Fizzled Out

To the Editor: It doesn’t take much research to figure out why we shouldn’t be supporting Coca-Cola products on this campus. A recent article by Daily News columnist Juan Gonzalez details the targeting of Coca-Cola union leaders in Columbia. The article notes three union leaders who have been murdered, allegedly by thugs employed by their Coca-Cola plant managers. The Columbian union leaders who are still alive have called for a worldwide boycott of Coke products until the violence ends. The students at UVM care about these issues and I would like to believe that the administration does as well. We can’t even buy bottled water on campus without supporting the Coca-Cola Corporation. President Fogel, take note: UVM’s contract with Coca-Cola must be ended.
