Fill up your car today? Guess you didn't get the memo. The e-mail memo, that is, sent by some online vigilante who apparently hoped the gas-boycott forwards would spread like wildfire.
Internet adds to activists' arsenal
Please forward - The "gas-out memo" illustrates the
reach of an e-mail campaign
Tuesday, May 15,
Jorita Bishop has no idea where the gas boycott e-mail came
from. All she knows is she is tired of pouring so much money
into her tank while hearing about record profits for oil
companies. So, last week she and her 9-year-old daughter
drew up signs asking fellow Portlanders not to buy gas today
and plastered them to her car.
