Of course, every consumer should actually boycott stuff. Because that’s consumer preference and that’s what controls the producers. And you can and should boycott over whatever issue enters your pretty little head: it’s your money, your consumption, you go for it.
However, it might be worth a little thought over what one boycotts and why. For example, say there’s an “illegal” factory in Israeli occupied Palestine should you boycott the production of that factory on the grounds that doing so will make the Palestinians better off?
Hundreds of Palestinian workers are now unemployed after the factory where they worked in a West Bank settlement was targeted by an international boycott movement and forced to move to Israel, the company’s chief executive said Monday.
Daniel Birnbaum said the last 74 Palestinian workers left on Monday after being denied permits to work inside Israel at the new factory.
Hmm, maybe not, eh?
