Boycott

Boycott

To Boycott (derived from a campaign of ostracism on Captain Boycott) is a term used to describe abstain from or act together, or abstaining from using, buying, or dealing with as an expression of protest or disfavour as a means of coercion.

Boycotting continues to be seen by many as an effective strategy, and it is employed in many forms. Most forms of boycott are short term and used to rectify a single event of injustice. However, some forms of boycott are long term and are used as part of larger organizational or structural form of protest. Examples include systematic disinvestment, such as the international call for the withdrawal of businesses from South Africa during the Apartheid era or Gandhi that boycotted the English textile industry.
