#NOSTARBUCKS

Vow never to walk into a Starbucks ever again.

Vow never to walk into a Starbucks ever again. Instead, search out the most interesting indie coffee shop around where you live and work … get to know the people who own and run the place and get your friends and co-workers to join you there. Individually this may feel like a drop in the bucket, but if all of us do it collectively, then we can begin to shift power from megacorporations to our friends and neighbors.

Tweet #NOSTARBUCKS, Facebook it, email it, whisper it to a friend or shout it from the rooftops. Spread the word and let’s start brewing the mood for a worldwide revolution.

sounds to me like you're more interested in how you look to others than whether or not you effect change. Stop worrying about if you're a "hipster" or a "progressive" or not and get on with actually DOing something.
like the article suggests.
if you've got a suggestion for DOing something to help the world evolve you'd do well to outline it rather than be a cynical, back-seat driver.

If you are actually doing something. But seems like some folks here are simply whining about whether or not it's cool enough to support a boycott of Starbucks - if they'll be perceived as this label or that.
Get on with the boycott unless you have some actionable alternative to reforming the dastardly practices of these giant mega corporations.
More function -less form.

This unfortunately is the issue with activism, we all fight and squabble over the most banal of subjects. Starbucks like all other capitalist endeavours is interested in profits, profits over ethics, profits over people and profits over responsibility.

Perhaps all of us who see a world without greed need to start working together rather than spending precious time bantering over these ridiculous issues.

I dont drink coffee from Starbucks because it's actually not very good and its ridiculously expensive, on top of being more like a fast food joint than a good place to drink coffee.

So those of you who are thinking about boycotting them, do it!

Those of you who dont, well go ahead and drink it.

If both groups are interested in making the world a better place, then you need to stop arguing over it. In the end it will be cooperation that saves us not banal arguments spent from behind the screen.
