What good has Coca Cola Bottling Company done for the communities in the Countries they operate in? No notable difference in Ghana! As you read, you will see that there is no notable difference in Kenya! Where?
"Piles of trash are burning outside the Mamakamau Shop in Uthiru, a suburb of Nairobi, Kenya. Sewage trickles by in an open trench.
Across the street, a worker at a bar gets ready for the lunch rush by scraping the hair off a couple of roasted goat heads. It's about 70 degrees, the sun is beating down, it smells like decay, and it's time for Coke to move some product.
Per-capita consumption of Coke is also low in India and China, relative to the U.S., Europe, and Latin America, but those two continents present less of an opportunity for the company than Africa... Coke will continue to compete in those countries, of course, but Africa, where Coke is the dominant brand, and where the middle class is just emerging, may offer a potentially greater payoff.” Click here to read the entire article in Business Week DISQUS by Duane Stanford.
Coca Cola is a member of Private Investors for Africa. PIA boldly proclaims: "PIA participates in external forums and supports dialogue
between various organizstions and the private sector”.
A PIA representative, Julie Bleeker, says in a response to a written request to work in collaboration with the Central Region of Cape Coast Ghana, towards PIA's stated mission for operations in Ghana writes: "Thank you for your email and your interest in the Private Investors for Africa (PIA). The PIA is a business coalition that brings together ‘ethically like-minded’ companies with the
objective of tapping into their business experience in Africa… All our projects in Africa are developed and executed by our members in collaboration with international organisations. Unfortunately, the PIA does not fund any external projects.”
Bleeker wrote: “Apologies…Kind
This insult was directed to not only His Excellency
This disrespectful and most disparaging e-mail from Julie Bleeker was posted in the blogger: “Promoting African American Interest in Afrika”
PIA also claim to be: “Creating world-class African Leaders” through training programs, although they insinuated in their letter, unjustly assuming, ignorantly misconstruing intent, refusing to work with Afrikan leaders; that Cape Coast Central Regional Senior Divisional Chief was asking for “charity”; that PIA basically, do not give 'welfare' to Afrikans. (welfare defined per my understanding of their perspective of charity.)
Furthermore, how do you expect to create these World-Class Afrikan leaders unless you create an atmosphere to do it by investing in education? Or are Afrikan students, such as seen below the 'color' of your World-Class Afrikan leaders you refer to? Or will these leaders that you invest in will also be "ethically like-minded" as your current group members?
Kudos Emily Brownstone! Yet, I say do not purchase any products from Coca Cola! For that matter, do not buy any products from these companies who operate under the deceitful racist umbrella of PIA!
The world looks on, particularly the USA, thinking that Afrika is a poor, filthy heathenistic Continent with illiterate Afrikans.
Many think that Afrikans need Western Christianity to enslave their minds as they lay foundations that are anti-Black, anti-Afrikan culture for foreign companies to infiltrate Afrika.
This they do with promises and lots of words that are not fulfilled while taking over Afrika’s resources!
Akin to the Transatlantic Slave Trade, South Afrikan Apartheid (coincidentally, which is where most of these companies are based); the slaughter of millions of Native Americans as their land was taken; we all stand by allowing another possible holocaust of Nations of people under the guise of “foreign investment”!
At the same time, Afrikans, whether educated or not get low pay then must pay exorbitant cost for utilities and imported oil products because they do not have access to their own natural resources. The large foreign corporations are shipping out Afrikas resources, making their money while controling not only the economy with World Bank in the lead, but PIA with the Standard Bank of South Afrika making certain to keep the Natives under thumb.
Afrikan Americans wake up! Wake up to the fact that Truth has been kept from you and you are as evil as these foreign “slave masters” if you stand idly by as they turn you against Afrikans with the alleged Afrikan “Scammer Schemes” etc!
The general public needs to wake up to the lies they see on TV, read in the papers and that of which they hear on radio and all of the other
things that have been either distorted and/or 'beefed- up' to counteract truths; that has been “gagged” or hushed by media who do not want to lose their sponsors.
Educate yourself, that is of course unless you just do not care like most Americans believing the mis- information thrown at us against Afrikans and Afrika.
Do not think for a second that other non-Afrikan Nations of people are not setting Afrikans up to appear to be the scammers. I am not denying that there are some Afrikan Country's who must come down hard on scamming, I am saying do not be so naive as to judge Afrika by the few or those coming into Afrika for the sole purpose of scamming.
Therefore, let me warn you! This Word will NOT return void! “Afrika will be restored beyond her former beauty”.
If you have been chosen to be used to achieve this, then you are one who will deal righteously, justly and fairly with Afrika. You others, “Your plans will come to naught!” Your companies will see a drastic fall in revenue and many of you will pull out of Afrika as loosing ventures that others may reap the benefits or your labors. All negatives and all that is unjust that you think to do will fail on Afrikan Soil.
