMarriage.com, is calling for a boycott of Citgo based on Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's criticisms of U.S. imperialism.
Citgo, the state owned Venezuelan oil company, has recently been providing discount heating oil to low income families in Massachussetts and throughout the North East http://boston.indymedia.org/feature/display/49315) and has offered discount fuel to Chicago area transit system
(http://chicago.indymedia.org/newswire/display_any/68186)

AFA has posted an online form letter at https://secure.afa.net/afa/afapetition/takeaction.asp?id=182, this form letter reads:

"Just a note to let you know that I will not be shopping at Citgo. I don't want my money going to someone who has vowed to bring down my government."

The form is editable so if you support socially responsible industry you can express your thanks for Citgo meeting the needs of Americans where American industry and government has failed, perhaps:

"I would like to thank Citgo and the people of Venezuela for providing heating oil subsities for the poor people of the North East when the US oil companies only looked to their increased profits."
