Sainsburys and Woolworths have banned the sale of a comedy DVD due to pressure by a religious group - details are at http://www.mediawatchwatch.org.uk/?p=300
Sainsburys has admitted it received 10 complaints before banning the DVD, therefore 11 people should override that by becoming the new majority. Sainsburys have said that "ultimately, the most important factor is what our customers want" - if they want to end the boycott of the pledgees early, they can reinstate sales immediately.
There is at least one other pledge related to this, but it doesn't have financial implications for the stores.
