Dear Sisters & Brothers:

Strong labor unions are critical to improve wages, working conditions and human rights for all workers and for democracies to flourish. For workers in Colombia and Guatemala, a strong union can also mean the difference between life and death.

The Campaign to Stop Killer Coke originated to stop the gruesome cycle of violence against union leaders and organizers in Colombia in efforts to crush their union, SINALTRAINAL. Since then, violence, abuse and exploitation leveled against Coke workers and communities have been uncovered in other countries as well, notably China, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Mexico and Turkey.

Colombia
In Colombia, the importance of winning the struggle against Coke was best summed up by SINALTRAINAL Vice President Juan Carlos Galvis when he said:

"If we lose this fight against Coke,
First we will lose our union,
Next we will lose our jobs,
And then we will all lose our lives!"
The Coca-Cola Case,
a Documentary Film from Directors
German Gutiérrez and Carmen Garcia
Watch the movie trailer.Lawsuits were filed in the United States in 2001 and 2006 by the United Steelworkers of America and the International Labor Rights Fund on behalf of SINALTRAINAL, several of its members who were falsely imprisoned and the survivors of Isidro Gil and Adolfo de Jesus Munera, two of its murdered officers. The lawsuits charged Coca-Cola bottlers "contracted with or otherwise directed paramilitary security forces that utilized extreme violence and murdered, tortured, unlawfully detained or otherwise silenced trade union leaders." The lawsuits and campaign were developed to force Coca-Cola to once and for all end further bloodshed, compensate victims and provide safe working conditions.

The Campaign called for the main judge, Joseph E. Martinez, who presided over the original lawsuits against The Coca-Cola Co. and its Colombian bottlers in Federal District Court in Miami, Florida, to recuse himself because of serious conflicts of interest and statements he made about the case. (Read "Talking Points" 3 on Martinez)

Coca-Cola, which is virulently anti-union, claims that any allegations that its bottlers in Colombia are involved in the systematic intimidation, kidnapping, torture, and murder of union leaders are false. Yet the company has fought every effort to have an independent investigation into these allegations while at the same time has misled the public and its own shareholders with a long string of lies and bogus investigations. (Read "Talking Points" 4 on bogus investigations)

Criticism of Coca-Cola
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The neutrality of this article is disputed. Please see the discussion on the talk page. Please do not remove this message until the dispute is resolved. (August 2010)

The Coca-Cola Company and its products have been criticized by various sources for various reasons including negative health effects resulting from consumption of its products, exploitative labor practices, high levels of pesticides in its products, building plants in Nazi Germany which employed slave labor, environmental destruction, monopolistic business practices, hiring paramilitary units to murder trade union leaders, and marketing unhealthy products to children.

I have read other stories about American Corporations, and how they operate in foreign countriws, just as shocking.

All of this anti-union business started with REagan, who was himself, a member of the Actor's Guild, and helped to push cigarettes in commercials, long after doctors were warning of the health consequences of smoking.

Tom Delay, also involved in protecting the slave treatment, rape and kidnapping in the Mariannas, to keep it off the slate, for review, here in our country.

Reagan, firing the Air Traffic Controllers, and black listing them, ruining manny of their lives, whenn they weren't even asking for more money, just shorter hours, in the interest of safety.

Every time you find anything about Corporations treating their employees in an inhumane fashion, you can bet there is a Republican involved, in aiding that inhumane treatment. Bush/Torture? Bush/Cheney, pollution Czars of the world.

Cheney, now charged with bribery, during his tenure with Halliburton.

No thinking person, who has studied the added cancer deaths, childhood obesity, diabetes, loss of economic opportunities for Americans, and other people around the world, due to the very same pigs that Republicans willingly go to the wall to protect, or exploit, for their own gain, would ever cast a vote for a Republican.

The damages to this country from Repubicans over the last thirty five years, are stunning.

Anyone who think corporations leave America because of taxes, is ignorant beyond belief. Two third of them don't even pay taxes. they go where they can best exploit, pollute, steal and cause human distress, with no one to hold them to account.

Pigs! Supported and protected by Pigs.

Partially true, companies leave the US for several reasons, taxes are A reason but not the only. Some others include:

-Shut downs due to local health regulations. Sometimes it's cheaper and easier to pack up and go where regulations are scant than it is to get up to code.

-Increasing wage requirements and union wage pushing.

-Cost of providing insurance is too high

-Cost of raw materials is cheaper elsewhere

-Foreign subsidation

-Workers can work longer hours with few or no vacations, no medical leave or safety inspections... no OSHA regulations

These are a few of the reasons listed, some make sense, some are despicable in our collective eyes. But they are often the reasons nonetheless. And we basically pay for their move, through tax deferments.
