Coca-Cola is being accused of killing several union organizers in Columbia. This is the first time I have ever heard of these accusations. Have any of you heard of this before now? If this is actually going on, it means that my favorite beverage producer is in some ways condoning murder. I hope this is not actually happening, because it would make me feel horrible every time I purchased a Coke.

Coca-Cola Co. (KO ), taking the beverage giant to task for allegedly turning a blind eye as eight employees of Coke bottlers in Colombia were killed and scores more were threatened or jailed on trumped-up terrorism charges over the past decade.

Killer Coke's Casualties

Listed below are union leaders at Coca-Cola's Colombian bottling plants who have been murdered. Hundreds of other Coke workers have been tortured, kidnapped and/or illegally detained by violent paramilitaries, often working closely with plant managements.

The read in the links are a bit confusing. If I understand correctly Coke is accused of murdering and torturing individuals that belong to a particular union. My questions: What type of union is this, what were their rules and actions? What justification would Coke have for murder and torture? What was the method of murder and torture? Are there Americans working in these plants? Are the executives of this plant American? Was this a franchised plant? I don't feel I am getting the whole story here. Any other links or info much appreciated.

I saved info on my disk somewhere that a beverage company is being used to harm us. The bottlers do not put the stuff in the liquid, (because of testing), intead, they put an amount of something on the rim of the bottle (the part that toouches peoples lips.
this same company of authority also make a bottled water called Das - - i.
I am not sure if this is coke or pepsi, but if it is coke, that explains why you are seeing less Pepsi in fast food places, etc. I have quite a few dicks and AOT of saved text. I will try to find that info as soon as I can get some time.

1. The carbonation irritates the stomach.
2. The stomach "cures" the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid at its disposal: calcium. It gets this from the blood.
3. The blood, now low on calcium, replenishes its supply from the bones. If it did not do this, muscular and brain function would be severely impaired.

1. Carbonation reduces the calcium in the bones.
2. Phosphoric acid reduces the calcium in the bones.
3. The beverage replaces a calcium-containing alternative, such as milk or water. Milk and water are not excellent calcium sources, but they are sources.

Watch this video, it can be found on netflix instant.

At 30:00 it focuses on Coke/Dasani and it's role worldwide in the water wars. Some quick facts from this segment of the film to tease you:

Mexican Pres. Vicente Fox was previously a Coca-Cola general manager for Latin America. During his term, the largest water concessions (giveaways) in Mexico's history were given to Coke.
In Africa, Dasani has a monopoly on bottled water. In fact the monopoly is so complete that Dasani water actually costs more than a same-sized bottle of Coke. Coke rep claims that the price difference is that the water is in plastic bottles, which cost more to produce and are taxed higher. The film then shows 1 liter bottles coke vs. dasani, both plastic, coke is ~2/3 the price of the water.

Now that may not seem horrible, but if you watch the film you can see that what Dasani and it's competitors are doing all over the world is buying the contracts to run the public water treatment plant, ruining the water quality and/or jacking up the price of the municipal water. Now the population is dependent on the bottled water for survival. It's evil incarnate.

This sounds eerily similar to the Chiquita Banana story. Eric Holder made the charges disappear. I suspect the same will happen here.

Responding to the original topic
This is only speculation.

I find the timing of such articles, and or information very suspect, regardless of when they leak out.
Despite that I may or may not believe that the afore mentioned is happening, something else may be happening as well.
There is no doubt that "Coca-Cola Enterprises is the world's largest marketer, producer, and distributor of Coca-Cola products"(
That being true, such negative information can make market values fluctuate like mad.
So can appropriate rebuttals and viable credibility as to Coke's non involvement.
There stands to be a lot of money lost, and gained based upon information such as this.
This is only speculation, but I see market manipulation here.
Take with a grain of salt, but if one is to believe the "alleged" nefarious agendas of the industry, is anything out of bounds?

This article was from 2006. This was the first time I saw it and wondered if anyone on ATS knew anything about this. After I searched for it on ATS, with no results, I thought I would share the info I found.

I heard Coca-cola can take paint off of cars. Is that true?

Is this why Ahmadinejad banned it the other day? Just wondering.

I'm not sure about that, butiIf you put a tooth in a glass of Coke a day later it will be dissolved. Coca Cola truck drivers use it to clean off their truck batteries. It's actually in the drivers manual. It works really well.
