What do you do when a place that has always prided itself on promoting breastfeeding and following the WHO formula advertising code suddenly starts hosting Nestle banners?

Would you boycott? Call them out publically as hypocritical?
Send passionate emails first, asking for a return to the former principles they supported?
Or just quietly walk away...

You report the offensive ads here and give TPTB time to respond. It can take up to 48 hours for the "innapropriate" ads to actually be removed from the list.

If this is just a hypothetical question, and not specific to MDC, then the first step is to contact the people in charge and find out what's going on, what (if anything) they're doing to remedy the situation, etc.

Your hypothetical scenario assumes that someone is actually trying to do something to remedy the situation. What if that isn't the case?

Since we're speaking in hypotheticals, let's suppose you came across something that was deeply disturbing and undermined everything you had believed about the place. And then the powers-that-be decided that it was something they stood behind and would not be removing.

In the very unlikely event that you could have possibly misjudged a place so badly, what would you do then?
