Take Action

The aim of is to raise awareness of corporate abuse, and to serve as a catalyst for direct action against corporate power.

Ethical Consumerism is an important movement toward corporate reform, through which individuals recognize their own role in systems of oppression, and take personal steps toward resistance and  positive change.

However, the problem of unchecked corporate power is systemic and goes far beyond the scope of any single boycot or campaign.

Alliance Boots Holdings makes an even bigger footprint in Europe's retail and wholesale drug markets since the UK's #1 drugstore chain, Boots the Chemists (BTC), combined its operations with that of drug wholesaler and retailer Alliance UniChem. Formed by the 2006 merger of the two firms, Alliance Boots Holdings is Europe's leading drug wholesaler, serving more than 140,000 pharmacies, hospitals, and clinics in about 16 countries, including China. The health and beauty group operates more than 3,200 pharmacies in the UK and more than a half a dozen European and Asian countries. US private equity giant Kohlberg Kravis Roberts took the company private in mid-2007 in a deal valued at about $22.2 billion.]
