Dream for Darfur: Callout for Protest at Coke in Denver
On June 20, U.N. World Refugee Day, activists across the country will gather at stores and headquarters of four sponsors of the Beijing Olympics - Coca-Cola, General Electric, Swatch and Volkswagen - and demand that they use their partnership with the Chinese government to help end genocide in Darfur.
The Save Darfur Coalition and Dream for Darfur have called for a protest to be held at the Coca-Cola (Killer Coke) bottling company in Denver.
The Chinese government has not done enough to help end genocide in Darfur. Yet, as it prepares for the 2008 Olympic Games, the Chinese government is attempting to cloak itself in the Olympic ideals of peace and brotherhood and cover up its failure to act on Darfur.
And the Olympic corporate sponsors have refused to urge China to act.
The corporate sponsors cannot turn a blind eye to genocide. Join us on June 20 and demand that they speak out to China about Darfur.
The protest will be held at:
The Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
3800 Race St.
Denver, CO 80205
on Friday, June 20 at 10:00 a.m.
