Why does the COOP still sell COKE?
by AP press (“Arcata Plazoid”)

Although the Co-op Affairs Committee has been repeatedly informed of Coca-Cola’s human rights violations (including murder) and environmental trespasses in Columbia and India, the Coop still sells COKE and ODWALLA (which is owned by Coca-Cola).

But, Why?

Well, I asked a Co-op representative, and he said that it was because people still buy it! He also said that if the AFL-CIO supported the boycott, then the Co-op would also. Doing a little research, I found out that the South Bay AFL-CIO Labor Council resolved to support the campaign to demand that Coca-Cola be held accountable for collusion with paramilitary terrorists in Columbia, and other human rights abuses (http://www.killercoke.org/pdf/sblcres.pdf).

Support the South Bay AFL-CIO and stand in solidarity for the rights of workers not to be tortured and murdered in Columbia or anywhere else, even if the Co-op won’t.

    Nah, nah, nah. Do the Arcata thing. Have the city council pass a resolution condemning the Co-op for supporting Coca-Cola. We’ll just begin shopping in McKinleyville and Eureka to get that cool, refreshing taste. Mmmm.

    I’d like to buy the world a Coke

    sorry, “anonymous”, but I read your “IDEA”, and it doesn’t make any sense at all. Please try again.

    Money is all that matters to many people. Many people and businesses have no integrity or consistency. They say one thing and do another…

    surprise, surprise.
