BTC – According to grassroots airline boycott organizer James Babb, recent TSA patdowns include “pushing into your testicles” and “squeezing your breasts”. These accounts are some of the reasons why he and his family are telling airlines “We Won’t Fly“.
In instances like this, one always has more questions than answers as to why the feds can’t just focus on actual terrorist threats vs. invasive national dragnet strategies. If you are already at the ENOUGH level, you may be considering an airline boycott this season by opting to drive or use alternate transport.
More independent grassroots groups, just like We Won’t Fly[.com], have been springing up around the country since the UPS terror threat. Despite coverage in national media, there are still transport workers and passengers who don’t understand the risks involved with using the virtual strip search machines installed in airports.
We interviewed James Babb about his approach to an airline boycott this Thanksgiving and how We Won’t Fly is working to inform others about common privacy concerns. [Witness the entrepenurs at work!]
