The University Senate brought together Coca-Cola connoisseurs, activists and community members to discuss the possible repeal of the ban.
The ban on Coca-Cola products calls for an independent investigation into the company’s human rights practices in Colombian bottling factories in the 1990s. It has been suspected that Coca-Cola may have been compliciin the murders of union leaders.
Camilo Romero, a member of the Colombian trade union SINALTRAINAL, spoke with WSN.
“Each of us [members of the union] have received less threats on our lives
since the NYU Coke ban has been in effect,” Romero said. --NewsHammer 1/27/2009
