The headlines tell it all on this one.
- Detroit News: “U-M Suspends Coke Contract“
- Ann Arbor News: “U-M puts contract with Coke on ice“
- University Record: “U-M suspends purchase of Coca-Cola products“
- Michigan Daily: “‘U’ to suspend Coke contracts in milestone decision“
Congrats! This is a huge victory. It’s nice to see that something I had a small part in helping move forward has come to fruition. (I suggested and drafted the environmental standards of the code which were used to support the Indian water claims.) I think that Robâ€™s alter ego might have prevented him from finding the two big media hits:
A New York Times story: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/31/business/31coke.html
and a clip on CNN where they interview a bunch of random students who know nothing about the issues and complain about not being able to drink Coke. In response Ryan Bates proclaims â€œThey still have Redbullâ€?. To get to the clip follow the link and then click on the green-colored right hand side story â€œMichigan boots Coca-Cola.â€?
