Students boycott Bud, Anheuser-Busch in bid to halt Whiteclay beer sales

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

By CHRISTOPHER BURBACH / Omaha World-Herald /January 23, 2013

With protests, lawsuits and political pressure having failed to stop beer sales in tiny Whiteclay, Neb., students from three Nebraska universities and a high school are turning to consumer power as the latest weapon in the decades-long dispute.

It worked with fast food. Maybe, the students reason, it will work with Whiteclay beer sales that contribute to social ills on the neighboring Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

The students, led by Creighton Prep graduates who were first inspired by a high school class, on Tuesday announced a boycott of Budweiser beer and other Anheuser-Busch products. [Goto whiteclayboycott.blogspot.com.] They’re picking on Bud because Anheuser-Busch products compose a large majority of the beer that is sold by the four off-sale stores in Whiteclay — 4.3 million 12-ounce cans in 2011. The town has about a dozen residents. Most of the beer is sold to people from the Pine Ridge reservation, where alcohol is banned. (more…)
