Storyline

Two lawyers and labor rights' activists, Daniel Kovalik of the United Steel Workers of America and Terry Collingsworth of the International Rights Advocates, and their partner Ray Rogers of Corporate Campaign firmly believe that US multinational corporations should be held accountable for the shabby practices of their business associates throughout the world. To lead their battle, they resort to a law dating back to the origin of the American Constitution - The Alien Tort Claims Act - which allows foreigners to file suit in the U.S. against Americans who violate international laws. The film tells the story of their fight against one of America's stellar icons: the Coca-Cola company. Written by Anonymous

must all our products be slave made? aren't we past this?
5 July 2010 | by grewelgrewelSee all my reviews

well it seems the common human theme is to do what you can get away with this movie is basically a documentary about how corporations go into foreign countries and take advantage of the local population by paying them as low as possible, keeping them in horrendous conditions, and doing everything they can including collaborating with murderers to keep the slaves from organizing and getting their fare slice of the coca cola pie.

coca cola, along with many other corporations such as walmart are run in a dictatorship type business model which allows the CEO's and other top level people to get ridiculous amounts of money while the lower employees and foreign slaves gotta work for bread crumbs, not because the company cant afford to be good people and pay them fair, but because they can get away with treating them like slaves, and have no doubt it is slavery and a textbook definition of it.

this documentary was decently put together, could have been put together more professionally but it got its point across, and was very entertaining and interesting most north Americans except for me and a handful of others in the entire land, don't really care how much death and slavery went into the products that are bought, why slavery has grown so much lately, i ain't asking to pay them USA or Canadian minimum wage but at least have some decency and pay them what they deserve, working 6am-9pm every day for $1 per hour is wrong, and the whole concept of it is unamerican and uncanadian, its something Hitler or Kim Jong Il would do
