Do you find that boycotts can lead to other types of protest, like marches? And can boycotts affect small businesses or is it just larger ones?

A big thank you to Rob for taking the time to give such interesting questions!

Would you like to start a magazine that changes the world? What would you write about? And what forms of protest might you encourage - boycotts? Virtual activism? Marches?
