From midnight tonight, I will not be using Facebook for 24 hours (for the duration of Saturday, 1st December). More importantly, I will be setting my “status update” to explain that my 24-hour boycott is due to the company’s tax dodging.
While only a relatively small number of people will join in the boycott, many more will hear about it through their friends’ status updates. If you join in, your friends will hear about the issue.
The action has been called by Church Action on Poverty. This is a great case of using Facebook to campaign against Facebook. You can read my article about it on the New Internationalist website. You can also read more about the campaign here.
