Coke discourages screenings of labour documentary

It seems that a documentary critical of soft-drink giant Coca-Cola has left a bitter taste with the company. The multinational corporation has told a university film network planning to screen The Coca-Cola Case in several cities that the movie contains inaccuracies and violates a confidentiality agreement. The Montreal-based group...says Coke lawyers sent it a letter earlier this month issuing veiled legal threats if it proceeds with plans to host screenings in Canada, the United States and abroad... The Coca-Cola Case…links Coca-Cola to human rights abuses and anti-union tactics in Colombia and Guatemala...Their own legal counsel has said they are within their rights to show the film... A spokeswoman for Coca-Cola said the company took issue with the film on several points.
