Photos from the 2 June 2006 event against Coca-Cola in Moenchengladbach, Germany during the Germany-Colombia football match some days before the World Cup began.
On Thursday 6th October, eight Bristol university students held a memorial for the seven Coca-Cola workers, and the wife of one of them, who have been assassinated because of their trade union activities at Coca-Cola bottling plants in Colombia. The eight students wore black bags, each bearing a placard on their chest stating 'In memory of' and the murdered trade unionist's name. They walked through the university freshers' fair, to the front of the students union building, behind a banner highlighting Coca-Cola's criminal activities. The eight students lay down on the steps of the main entrance to the Students' Union where several photographers took pictures of the 'die-in' while other students handed out information.
