Sucking the World Dry

10th Sep 2020 - 11:00
We cannot solve the climate and ecological emergency without stopping corporations like Coca-Cola from 𝘀𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗯𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗵𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝘀, 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗲𝗻𝘃𝗶𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗚𝗹𝗼𝗯𝗮𝗹 𝗦𝗼𝘂𝘁𝗵. Multinational corporations like Coca Cola exploit Black and Brown people to channel profit into America, Europe and other Rich Nations. 🩸Coca-cola is the biggest plastic polluter in the world with 89% of their waste not recycled and ending up in oceans. 🩸Coca-cola operates 58 water intensive bottling plants in india which have caused drought in those areas, decimating land, making it impossible for local people to water crops and grow food. 🩸Coca-cola workers in Columbia who have sought to unionise have been threatened, intimidated and even murdered. These corporations are 𝗺𝗼𝗱𝗲𝗿𝗻 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗺, colonising the Global South to channel wealth to the Global North and leaving decimation in their wake. This is a mass action, where everyone is invited to 🗑️ 𝗿𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗻 𝗖𝗼𝗰𝗮 𝗖𝗼𝗹𝗮’𝘀 𝗴𝗮𝗿𝗯𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺 🗑️. Go collecting trash from the streets of your community and deliver all of it on the 10th September to Coca Cola's London headquarters. We also ask you to make a placard saying why Coke is 💩𝘁𝗼𝘅𝗶𝗰 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘁 💩. Would be great to see photographs of Coke pollution and toxicity from the Majority World on your placards. 🛑𝗦𝗶𝗴𝗻 𝘂𝗽 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗿𝗼𝗹𝗲𝘀🛑 𝗵𝘁𝘁𝗽𝘀://𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝘁𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸.𝗼𝗿𝗴/𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝘀/𝗶𝗻𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗲-𝗮𝗰𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀-𝗿𝗼𝗹𝗲𝘀
