People can think what they like about breastfeeding, but they will quickly learn that they are not able to say anything discriminatory against a nursing mother with campaigns like this.

If every one at the nurse in orders a coffee or tea or hot chocolate or what ever then the sales will be up for the day.

Me, personally, I'd probably boycott. I have no problem with women having nurse-ins, but i don't honestly have enough faith in human kind to believe a person will change their opinion that breastfeeding is "digusting" because they see a lot of women doing it.
I think in the case of sunrise it was appropriate, but this one, I'm not sure. I doubt even if the owner had known asking the bf mother to stop was illegal would have made a difference - clearly it disgusted her enough that her behaviour probably wouldn't have changed knowing that fact.
I do have a lot of sympathy for the situation - I bf 3 children anywhere and everywhere and was never asked to stop or move - if I had I would have been mortified.
So I probably would just avoid the cafe and tell anyone I knew to do so as well. Legal or not it is something that a lot of people seem to not like seeing (young, old).

I just really think there's no such thing as bad publicity. Anything that gets a business name out in the open is good for them. It may turn away breastfeeding mum's, but sadly as we've seen by the amount of comments from anti-public-breastfeeding people on facebook posts, it will attract many people too.
I 100% agree with MummaOJ. I think these anti-public-breastfeeding morons are dispicable people, and I will always feed my baby wherever and whenever I need to, and if someone piped up at a cafe and told me I was disgusting, well I'd let them know they were the disgusting one with their ridiculous views, and simply leave.

Honestly? I think neither have much of an impact on those who are against breastfeeding in public.
A nurse-in will have those against it rolling their eyes, talking about breastnazis and how melodramatic and show-offish it all is. Making people think that bfers are attention seeking psychos who are too focused on what their tits do.
A boycott will do nothing because only those who are seriously outraged will bother with it and it will likely only be temporary and won't harm business too much anyway.
I think fining businesses heftily is perhaps the only way businesses will care and educate staff as to the laws...
