On June 12, 2005, a group of local high school students known as DANCES WITH KITTENS organized a rally in front of Urban Outfitters on Pacific Ave. to call attention to the corporation’s extreme right agenda.
All text below is from a flyer passed out by DANCES WITH KITTENS during the rally at Urban Outfitters on June 12, 2005.
Boycott Urban Outfitters!!!
The president of Urban Outfitters gives money to the Republican Party and right-wing senator Rick Santorum. Santorum is one of the most conservative members of the entire US Senate. He has made harsh remarks towards homosexuals. So, by buying from Urban Outfitters you are giving $ to support homophobic causes.
Another reason not to support Urban Outfitters is because of the shirt they sold for a while that said, “Voting is for Old People”! The goal of the shirt is obviously to suppress the youth vote and disenfranchise young people.
All we ask is that you examine the facts and choose to not buy any products from any Urban Outfitters until they stop giving money to discrimination and spreading the wrong message. There are plenty of other great places to shop.
Join us in boycotting Urban Outfitters!
“If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual (gay) sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything.” – Rick Santorum
