For what it's worth, I'm actively boycotting all Coke products.

Coke has been my favorite soft drink for 50+ years. I was recently shocked to learn of their practices in Bogatta, Columbia and have since found that this was just the tip of the iceberg. I will never again buy my favorite soft drink or any other Coke product and have been encouraging my friends to do the same.

Solidarity,

Rev. John Mark Crowder

Dear Brothers & Sisters:

The Campaign to Stop Killer Coke recently received a new website from "Coca-Cola in the Philippines." The site discusses Coke's corrupt practices and precarious labor in the bottling plants of the Philippines. They are asking Coca-Cola workers to participate in a discussion of Coke's abuses:
