How do people feel about action against Coke machines?

Sabotaging them (I've heard lots salty water renders them unusuable)?
Sticking out of order signs on them?
"Ethically out of order" signs?

"Ethically out of order" signs sound good... :)

There's been some student protests against Coke machines in Michigan, I think. They've been banned in several schools if what I've heard is correct.

That's cool.

I was wondering more about direct action though. Like, do people advocate violence against the machines (breaking them)? Is putting signs on them a waste of time, or not?

That stuff.

I think it would be cool to post articles from fuck_coke on them. That might give people more of a reason not to buy from Coke than just saying Coke is unethical.

I'm making a little something that I'll hopefully be able to stick around. The out of order part, with some bullet points on Coke's main crimes, then a tear away bit with websites to more info. I don't think people are going to bother to read entire articles when they want a soft drink.

I hope that you will make a post in this community with a link where we can download the file and print it up for ourselves.

I'll see what I can do.
