Target Ain’t People: A Musical Protest

Posted in Arts and Entertainment, Humor, News by Bob Higgins on September 24, 2010

When Target spent $150,000 to support a Minnesota politician who favors anti-gay legislation, thousands of people decided to boycott the big-box chain. But instead of simply shopping elsewhere, these activists turned to the popular musical-style TV show, GLEE, for inspiration. With choreography, a catchy tune, and Target accessories as props, they took shoppers and employees by surprise.  From Yes Magazine.

Target Ain’t People

I read about the Target campaign contributions and resulting boycott a couple weeks ago but I missed this wonderful video.

I’ve always admired agit-prop protests and considered them to be among the most attention getting and effective ways to point out the truth about official or private wrong doing.

If you agree that corporations aren’t people with human rights and the right to control our public affairs by buying government, its institutions and the people we pay to represent our interests, take a minute and to the petition at Target Boycott.Org
