Boycotts as a Form of Non-Violent Protest

I steadfastly refuse to use this space for politically charged opinion, since there is nothing at all extraordinary about that.  But since I live in Arizona, I probably have to comment on the large brouhaha currently boiling over the new immigration law.  Many of the people that I know have asked about it.

So here is what I DO find extraordinary:  those with the opposing viewpoint have found a hard hitting method of communication.  Money.  An effective boycott is an excellent way to get someone’s attention.  This article from MSNBC describes the details.

Power to the people – to vote with their dollars.
