Irvine Versus Ford Momentum for Ford Boycott

Posted By: March 29, 2013

Washington D.C., December 12, 1995 — The Irvine discrimination case against Ford before the Fair Employment Commission gives added justification for the Ford Boycott in the United States.

Since October 1986 Irish-Americans have been Boycotting Ford in the U.S. It is estimated that Boycott has convinced hundreds of thousands of Irish-Americans not to buy Ford Automobiles. Indeed it is believed that the controversy deprived Ford of a Presidential vist from Bill Clinton on his recent trip to Belfast. “The Irvine case — like the Marie Daly case earlier — dramatically reveals Ford’s constant bad faith and discriminatory record,” said Father Sean McManus, President of the Washington based Irish National Caucus which launched the Ford Boycott.

“All we’ve ever asked from Ford is a sign of good faith. We’ve got instead lies, cover-ups and stonewalling. The Irvine case gives fresh urgency to the Ford Boycott. We will now dramatically escalate the Boycott.”
