Charter Day at the University of Montana

Community Action for Justice in the Americas (CAJA) dropped a couple banners in the University Center during today's celebration of Charter Day at the University of Montana. We also distributed handbills that described how the university administration had given the 110-year legacy of the University of Montana to Coke for the promotion of their soft drinks, and is supporting Coke's violation of human rights in Colombia. Charter Day commemorates the founding of the university and seemed like an appropriate time to ask whether the university administration is promoting a thirst for knowledge or a thirst for Coke.

In solidarity,
Scott Nicholson
