Coca-Cola and the Secret Formula
A film by Olivia Mokiejewski

During this documentary shown on France 2 in January 2013, journalist Olivia Mokiejewski explained that she was a longtime Coke drinker who grew skeptical after hearing reports about the soda's potentially harmful effects. After not getting the answers she wanted through open-source channels, Mokiejewski bought shares of Coca-Cola in order to gain access to last year's annual general meeting, during which she was filmed asking Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent where the corporation gets its coca from, and why, for example, it continues to put so much sugar in its drinks and use artificial-coloring agents. From the looks of it, Kent was unamused.

Although France 2 receives more than 2.3 million Euros ( more than $3.1 million) in advertising from Coke, they still had the courage to run this film, "Coca-Cola Et La Formule Secrete (Coca-Cola and the Secret Formula), that is critical of the beverage company on a number of fronts.

Some of the film was shot at the Campaign to Stop Killer Coke headquarters and highlights some of the issues on which we have been working.

As you go on in the film to about 35:00, there is a conversation in Spanish and French. At the bottom of the video, you can choose "English" for the subtitles.

COKE-THE DRINK THAT REPRESSES WITH RAY ROGERS, January 11, 2014
Visit SFPI Radio

Corporate criminality is increasingly recognized because of blatant corruption like that revealed in the BP spill, JP Morgan and other banksters getting away with destroying the economy and Walmart's abuse of its employees, whose workers have to depend on tax money to meet their basic needs. What is less well known is that Coca-Cola is literally getting away with complicity in murder in Latin America.

COCA-COLA KILLS WITH RAY ROGERS, December 27, 2013
Visit SFPI Radio

Corporate power over US workers has tilted drastically toward corporations, resulting in devastation of workers rights, including the right to earn a decent living. This is the main reason for the decline in the living standards of workers and their families and a variety of destructive effects on American society, its economy, the environment and public health.

Americans are realizing the effects of corporate control of government, but outsourcing, deregulation and lack of accountability for harm to individuals and society do not compare to abuses of workers in other nations. Understanding what corporate executives do to their workers in other countries shows why we have to stand with them or suffer the same fate.

Coca-Cola shows the effects of unchecked corporate power...

Janine Bancroft of CFUV radio the discuses the the issues of kidnapping, torture and murder of union leaders in Coca-Cola's Latina American bottling plants. Her in-depth December 19, 2013 interview with Campaign to Stop Killer Coke director Ray Rogers is quite informative.

CFUV is located at the University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, Canada.

An army falters on its thirst

So the Nazis placed an order

Coca-Cola Involvement & Influence at World Water Forum Derided
Free Speech Radio News reports on the fourth World Water Forum in Mexico City, of which one of the top sponsors is The Coca-Cola Co. In the news report, representatives of several non-governmental organizations call into question Coca-Cola's sponsorship of the forum.

Amit Srivastava of India Resource Center commented: "The Coca-Cola Company has no place at a place like the World Water Forum because its relationship with water is extremely unsustainable and the supposed goal of the forum is to find sustainable uses of water...Coca-Cola is using the forum...as a public relations exercise..."

Joe Zacune of War on Want commented: "Coca-Cola is leading the charge amongst corporations who are not only interested in bottling water and distributing it. There's a new phenomenon of corporations going around the world to developing countries and buying up land in order to control water resources. Aquifers are subterranean chambers that hold water that has filtered down over hundreds of years and as such, represent the heritage of entire communities. Once Coca-Cola controls these resources, it bores deep into them and extracts the water to produce its beverages, and this has a devastating effect on local farmers.

Javier Correa, President of SINALTRAINAL, the National Food Service Workers Union in Colombia, describes the murders of members of his union, highlighting their occurrence during times of union negotiations. "Two of them were assassinated during negotiations of our collective contract, and one of them was assassinated while we were in the middle of a strike. They have imprisoned 14 of us; I have had to live with imprisonment on two occasions on charges brought by Coca-Cola officials; also 48 'companeros' including myself have been victims of death threats; they've tried to kidnap our children and have tortured us; they've displaced 'companeros' and burned union halls."
