Coca-Cola vs. the People in India

Reviewed by Charlene Jones

After drying wells, poisoning drinking water, and distributing toxic sludge as fertilizer, a Coca-Cola bottling plant in a remote village of India was shut down. The Kerala State Pollution Control Board order was the latest episode in a battle between Coca-Cola and impoverished residents since the company began its $25 million operation in 2001. Pollution control authorities, political parties, the High Court system, and environmental groups became involved as the dispute grew into a global symbol of peoples' resistance to powerful trans-national corporations trying to snatch water rights.
