'The Coca-Cola Case' Uncensored!
Nov. 10 @ IBEW Local 103 in Dorchester, Massachusetts
This is an invitation to a unique event on the evening of Wednesday, November 10 to both view the highly controversial film, "The Coca-Cola Case," and to meet and dialogue with Michael Blanding, author of "The Coke Machine—The Dirty Truth Behind the World's Favorite Soft Drink," and Ray Rogers, who is featured in the film and described by Business Week as a "legendary union activist" and the Financial Times as Coca-Cola's "fiercest foe." Earlier this year, Coca-Cola's lawyers threatened legal action if the film was shown. No one, including the National Film Board of Canada, caved in to Coke's bullying and intimidation tactics.
The event is being hosted by, and held in the auditorium of, Local 103 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers at 256 Freeport Street in Dorchester, Massachusetts (Google Map). It is open to the public and press and admission and beverages are free.
Local 103 has a large parking lot, seating for 1,200 guests and welcomes everyone to this event to decide for themselves which description is most appropriate: Coca-Cola, American Icon or Coca-Cola, American Criminal!
For drivers, parking is free in the union's large parking lot. For those taking mass transit, the closest T subway stop is the Field's Corner Station on the Red Line. It is a bit more than a 1/2 mile walk to Local 103.
