schweizerische volkspartei (SVP) calls for Coca Cola boycott

A playful and humorous article on NZZ about a guy from the SVP who calls for Coca Cola boycott for showing support to LGBT


"Whether the party leaders recognize the dark, sparkling irony of their action is as unclear as a glass of coke. They are fighting a bill that they believe is too restrictive on freedom of expression and are now attacking a company that dares to express its opinion freely."

This is great, so drinking Coca-Cola evens out eating Chocolate from Laderach.

The one thing that could be seen as hypocratic by Coca-Cola is that they're happily trading with the likes of Russia, Brunei, Saudi-Arabia and selling their sugar stuff there, without saying a peep about rules there, while trying to be seen as open/modern here.

But then I boycot Coca-Cola already since they lowered their bottle size and kept the price the same

The difference is, Läderach doesn't do it in the name of his company while Coca Cola uses politics in a foreign country to advertise their product. Shouldn't they fight for this in the US? And where was Coca Cola when we voted about Minarets and head scarfs?

Great article. SVP will obviously keep being a source for amusement in the future too.

Well, I voted yesterday. And I didn't need Coca Cola to make up my mind.
