Nearly six months ago, I began a campaign to ask Amazon not to stock books, such as To Train up a Child, that advocate the physical abuse of children.
The petition I created now has over ELEVEN THOUSAND signatures, many of them leading experts and campaigners in the fields of children's rights and child psychology.
And yet, Amazon refuse to make any response.
This month, I am hoping to change this with a new campaign: March on Amazon. For the entire month, I will be asking for your help to increase the pressure on this global corporation to take note of the petition, and in doing so take a stand against the inhuman treatment of children outlined in some of the books they currently sell.
Here are some ways that you can help:
This campaign is now calling for a FULL BOYCOTT. Until Amazon make a response, please take your business elsewhere.
