75 Boycott and Protest Innovations

From iTunes Boycotts to Profane Protests

— December 29, 2009 — Social Good
America is a nation built on the masses standing up in order to make a change. Holding meetings, building up collective boycotts, protesting the current way of life and, in extreme cases, revolting against the powers that be, have lead to the current state of our union… until that inevitably changes, of course.

From iTunes boycotts to profane protests, check out the 75 boycott and protest innovations. Somebody get me a poster board and markers.
