Buying Berkeley

Jim Barnard and Anna Graves
Monday November 05, 2001

The Berkeley Daily Planet received this letter addressed to Dale Sanford’s TV in Berkeley. 

As you may know, the Berkeley City Council recently passed a resolution asking that the bombing of Afghanistan be ended as soon as possible. There was talk in the press about a possible boycott of Berkeley businesses as a protest against this vote.  

We want you to know that we are choosing to buy a TV at this time for your business in Berkeley in order to support the Berkeley City Council and Berkeley businesses. We believe that it is important to stop the bombing now and to be able to protest government policies without fear of economic retaliation.
