Boycotting campaigns (presentation I'm doing)
So, in General Studies, I have to do a presentation. I chose 'advertising', but decided to be a little more specific and focus on boycotting campaigns and how the campaigners get their point across.
I've decided to use two examples to study in detail - the points they make, examples of the proof they have supporting their case, the emotive language used on their websites and leaflets. These examples are the PETA campaign 'Kentucky Fried Cruelty', and 'Stop Esso' from Greenpeace UK (part of ExxposeExxon - a short movie can be seen here. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.exxposeexxon.com/movie/">http://www.exxposeexxon.com/movie/</a><!-- m -->)
The reason why I'm posting this is because I'd love to hear different opinions from you guys, whether it be on the campaigns themselves, how I should present my work, anything! I will be offering some of my personal input in the presentation, but the main part is on how the campaigners present their points of view, either good (leaflets and websites) or bad (aggressive demonstrations resulting in people getting seriously injured, contaminating food, etc.)
(Also, a moderator's note - please respect each other's opinions.)
Thanks to Elinox for the banner!
