Unfortunately, as Jacob pointed out, market pressure (via boycotts or
similar) rarely work out in these cases, as can be seen by his examples.

When human rights and ethical problems present themselves and the market
fails to do the right thing (stop the wrong actions from happening) then
something other than the market must step in.
