La Casa Cultural Latina at UIUC Removes Coke Machine

La Casa Cultural Latina at the University of Illinois has removed the Coca-Cola vending machine as a response to student concerns about Coca-Cola's history of labor abuses in Colombia and environmental degradation in India. The Coalition Against Coke Contracts supports La Casa's decision and urges other University departments, cultural houses, and programs to request the removal of Coca-Cola vending machines on their premises.
