DFA Calls On Progressives To Boycott BP


For DFA, the best way to target BP is to cut off the flow of profits streaming into the company from gas pumps across the country. DFA hopes to unify frustration with the company through a central boycott organized through the group's website.

BP has pledged in the past to pay for the cleanup of the spill, but the company has been universally panned in public opinion polls since the oil started flowing out of the broken well off the coast of Louisiana. Recent polls show public frustration has spread away from the company and toward the White House, which has has pledged to hold BP accountable during the spill.
