Does Anybody Out There Think A Boycott Is A Good Idea?


Does Anybody Out There Think A Boycott Is A Good Idea?

This was the question that Aruba the Truth asked back on November 12, 2005.

However, it appears that there was already a taker on November 10, 2005 prior to their question. The National Coalition of Victims in Action urged tourists to boycott Aruba.

The National Coalition of Victims in Action, a nonprofit organization comprised of crime survivors, many of whom are parents of murdered children, is publicly supporting the Aruban boycott proposed by Alabama Governor Bob Riley. Alabama U.S. Senator Richard Shelby has also urged a voluntary boycott in order to pressure the Aruban government into cooperating more fully with the investigation of Holloway’s May 30th disappearance.

At the very least they need to know where she is so they can bring their daughter home.” In lieu of any official boycott by the State Department, the Coalition is urging all concerned Americans to voluntarily boycott vacationing in Aruba until Natalie is found.

Although there have been many newspaper editorial not supporting the voluntary boycott. There have also been several 24-7 News cable shows riding the fence on the boycott; however, it appeared many of these shows had no problem making money and ratings off the Natalee Holloway story.

The following is a blog, Michelle Says So, seems to be much in favor of a boycott. here as well.

However, so many in Aruba have stated that the boycott will not succeed and sites such as Aruba the Truth (Aruban Strategic Task Force) have linked to articles that state a boycott will have no impact. They also continue to cite articles where people will not join the cause for one reason or another. If this is the case, why does Aruba keep making this such an issue?
