My promise

I'm just one voice out here on the Internet, not more nor less. The only ways I have to actively show my discontent is the small amount of buying power I have.

My vow is as follows... I will not be spending my money on companies of which I know that are actively (or too passively)  supporting this whole debacle in Russia.

Currently, the worldwide sponsors for the Olympics are:
  • Coca-Cola
  • Atos
  • DOW
  • General Electric
  • Mc Donald's
  • Omega
  • Panasonic
  • Proctor & Gamble (many brands)
  • Samsung and
  • Visa
That's where I'm starting. And I promise to check the delivery chain of stuff I buy. It's about time they own up to their corporate and social responsibilities. Realise that they are subsidizing these morally objectionable olympic games.

To some it might sound stupid, it might not be enough. But you have to take a stand somewhere.

Anyone else joining?

I'm taking a risk with those deep links, let's hope these corporations decide to do something right in stead of coming after me.
