Campaign to Stop Tobacco Sponsorship of George Benson Concert in Indonesia

In November 2006, an Indonesian GYAT member found out that an American jazz singer’s upcoming concert in Jakarta was being sponsored by a tobacco company. Quick cross-border research between U.S. and Indonesian GYAT members generated sufficient information to launch an online email campaign targeting Benson’s U.S.-based agent in a last minute effort to halt the tobacco company’s sponsorship of the concert. The campaign had an immediate impact, and the agent reported that the tobacco signage inside the concert was removed. Click here for more information
