The Role of Boycotts in the Fight for Peace: "Sporadic and spontaneous boycotts, local in form, have been taking place in cities throughout the globe. National Public Radio (U.S.) reports that thousands of Europeans, repulsed by the election of Bush, are refusing to buy American goods. One placard in a Paris window says: 'Promote peace. Don't buy American.' According to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh, Europe is simmering. 'You're going to see American profits disappear. American corporations are going to be in big trouble. It's going to be a mantra not to buy American. All our major manufacturers are reporting major slowdowns in Europe. You're going to see the dollar disappear.'"
