Self Respect - Do you have in you?

Part - I

Water privatisation is one of the prime agenda of WB(World Bank) for this century. And there are Mass protest everywhere. latin america, south east asia, canada etc.

If africa, latin america and other countries are experimental laboroteries for Imperialists then India is the final implimentation ground.

There they have learnt lots of (tons of) bloody bitter lessons.

In american continent (both north and south america) coke is known as Killer coke.

it has killed eigth labour union leaders in colombia so for and performed unconutable attrocities on those people.This with the help of colombian Para military force.
This is not a story. this even the colombian high court has accepted.
In india also it has killed the gram panchayt leader Kamsan(Gangaikondan) four months ago.

As the atrocities of Coke become known to everybody students in USA decided to stop consuming coke.

Look at the News bits below

hope you are aware of the campaign against coke in Tamil nadu, Gangaikondan by PALA got widespread appreciation, and mass support. and
the movement has unmasked the real face of state, police and judicial body which serves the need of imperialism. Now it is in its Third Phase.

Part - II
Those foreign guys have self respect which is essential difference between human from animal.

I believe we also have the sense of (for somebody it is hint of) self respect. if anybody insult our mother we would kill them. India is our mother. But She is being insulted and sexually harrased by our old masters and new masters. And we are not bothering.....

don't bother about our mother being raped.....We have our daily Food (shit..). (Eat Shit...Drink Coke..)

It is time to prove those MNCs and imperialists that nobody can get their breath in this country
if they insult our Soverignity, harras our Self Reliance, destroy our Culture, and Economy.

We have to punish them that they never think again of india as their Colony.

That is what the lesson latin american brothers and sisters has given to them.

But those countries are not powerfull enough to kick on the Soft belly of Imperialism.

But we are.....We are capable of....we are very very powerfull.

If we hit them that will be the dead blow to them.

Coke is a Symbol of recolonization. Fight against coke is fight
against Imperialism. That is Freedom Struggle.

Statuary Warning
If anybody who drinks coke or any foreign cool drinks he is eating his own shit. There are even daboo words linking his mother and him but this is not the platform to use those words.

U. of Michigan Becomes 10th College to Join Boycott of Coke By MELANIE WARNER

When students at the University of Michigan return to campus next week after the holiday break, they will find the Coke machines and fountain dispensers empty.
The university, which has 50,000 students on three campuses, on Thursday became the 10th college to stop selling Coca-Cola products because of concerns arising from accusations about the company's treatment of workers in bottling plants in Colombia and environmental problems in India.
A Coke spokeswoman, Kari Bjorhus, said yesterday in a statement that the company hoped the Michigan decision was temporary.
She said Coca-Cola was looking at ways to conduct an independent third-party study of the situation in Colombia.
Labor activists have said that Coca-Cola, through its Latin American bottlers, has been complicit in the deaths of eight union leaders and in continued harassment of unionized employees.
In India, a different group of activists have accused Coke of polluting the soil and groundwater near several bottling plants, of severely reducing groundwater levels in drought-prone areas and of failing to install adequate filtration systems that would remove pesticides from the water used to make its products.
The activists, led by two groups, Corporate Accountability International and the Campaign to Stop Killer Coke, have found a sympathetic ear on college campuses.
Within the last year, New York University, Rutgers University in New Jersey and Santa Clara University in California, among others, have stopped selling Coke products, which include Sprite, Dasani water, Minute Maid juice and Powerade sports drinks.
Coke has denied all of the accusations. In April, the company announced the findings of a report by CSCC, a consulting firm in Los Angeles. The report, which was paid for by Coke, addressed current conditions, not the deaths, which occurred from 1989 to 2002. It found no violations or abuses of labor or human rights in Coke's bottling plants in Colombia.
Unsatisfied, the University of Michigan and five universities that still sell Coke products have called for an independent investigation of both the Colombia and India situations.
The University of Michigan had set today as a deadline for Coke to select an auditor and agree on the terms of the investigation. But talks between the company and the university broke down.
Coke says the accusations about India are groundless, also. It says that its use of water in India has become more efficient and that it has begun harvesting rainwater to help return it to underground sources.
In the fiscal year 2005, the University of Michigan had 13 contracts for selling Coca-Cola products, totaling $1.4 million. The university did not have an exclusive contract with Coke and it will continue to sell beverages from other companies.

Coke loses fizz at US varsity over India plant

By Ela Dutt, New York: A US varsity has suspended sale of Coca Cola on it campus after students launched a year-long campaign against the soft drinks company's practices in India and Colombia.
Students at the University of Michigan are happy that their administration has suspended the sale of Coca Cola products starting Jan 1.
The decision suspends 13 contracts with Coca Cola worth $1.4 million annually because the company has not agreed to protocols for a third-party review of labour practices in Colombia and has not developed protocols for reviewing environmental concerns in India.
"It was a definite victory in that the university has realised that Coca Cola is not acting on good faith and is not on deadline and not really committed," Jory Hearst, an activist in the campaign at the university, told IANS.
"We are concerned, however, with the language of the university that it is 'temporarily suspended' but we kind of expected that.
"So it is going to be really important for the campaign to continue and to continue pressure to make sure the actions that Coca Cola takes are truly acknowledging the issues and not using public relations as they have in the past four years. They deny as much as they can," Hearst maintained.
But the soft drinks behemoth hopes it can salvage its concerns in India and its contracts in the US. It is accused of depleting ground water reserves at its plant in Plachimada in the south Indian state of Kerala.
On Dec 29, 2004, after a year-long campaign by the Students Organizing for Labor and Economic Equality lodged a formal complaint about Coca Cola's business practices in India and Colombia, the university sent a letter to Coca Cola suspending sales on campus starting Jan 1.
The complaint alleged that Coke's bottling plants in these countries violated various provisions of the Vendor Code of Conduct of the University by fostering environmental practices in India that have depleted the groundwater and led to products with unacceptably high levels of pesticides.
Nine other universities in the US have suspended Coca Cola sales according to media reports. New York University, the largest private university in the country, banned Coca Cola products from Dec 8 last year.
Others that have done the same are Rutgers University in New Jersey, Santa Clara University in California, Salem State College in Massachusetts and the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.
Coca Cola spokesperson Kari Bjorhus told IANS the company was pleased that the University of Michigan has indicated its belief that the company is "sincere in its desire to ensure fair labour practices and a safe working environment in Colombia, and sustainable environmental practices in India".
"The University of Michigan Dispute Review Board has made this decision based on our inability to reach an agreement for another third-party assessment before the deadline they had initially set.
