Killer Coke Activists Target Royal Bank of Canada Shareholders Meeting, Halifax, Canada, Feb. 25, 2005.

On Saturday, February 19, 2005, members of the Canadian Campaign to Stop Killer Coke braved freezing weather to organize information pickets at Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) locations in Victoria, London, Hamilton, Kingston, Toronto and Halifax. The information pickets were aimed at RBC customers and staff, to inform them about the murder and threats directed at Colombian trade unionists in Coca-Cola bottling plants. The organizers handed out petitions encouraging people to call for the removal of J. Pedro Reinhard (who's also on the board of Coca-Cola and Dow Chemical) from the board of directors of the RBC for his silent complicity in the face of murdered trade unionists in Colombia. Armed with a mock "Killer Coke bottle" costume and a miniature puppet depicting J. Pedro Reinhard, the organizers stepped up their campaign to bring attention to Coca-Cola's crimes in Colombia. These actions are part of wider activities taking place in communities and university campuses across Ontario, and other parts of Canada, where activists are mobilizing to hold Coke accountable for human and labour rights violations in their bottling plants in Colombia.

ORGANIZATIONS THAT ENDORSED THE PICKETS: ACT for the Earth ~ the ACTivist Magazine, CASA (the Colombia Action Solidarity Alliance), Oakville District Labour Council, OPIRG - Toronto, Polaris Institute; For more information, contact:
