The Koch Brothers, Charles and David, with a combined worth of around $35 billion, are waging a war against
President Obama and working Americans. They are the majority owners in Koch Industries, America’s second-
largest private company, with revenues of $100 billion in 2009. The company’s main source of revenue is from
manufacturing, refining and distribution of petroleum. They are major financiers of the Tea Party and they are also
providing money to run anti-Democratic ads. Do not allow your money to be used to sponsor the Tea Party and
undercut working families. The United Association has called for a boycott of Georgia-Pacific products.

The Koch Brothers (David and Charles) own:

        Koch Industries
        Invista
        Georgia-Pacific
        Flint Hills Resources
        Dupont
        Koch Pipeline
        Koch Fertilizer
        Koch Minerals
        Matador Cattle Company

Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch run Koch Industries and Koch Family Foundations, one of the largest single
sources of funding for conservative organizations in the United States. Organizations and think tanks supported by
the foundation include The Tea Party, Citizens for a Sound Economy, the libertarian Cato Institute, the Heritage
Foundation, Reason Magazine, the Manhattan Institute, and the Heartland Institute. The Koch brothers were the
primary funders of Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally in Washington DC last year, which was held on the
anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. More recently, the public has become aware of the
brothers' influence on union busting in states like Wisconsin, Ohio, and New Jersey.

The billionaire brothers have spent more money than any individual or oil conglomerate to spread misinformation
about global warming. Many of their "donations" have been funneled through the political process to defeat any
and all attempts at creating climate control legislation. In 2010 they donated huge sums of money to defeat
Democrats and Progressives in the November election. In addition, it is believed they may have influenced
Supreme Court Justices Scalia and Thomas to pass the "Citizens United" ruling last year, which allows millionaires,
billionaires and large corporations to donate unlimited sums of money to political candidates without being
required to divulge the dollar amount or source.

Because the brothers' influence is in direct contrast with middle class values, we urge a boycott of all their
products. Please note that boycotts are most effective when retailers are made aware of the reasons for the
boycott. When boycotting products and companies, be sure to address the reasons why. Our primary goal is to
engage ordinary citizens in a process of educating the public at large about a problem that affects them in adverse
