    The principle of the boycott is not all that far from my views?if it concerns the gentrification of Jaffa, for example. However, I was personally blown away by Jane Fonda signing her name to the boycott! OMG, she is probably one of the richest woman capitalists in the world, not in the least probably thanks to her marriage to and divorce from tycoon Ted Turner, and for years she plugged her inane bestselling workout videos (1982-1995). Now, what did that do for the feminist cause? And how can Naomi Klein bear to add her name to the same list with her? How can Fonda fight for equality and the rights of the disenfranchised when she epitomizes exactly the (super-rich) opposite? As for Gal Ukhovsky, the commercial-consumption manufacturer, probably would ?out? his soul for a buck or a provocation, and hence, his formulaic and manipulative movie, Bubbles!?
