Boycott America Movement Grows
By George Anderson
Consumers and businesses overseas are demonstrating their objections to the
US war in Iraq by boycotting American brands.
In Germany, a small number of restaurants have stopped selling Coca-Cola, according
An owner a restaurant in Berlin told Reuters, “We wanted to do something
to express our annoyance. We want to hit America where it hurts — in their
wallets. None of the customers have complained. On the contrary, most thought
it was a great idea.”
Other demonstrations against US commercial interests have taken place from
France to Indonesia. Web sites such as www.consumers-against-war.de
are seeking to rally support for the boycott movement.
Moderator’s Comment: How should US consumers and businesses
react economically to the growing anti-Americanism in other countries?
America is called a bully by those opposed to its war
The restaurants in Berlin would do well to remember that
if it wasn’t for the US bully, they would be living in a society ruled by Nazis
They would also do well to remember that Josef Stalin
is Saddam Hussein’s political role model. [George
