End Corporate Dominance!!! [Oct. 3rd, 2004|10:00 pm]

Hey everybody... October is End Corporate Dominance Month!!!

We are all tired of having corporations control so many aspects of our life. Let's put an end to it this month by boycotting the "dirty dozen", the 12 most dirtiest corporations. These companies exploit their workers, rob the poor, damage the environment, murder animals and humans, discriminate, monopolize the business world, and cheat and lie to us, the consumer. Why should we put up with it any longer? I know it'll be hard to boycott all these corporations, that's why I'm asking you to only do it for a month. I know I will. Thanks a bunch and good luck!!! If you have any questions, post them here.

The Dirty Dozen:

1. Exxon
2. Mcdonald's
3. Wal-Mart
4. Halliburton
5. Nike
6. Clear Channel
7. Disney
8. Coca-Cola
9. Monsanto
10. General Motors
11. Gap
12. Starbucks

Other dirty corporations are: Microsoft, AOL Time Warner, Lockheed Martin, Shell, and Abercrombie & Fitch. Feel free to boycott them also if you wish. (I realize some of these are near impossible to boycott, like Microsoft)

You can make a difference!!!

Spread the word!!! Print this out. (Word of mouth works too)

And to end on a happy note, October is also Cookie Month.

1. I go to Chevron, does Exxon own them?
2. I hate fast food in general
3. Might be hard
4. Halli-who?
5. but their shoes are the best!!!!
6. Radio sucks, haven't you heard?
7. ah-hahaha
8. Pop is the devil
9. Mons-what?
10. General Motors
11. Huh?
12. Coffee is the devil

I don't think myself or anyone else boycotting this stuff for a month is going to "put and end" to it. But if it makes you happy, go for it. Spread the word. DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER

the best bet for the "cleanest" gas is probably through conoco. halliburton is the corporation that is "rebuilding iraq" and "giving soldiers food" while it puts money into dick cheney's pocket. monsanto owns a bunch of food names.. like nutrasweet, agracetus, and roundup ready, (and the herbicide roundup), and is responsible for manufacturing agent orange and bgh, and is buddies with companies such as dupont and dow chemical. it began actually by manufacturing saccharin and introduced vanillin and caffeine to coca-cola. it then went to manufacturing plastics and synthetic fibers. gap is evil - it placed in the top 4 as one of the most unethical companies for its exploitations on human rights. (not to mention that it owns other brands/companies that also trample on human rights)

How is it impossible to boycott microsoft?

Linux is free, a lot easier to use and more widely supported. Apple finally came out with iWork, so you don't have to use Word or PowerPoint.

OpenOffice also rocks--completely free, open source implementation of M$ office.

It's totally easy to boycott microsoft. Just don't buy their shit. Download it, pirate it, steal it if you actually "need" it.
