This is an online resource center for boycott campaigns against war.

At this time (March, 2006) most of the campaigns are aimed towards U.S. and British corporations as a protest against the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

The Boycott War campaign is a means by which the various boycott campaigns can symbolically link together sharing together logos, goals, and strategies.

Each local and national campaign decides for itself to what extent the materials here are relevant to their own situation, needs, and ambitions.

Often the criteria in choosing targets is either a general boycott of anything that says "Made in USA" (or Made in Great Britain) or more specific boycotts aimed at corporations that are either 1) connected to the military industry 2) connected to the politicians that promote war or 3) are huge transnational corporations that should anyways be boycotted.

The following materials are a service to organizers and participants of Boycott War campaigns in order to share information on who does what and how to boycott them once you have chosen your target.
