(that's my headline of the year!)

from the latest schnews (http://www.schnews.org.uk/archive/news476.htm)

Over 1000 people marched to the Coca-Cola factory in Mehdiganj, in India last week, demanding its closure. The demo was the end of a 10 day, 250 km march from Ballia, another bottling facility, bringing attention to Coca-Cola’s negative impacts on communities across India (SchNEWS 474).

The peaceful marchers were met at the bottling facility by armed police. Speakers at the rally denounced Coca-Cola’s illegal practices in India and internationally.

Marchers then went to the factory gates, near the site of the rally, where police reacted violently with no warning. They baton-charged and beat the marchers, then chased onlookers in surrounding fields to give them a beating too. Over 350 were arrested, and 100 injured.

“While shocking, the violent attack on the peaceful demonstration against Coca-Cola is not surprising. Coca-Cola operates with impunity, and violence is an inherent part of how Coca-Cola does business the world over”, said Amit Srivastava of the India Resource Center. Images and film from the rally also available by contacting info@IndiaResource.org, www.IndiaResource.org

Send a FREE FAX to Neville Isdell, CEO of Coca-Cola in Atlanta, US demanding they stop the violence and address the problems created by Coca-Cola in India. www.indiaresource.org/action/faxcoke.php

better believe it! nah it's really along the capitalist -vs- marxist axis. i'll confess to slightly losing interest in "the cause" at the moment. heresy i know! how much does it actually mean to anyone's life praxis these days? me, i'm of the school of thought that says if you actually believe in it, you drop what you're doing and plot to overthrow the regime. otherwise...........
