National Rifle Assn. critics are blasting two of the world's biggest hotel companies because they give discounts to NRA members.
A global advocacy site, Avaaz.org, has urged its followers to go on Facebook and sound off against Best Western International and Wyndham Hotel Group for affiliating with the NRA. (Avaaz means "voice" in several European, Middle Eastern and Asian languages.)
Wyndham operates the Ramada, Days Inn, Super 8, Travelodge and Howard Johnson hotels, among others. Best Western is one of the world's largest hospitality chains, with more than 4,000 hotels in about 100 countries.
"It's time for mainstream companies like Wyndham Hotels to get out of bed with the extremist NRA," said Joseph Huff-Hannon, a senior campaigner at Avaaz.
