bm139 Boycott Hits of Yesterday and Today

by bicyclemark

In the conclusion of my last podcast, I threw out the cynical question if there had been a successful boycott since the Montgomery Bus boycott.. 50 years ago. As various listeners and Max and Stacey from Karmbanque pointed out, there have – of course – been many successful boycotts since then. In this program I look briefly at select boycotts from the past decades and consider who initiated them, what were their goals, and how successful they were.
