Boycott the Koch Brothers' Products

The Koch Brothers use their financial empire to back all sorts of political activities harmful to U.S. citizens and in fact to the rest of the world. Some of the things that they actively push or that their money supports include:

●Attempts to destroy Medicare and to limit access to affordable health care for U.S. citizens.
●Attempts to lower and eliminate clean air standards and to eliminate other policies designed to protect people and the environment from the effects of oil spills and pollution.
●Attempts to eliminate rights for U.S. workers, to end the ability of U.S. citizens to collectively bargain for their contracts, and to destroy union rights and unions themselves.
●Political indoctrination of their employees in Koch Brothers’ political interests, and pressure, through group meetings and constant work place announcements, to make their employees vote for the candidates that the Koch Brothers support.
●Huge financial support for political candidates whose goals are to eliminate all government checks on corporate power and to support all the practices listed above.

However, you can take one small step towards reducing their damaging influence on the world. Don’t buy Koch Brothers products, and recommend to others not to buy them also.
