U of M no longer selling coke

The University of Michigan is no longer going to carry coke cola products on it's campus.

the reason is because coke cola has bad labor practices in India and Colombia.

"The student group accused Coca-Cola of draining the water table in India, causing farmers' crops to go dry; distributing bottling plant sludge containing contaminants to Indian farmers as fertilizer; selling products that contain pesticides in India; and conspiring with paramilitary "

Yeah that does sound like some really bad labor practices.
