Indians vs. Anheuser-Busch

Protesters challenge business to 'distribute responsibly'An American Indian activist and Nebraskans for Peace have challenged Anheuser-Busch to "distribute responsibly," playing off the corporation's advertising slogan of "drink responsibly."

Activist Frank LaMere and members of Nebraskans For Peace stood across the street from the High Plains Budweiser distributorship in Scottsbluff as part of a protest Thursday. The group said Anheuser-Busch is not living up to its own advertising slogan by allowing sales of beer to liquor outlets in the border town of Whiteclay, south of the dry Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
