PEOPLES FORUM AGAINST COCA-COLA WORLD SOCIAL FORUM, MUMBAI
JANUARY 18, 2004 1 pm b 4 pm A-13 NESCO Grounds
Join communities from India and Colombia as we gather to hold
Coca-Cola accountable for its destructive activities in India,
Colombia and globally!
Over 100 residents from Coca-Cola affected communities in India are
gathering at the World Social Forum in Mumbai from January 16-21
to demand that Coca-Cola immediately stop operations in India.
Coca-Cola practices in India cause severe water shortages and
contaminate any remaining groundwater in these communities. Organized
protests against the Coca-Cola Company in India are increasingly
being dealt with through violent tactics used by the state and the
SINALTRAINAL, the union organizing at Coca-Cola plants in Colombia,
will also attend the forum. SINALTRAINAL union leaders and organizers
have been subject to a gruesome cycle of murders, kidnappings and
torture unleashed by Colombian paramilitary forces in complicity
with the Colombian Coca-Cola bottling subsidiary.
We urge you to join this important struggle to hold Coca-Cola
accountable and assert the right of communities over natural
resources. Look for our stall at the World Social Forum in Mumbai
and join the Peoplebs Forum Against Coca-Cola on January 18, 2004.
