Companies to boycott > Arms companies

Arms companies


Where we can have an influence as consumers is on those arms companies which also sell household goods, such as computers, cookers or fridges.

Most of us know that US arms companies will be amongst the first, and most important "winners" from any war on Iraq. They get to showcase their new weapons systems, and the longer the war continues, the more weapons have to be produced to replace those used in the killing of innocent civilians.


General Electric

As well as producing engines for several types of US and British military planes and helicopters, General Electric also produce a huge range of household appliances.

Boycotting their household appliances would be an important way to show oposition to the more deadly side of their business:
