Economic Boycott as Nonviolence
Johan Galtung, TFF Associate & Transcend
There is much talk of boycott of US products all over the world, and, particularly in Germany and France, people seem much less inclined to buy US products after the illegal invasion of Iraq. Interestingly, there is no talk about boycotting English or British products, but much talk about Israel. The backdrop is the successful action against the apartheid regime in South Africa, against Deutsche Shell in the North Sea, and againstthe French nuclear testing in Polynesia; all as parts of the political scene of the 1990s. There is space for revival!
