    Coca Cola guilty of creating water shortages

    Today's Observer takes a look at the American giant's negative impact on the irrigation systems:

    War on Want researchers have uncovered areas in Rajasthan where farmers have been unable to irrigate their fields after Coca-Cola established a bottling plant. The War on Want report also revealed similar problems in Uttar Pradesh. Already well-known are incidents in the southern Indian state of Kerala, where a Coke plant was forced to close two years ago after it was alleged to have contaminated local water.

    There is one simple thing we can all do, if we don't like Coca Cola's practices, and that is, don't buy Coca Cola products.
