IWW film night takes on Coca Cola

March 21, 2011

This Thursday, the Grand Rapids branch of the IWW will be hosting a screening of the new film The Coca Cola Case. The film investigates the brutal reality of union workers targeted for assassination in Colombia and the campaign to hold Coca Cola accountable for these crimes.

According to the film site, “Columbia is the trade union murder capital of the world. Since 2002, more than 470 workers’ leaders have been brutally killed, usually by paramilitaries hired by private companies intent on crushing the unions. Among these unscrupulous corporate brands is the poster boy for American business: Coca-Cola.”

The film is powerful and will challenge what you think about one of the most widely branded companies in the world. After the film there will be discussion on this case and the Killer Coke Campaign.
