Hey all--

I'm doing an persuasive speech on why everyone should boycott Coke's products in my speech class. I've been poking around on the internet for information, and while I've found tons of good stuff, most of it has come from what my teacher calls "biased" sources, which I can't use in my speech. Does anyone have any good links to non-biased articles I could cite?

Thanks ahead of time. :D

Try mining this for sources:

It's probably the most comprehensive indictment of the company I've read.

Yeah, it's a pretty robust document. I'm really surprised that this isn't one of "the" sources that anti-Coke activists are floating around.

Me too, and that's just from reading the first few pages.

a few posts ealier - I posted notes from aspeaker session that interviewed two men who have been involved in fighting Coke in Columbia. It's 'biased' yes, but so is everything else in this world, even science - take THAT to your teacher.

GOod luck though. :D
