Boycott Fuji Products

A boycott of Fuji film and Fuji products has been called for Fuji's role in police actions in NYC. Please circulate.
Boycott Fuji

The Fuji blimp was used extensively to aerially surveille peaceful protestors at the Rep. Convention in NYC. Fuji provided the blimp to the city "free of charge."

The Fuji blimp, in conjunction with police helicopters, was used as a constant intimidating presence to dissenters exercising their protected First Amendement rights to peaceably assemble and protest US government policies. The blimp provided information to police who illegally arrested scores of people in roundups using nets and other violent "preemptive" tactics.

Please contact Fuji Corporation and let them know you are boycotting them and why. Contact information:

Thanks for this info. Seattle's late great Boycott Quarterly is much missed for its regular comprehensive list of corporate villains. It would be good to have something like that again. I'd be willing to help. I've been wanting to assemble a boycott list for distribution at our progressive tables here in Vancouver. Thanks for info about Fuji. I was at rnc/NYC but did not realize that the Fuji blimp was spying on peaceful people. Makes my blood simmer.

Not a medic

Unlike the mysterious planes that allegedly are spewing 'chemtrails', the Fuji blimp is well-marked and impossible to miss. It was present almost everywhere that a demonstration was occurring in New York City during the RNC. It was so obvious that some medics used it to guide other medics to destinations, "Just go to where the blimp is, that's where the protest is going on".

Critical Mass riders had floodlights shining down on them from the blimp as they were getting their arms broken by cops, other direct actions and those involving civil disobedience had the blimp present overhead continually. In case there was any question, the blimp was also marked with a "NYPD" logo.

What do you call it when a corporation and the military aspect of a state become indistinguishable?

It's Called ... 09.Sep.2004 13:43

It's called fascism, of course, & it is here.

Question 09.Sep.2004 20:49

to the

post. Did you say Boycott or expose FIJI were you find it.

Need a long-term boycott campaign 28.Mar.2005 16:47

Comandante Gringo blackhouse@mil.gov

I've been wanting to find a long-term committed boycott that savages corporations which support the growing fascism -- Fuji Film for starters, on account of their support for the brutal police action during the Republican National Convention in NYC 2004, and their other, ongoing ancillary police support. It's not my impression that there's anything much come of this, nor any centralized website even. Maybe someone could post up-to-date information on this?

We need one, two, MANY mass, long-term, serious boycotts of those corporations, organizations and individuals who think "fascism today is A-OK!"...
