In these unprecedented times, there is a growing need to consider targeted boycotts to express our collective voice. Worldwide, we have witnessed the ripple effect of such actions and the power they hold. In South Africa, we have learned that, as citizens, we possess the ability to hold brands accountable and denounce their support of genocide. In an era of genocide, neutrality is not an option.However, alongside this movement, we are also witnessing a troubling trend of shaming within our own ranks. Peer pressure and public call-outs for failing to boycott specific brands have become prevalent. We must put an end to this culture of shame and instead foster constructive discussions centred around the changes we seek and the viable alternatives available.While a boycott may be necessary in some cases, we must recognize that individuals have the autonomy to choose which brands to support, be it one, two, or ten. We should refrain from shaming anyone based on their choices, and instead engage in meaningful dialogue regarding the changes we wish to see and the alternative products we can embrace.Let us not forget that the ultimate goal of a boycott is to bring about positive change. As citizens, we possess the power to advocate for progress. However, we must also acknowledge that education and understanding play a vital role in this process. By promoting informed discussions and fostering a spirit of empathy, we can pave the way for a more inclusive and effective movement.So, let us move forward together, embracing constructive engagement and working towards a brighter future for all.
