Just an fyi in case GRRN is still keeping an eye on Coca-Cola. This came

Subject: Coke: The New Nike

Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

Ever since its "I'd like to teach the world to sing" commercials from the
1970s, Coca-Cola has billed itself as the world's beverage, uniting
colors and cultures within its red-and-white swoosh. Behind that image,
however, writes Michael Blanding in a new Nation online exclusive, a
growing student movement is taking the company to task for its shoddy
human rights record around the globe.

And click below to check out a new activist website offering detailed
background on scores of allegations of human rights abuses against Coke
from South America as well as a host of ways you can get involved in the
campaign to stop the gruesome cycle of killings of union organizers at
Coca-Cola bottling plants in Colombia.
