Columbia is the trade
union murder capital of the world. Since 2002, more than 470 workers’ leaders
have been brutally
killed, usually by paramilitaries hired by private companies intent on
crushing the unions. Among these unscrupulous corporate brands is the poster
boy for American business: Coca-Cola.
These unpunished crimes
spur U.S. activists David Kovalik, Terry Collingsworth and Ray Rogers into an
ambitious crusade against the soft drink giant. A searing indictment of a
major corporate brand, The Coca-Cola Case takes us on a riveting legal
game of cat and mouse via the U.S. federal court and the Stop Killer Coke!
After five years of
struggle, will Coca-Cola yield in the end? And on the verge of a settlement,
what will the victims choose ?
cash, or power and integrity?
