Banner Drop in St. Paul-Minneapolis, Minnesota, July 22, 2005
"We did two banner drops on Highway 35 during morning rush hour and Highway 94 during the evening rush.
"I think we can bet several thousand people learned about the boycott for the first time on Friday, in the Twin Cities alone. From what I've heard about actions and press in other cities, it seems like public consciousness is rapidly growing about Coke's grave human rights violations in India and Colombia."
"On Monday, July 11, 2005, a dozen people gathered for half-an-hour starting at noon outside TIAA-CREF's offices in Boston's financial district. They were protesting and passing out informational fliers as part of the lead up to next week's TIAA-CREF annual shareholders meeting, where members of the Make TIAA-CREF Ethical Coalition will press TIAA-CREF, one of the country's largest pension funds, to divest from Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart and other corporations that do not do business ethically. Wal-Mart is well known for its exploitive labor practices, while Coke is guilty of a number of socially irresponsible practices, ranging from marketing junk food to children in the US to complicity with death squads in Colombia." Boston Independent Media Center — Matthew Williams

Bob is also an excellent speaker who would speak to groups free of charge — contact him at his email address.

Police Attack Coca-Cola Protest in Mehdiganj, India; Over 350 Arrested
"Towards the end of the rally, the marchers decided to march to the factory gates, about a hundred meters from the site of the rally. The armed police reacted violently and swiftly, with no warnings. The armed police launched a vicious lathi (baton) charge on all the marchers, and many women, in particular, became the target of male police officers who beat them incessantly. The police also chased after community members in the surrounding fields to beat them, many of whom were escaping the site of the violent police action. A Budhist monk was also attacked by the police, who showed no regard whatsoever for any one present in the area. The police attacks were ordered by Mr. Tahir Iqbal, ADM of police in Varanasi." — excerpt from a report of the India Resource Center. See more photos.
