Nebraska Students Call For Beer Company Boycott

January 24, 2013, 6:17 AM

Nebraska Students Call For Beer Company Boycott
OMAHA, NE -

Students from three Nebraska universities and a high school are calling for a public boycott of Anheuser-Busch products because of their sales to beer stores in the town of Whiteclay.

Students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Creighton University and Creighton Prep announced the boycott on Tuesday.

The students say they want to end beer sales in Whiteclay, which sits on the border of South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where alcohol is banned. Activists say the town is responsible for alcohol-related social problems on the reservation, home to the Oglala Sioux Tribe.

In a statement, Anheuser-Busch says it obeys all laws in places where it operates, and it doesn't sell beer directly to retailers or consumers.
