Campaigns Urge Boycott of US Firms over Gaza Massacre

There is a campaign to boycott:

McDonald's

Starbucks

Pizza Hut

Coca Cola

Marlboro


In Lebanon, protesters angry at Israel's attack on Gaza forced the closure of a Starbucks coffee shop in Beirut.

Starbucks is over-priced.


The $3 people you pay for a Starbucks is equivalent to the daily wage of a Central American coffee picker.

Coca Cola contains phosphoric acid and too much of this is very bad for your health

Two of the Marlboro men died of lung cancer.
