Government officials murdering innocents in league with greedy

In india, & many other 3rd world countries , the larger corporations ,
MNCs & industry lobby is
literally running the governments. They are grossly abusing human
rights of people. Hereby, HRW calls upon GOI to rein in those

It is not the first time that , the harmful effects of colas – food
beverages are made public. The government is aiding the cola companies
in covering-up their crimes , in hiding harmful ingradients of their
products in the name of trade secrets. The government is yet to enact
a new food legislation  making it mandatory for all manufacturers of
food items  to specifgically mention  the type & quantity of
ingradients  on each food product. Even , under  the present food Act
itself the government officials can ban the harmful colas & other
products in the interest of public health & lives. Then how will they
get kickbacks ?

The cola companies are so cunning & ruthless that they have used
muscle power – rowdies , corrupt police personnel & assaulted harmless
peaceful protestors. The cola companies have purchased justice
previously in kerala & got favourable judgement. Due to presence of
cola companies , under water table has depleted in surrounding
villages. The farmers  are unable to grow their crops & are committing
suicides. One of the senior executive of a cola company – BEJOIS ,
WATCH’S and even made false complaint to police , but repeatedly
failed to turn-up for enquiry fearing that truth will come out. The
police closed the case subsequently.

In India , many medicines / drugs manufacturing companies are silently
murdering thousands of innocent patients. Some of these companies are
manufacturing counterfeit drugs of popular brands. Some MNCs , big
drug companies are in cheating business , they are just filling chalk
powder in tablets where as on the outer cover they mention
ingradients & quantities of it which are not at all their in the
product. The patients who are taking these chalk powder tablets ,
hoping that they will get cured of diseases are dying due to lack of
proper medication. These greedy , cheating drug companies are also
exporting  these counterfeit drugs to many third world countries like
Nigeria. The drugs controller of Nigeria has caught hold of  evidences
about these illegal drugs & their import from India. These companies
with the aid of mafia even tried to finish her off. The GOI is yet to
take action on her complaint. Silence of GOI bought for a price by
drug companies.

Just a few months back ,  there was a programme called “bad medicine”
on BBC channel , where in the drugs controller for nigeria proved that
95% of drugs in nigeria are fake & 80% of them are being exported from
india. These indian fake medicines are killing hundreds of innocents
in nigeria & she is crusading to control to control it. She has
survived murder attempts by the pharma drugs mafia linked to india.
She came over to india along with BBC correspondent & under- cover
they went to greedy industrialists. The said industrialists- FAKE
SPECIALISTS boasted how they fake the holograms , labels of big MNCs ,
how they add chalk powder , paracetamol to all tablets , how they
gifted imported car to a chief minister in return for protecting their
crimes fake businesses , etc. At the end, the drugs controller for
india , refused to give an interview, EVEN TO MEET the BBC
correspondent, fearing that all his beans will spill out. just 2 years
back in karnataka, honourable lokayukta justice N.Venkatachala raided
certain pharmaceutical companies & drugs control department officials
and unearthed a huge scam of Rs.200 crore of fake medicines. However
the government didn’t take any action as politicians were also part of
the ring & threw the report on a back burner. In india, how many are
dying due to fake medicines – the corrupt officials are covering the
numbers & shielding the murderers the greedy industrialists.

Previously  HRW has appealed to government authorities including
supreme court of India , but to no avail. It is a sad pointer to the
grim fact that in India there is no value for human lives & the long
arm of corruption has even reached the apex court. JAI HIND , VANDE

Kerala Passes Law Allowing Compensation From Coca-Cola

New Delhi: In an unprecedented move, the state legislature of Kerala
in India passed legislation today allowing individuals negatively
affected by Coca-Cola’s bottling operations in Plachimada to seek
compensation from the company.

The legislation sets up a tribunal – a three-member body – that has
the powers to adjudicate on matters related to claims of compensation
as a result of Coca-Cola’s reckless operations in Plachimada.

The tribunal has also been granted additional legal authority,
including the power to summons individuals and documents, as well as
seek and examine witnesses.

The adoption of the legislation by the Kerala state legislature
legally binds Coca-Cola to follow the directives of the tribunal.

The legislation is based on the report and recommendations of a High
Power Committee which released a report on March 22, 2010 holding Coca-
Cola responsible for causing pollution and water depletion in
Plachimada in the state of Kerala in south India.

Using the “polluter pays principle,” the High Power Committee had
recommended that Coca-Cola be held liable for Indian Rupees 216 crore
(US$ 48 million) for damages caused as a result of the company’s
bottling operations in Plachimada.

In its report, the High Power Committee said that, “The Committee thus
has compelling evidence to conclude that the HCBPL has caused serious
depletion of the water resources of Plachimada, and has severely
contaminated the water and soil.” HCBPL is the Hindustan Coca-Cola
Beverages Private Limited, a subsidiary of Atlanta based Coca-Cola

“The Committee has come to the conclusion that the Company is
responsible for these damages and it is obligatory that they pay the
compensation to the affected people for the agricultural losses,
health problems, loss of wages, loss of educational opportunities, and
the pollution caused to the water resources,” added the report.

“This is a landmark moment for the people of Kerala and India,” said
R. Ajayan of the Plachimada Solidarity Committee which has been
actively involved in the campaign since its inception. “The passage of
the bill means that people’s will in Kerala has now become law of the
land,” said R. Ajayan.

Community leaders in Plachimada have vowed to continue the campaign.
Activists are demanding that the state government also charge Coca-
Cola with criminal offenses because of the laws the company has

Coca-Cola’s bottling plant in Plachimada has been shut down since
March 2004 as a result of the community-led campaign which accused
Coca-Cola of exacerbating water shortages in the area and pollution.

The campaign against Coca-Cola in Plachimada has also enjoyed
tremendous international support, with colleges and universities in
the US, UK, Canada and Norway taking action against Coca-Cola. Two
other campaigns – in Kala Dera in Rajasthan and Mehdiganj in Uttar
Pradesh – are also seeking closure of the local Coca-Cola bottling

“This is a massive victory for the community of Plachimada and their
supporters who have campaigned successfully all the way from the
community to the state legislature, and that too against a global
multinational corporation. This should serve as a powerful reminder to
corporations across India that there are severe repercussions for
operating recklessly,” said Amit Srivastava of the India Resource
Center, an international campaigning group.

Kerala’s Bill To Penalise Coke
By Devinder Sharma

The Communist Party Of India (Marxist) -CPI (M) -led Kerala
government’s decision to bring in a bill: Plachimada Coca-Cola Victims
— Relief and Compensation Claims Special Tribunal —2011 Bill in the
State Assembly yesterday is certainly an epic decision. ‘The Bill
proposes to get compensation from the company and to form a tribunal
to provide time-bound compensation. The tribunal is to have a
chairman, a technical member and an administrative member.’
Piloting the bill, the water resources minister N K Premachandran
said: “Plachimada factory caused serious damage to the agriculture
sector and the area’s water resources, leading to serious shortage of
drinking water, among other problems. Metals like cadmium, chromium
and lead were also excluded from the factory and that caused health
problems to several people in that area. This caused skin as well as
respiratory problems to several people in that area.”
The Kerala bill follows the recommendations of a high powered
committee that suggested setting up a tribunal to realise Rs 216-crore
compensation from Coca Cola.
The Plachimada bill is historic in many ways. Far away in Ecuador, a
court held Chevron Corp. responsible for oil drilling contamination in
a wide swath of Ecuador’s northern jungle and ordered the oil giant to
pay $9.5 billion in damages and cleanup costs.
The amount — $8.6 billion plus a legally mandated 10 percent
reparations fee — was far below the $27.3 billion award recommended by
a court-appointed expert but appeared to be the highest damage award
ever issued in an environmental lawsuit.
But whether the plaintiffs — including indigenous groups who say their
hunting and fishing grounds in Amazon River headwaters were decimated
by toxic wastewater that also raised the cancer rate — can collect
remains to be seen. (Read the full report at:
Nevertheless, Ecuador has shown courage to stand up to the might of
the multinationals. The outgoing Kerala government too has to be
applauded for its courageous stand against Coca Cola which has been
faced with opposition in Plachimada for quite long now. Unlike India’s
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who has always allowed big business to
get away with murder, Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan has demonstrated
political sagacity by following the principle of ‘polluter pays’.
Although Coca Cola has denied any exploitation by saying: “we disagree
with the recommendations of the high powered committee and subsequent
follow-up”, I think it is high time that big business are taken to
task for the damage done to the environment and people’s livelihoods.
They cannot be allowed to escape liability by providing some alms
through the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) window.
In the days to come, I am sure both the Ecuadorian case against
Chevron Corp and Kerala’s tribunal against Coke will be hotly debated.
I am not sure whether the new government that comes up in Kerala will
demonstrate the same zeal to pursue the case, but surely these are
developments that will set the trend. More and more such cases (and
tribunals) across the country will certainly help in minimising the
resulting environmental damage.
Knowing the dubious role played by the Indian government (and some of
India’s top business houses) in protecting the commercial interests of
Union Carbide in the infamous Bhopal gas tragedy case that killed an
estimated 15,000 people, Coke will certainly put all efforts in
’educating’ the policy makers. Union Carbide escaped by paying a
paltry compensation of $ 470 million in 1989. Instead of making the
Union Carbide pay for the clean-up, the government has now come
forward to do the job. What a shame.
In Ecuador, the court decision ‘specifies that Chevron pay $6 billion
for cleanup of soil and water, $1.4 billion to put build health care
systems, $800 million for creating health care plans and attending to
cancer patients — the court-appointed expert had calculated 1,401
pollution-cased cancer deaths.
The balance is earmarked for recovering native plant species, water
distribution systems and repairing cultural damage.’
I only hope the Indian judiciary too learns from the example set by
the Ecuador judge. Even if the penalty is small, he has at least
sought investment in areas which no longer receives priority in
judicial (and economic) parlance.

-Are you disclosing full information to the consumers about contents
of your products ?

various soft drink manufacturers & bottled drinking water
manufacturers draw their raw material- water from the tube wells .
nowadays due to excessive usage of chemical fertilizers , pesticide ,
insecticides , the ground water table is polluted by these
chemicals .
these are very harmful for human beings. In some areas even the
water is poisoned by arsenic & flouride . In addition the soft drink
manufacturers use chemical flavours , food additives & preservatives
in their products . these are also harmful to human beings above
certain limits.
Some of the MNCs are practicing double standards , while in their
operations in the U.S.A they are strictly adhering to F.D.A norms as
consumer safety is strictly enforced there by the government , while
in India they have thrown to wind the consumer safety with respect to
indian operations. The situation is so worse that it has been
PESTICIDES IN THEIR FARMS. Hereby, i want following questions
by soft drink
manufacturers specifically coca-cola & pepsi, you are removing the harmful chemicals from the tube well water
ie your raw material ? you are ensuring the proper mixture of food additives ,
preservatives & flavours within safe limits ?
3.why not you are giving the exact quantity of all contents in the
soft drink of your’s on the product itself ?
4. are you exactly replicating your manufacturing & quality norms of
your U.S.A operations in india ? if not why ?
5.are you strictly adhering to food norms of government of india ?
6. are you keeping the F.D.A NORMS OF U.S.A as benchmark for your
operations in india ?
7. are you ready for the laboratory test of your product randomly
selected by the consumer ?
8. Are they using genetically modified food ingredients ?
9. are they using ingredients sourced from animal origins ?.


The following statistics may not give India much reason to cheer. The
country is still the second largest counterfeit medicines exporter to
the European Union in 2007, although it has forfeited the first
position it held in 2006 to Switzerland.
As per data released by the European Commission on Monday, India
stands second after Switzerland in the list of top exporters of fake
medicines to the EU in 2007 with 35% of the total fake drugs seized.
In 2006, India was the leading source of fake drugs exported to the
Next to Switzerland and India, the United Arab Emirates comes third
with 15% of the total amount seized, according to the survey titled,
’2007 customs seizure of counterfeit goods at EU’s external border’.
In 2006, India, together with the UAE and China, was responsible for
more than 80% of all counterfeit medicines.
Overall, as per the 2007 survey, China remains the main source of
counterfeit goods, with almost 60% of all articles seized coming from
there. Cigarettes and clothing continue to represent a large
proportion of all seizures comprising respectively 35% and 22% of the
total amount of articles seized. In particular, medicine seizures have
shown a dramatic increase of over 50%.
Also, in 2005, based on the European Commission’s Taxation and Custom
Union (TAXUD) statistics, 75% of fake medicines cases originated from
India, 7% from Egypt, and 6% from China. According to an earlier EU
report, counterfeiters accept crude methods for manufacturing drugs
such as filling the capsules with a mixture of brick dust with yellow
paint used to mark roads to give it a colour similar to that of
genuine medicine and furniture polish to give a nice, shiny finish.
The EU, in its statement issued in 2007, said, “Health and safety are
a big issue, as witnessed by the sizeable figures relating to seizures
of pharmaceutical products. The emergence of India in this sector
reflects the developing industrial capacity of this nation and
highlights the reality that counterfeiting is carried out on an
industrial scale, in all sectors where a potential profit is
In 2007, customs registered over 43,000 cases of fake goods seized at
the EU’s external border, compared to 37,000 in 2006.
The number of articles seized decreased from last year’s peak of 128
million articles to around 79 million. This is due to a growing number
of seizures involving smaller quantities of counterfeit and pirated
articles. However, cigarettes and clothing continue to be faked in
large quantities and there has been a worrying increase in sectors
that are potentially dangerous to consumers like medicines, electrical
equipment, and personal care products, EU said in its statement.
In 2006, India was in second position in ready-to-wear accessories
segment with 19% article seized, following China . “Counterfeiting
continues to pose a dangerous threat to our health, safety and our
economy,” warns EU Taxation and Customs Commissioner László Kovács.
Enraged by the increasing fake drug supply, the European Commission
had launched a public consultation on the dangers of counterfeit drugs
and had invited ideas to be submitted for regulatory reform. As per
foreign media reports, the commission plans to plug in the
deficiencies in the supply chain integrity through strict adherence to
Good Distribution Practice (GDP), Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
standards and transparency in the distribution chain.

Action on fake drugs urged by WHO

A global taskforce to fight drug counterfeiting needs to be set up,
the World Health Organization has said.

Fake drugs are thought to account for one in 10 drugs sold worldwide,
and medicines counterfeiting is a growing and lucrative business, it
It urged customs, police and drug enforcements agencies to shut down
the sophisticated production networks.
The call comes as a meeting of regulatory, pharmaceutical and consumer
representatives takes place in Rome.
Howard Zucker, the assistant director-general for the WHO for health
technology and pharmaceuticals, said fake drugs could be deadly.

He said: “People don’t die from carrying a fake handbag or wearing a
fake t-shirt. They can die from taking a counterfeit medicine.”
The WHO suggests that bar-coding medicines, increasing surveillance
methods and improving both patient and healthcare worker education
could help ensure fewer people take fake drugs.
The United Nations health agency also wants those charged with
tracking down the culprits to work together and share more
Drugs counterfeiting is most common in developing countries where life-
saving drugs can be sold on the streets.
But there are a growing number of cases of fake medicines being
discovered in Europe - although these tend to be lifestyle drugs.
Potentially lethal
A spokeswoman for the WHO medicines and health technology department
fake Tami-flu had been found in the Netherlands and Spain.
”The counterfeiters are getting more sophisticated and fake drugs are
now even entering the official distribution systems,” she warned.
She said there was also a need for a universal approach as in some
countries drug counterfeiting was not even considered a crime or was
thought of as an offence that was not very serious.
”But this is a crime that can kill people,” she said.
A spokeswoman for the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory
Agency said there had been four cases of fake drugs being discovered
in Britain the past 10 years. The last one was in July, she said.
”There are nearly 650 million prescriptions issued in the UK every
year so four cases in the last 10 years is minimal.
”But we recognise that there’s an increasing problem, and have our own
anti-counterfeiting strategy.”
The agency also assists eastern European countries in their fight
against drugs counterfeiting.
The spokeswoman added that a suspicious batch of anti-flu drug Tamiflu
seized in the UK last month by the agency had turned out to be
illegally imported rather than counterfeited.


Imagine the outcry if 500 people in a developed country such as the US
or UK died after being given a fake medicine. Then consider that in
the early 1990s a similar number of children died of kidney failure in
India, Haiti, Bangladesh and Nigeria after taking fake paracetamol
syrup contaminated with a toxic solvent. Barely anyone noticed bar
their families and a few doctors.
Their deaths represent just one documented case of a trade in illicit
pharmaceuticals that claims countless lives each year. Victims, mostly
among the world’s poorest, unwittingly buy fake medicines that often
contain toxic substances or little or no active ingredients, yet
purport to combat the most common preventable killers, including
malaria, tuberculosis and typhoid.
Victims, mostly among the world’s poorest, unwittingly buy fake
medicines that often contain no active ingredients
The scale of the problem is laid bare this month in a review published
in The Lancet Infectious Diseases (vol 6, p 602). In south-east Asia,
for example, half of all medicine sold is thought to be fake, much of
it counterfeit versions of new anti-malaria drugs based on the
molecule artemisinin, which many believe will be vital in curbing the
spread of the disease. In Cambodia, a survey revealed that 71 per cent
of the artemisinin-derived drug artesunate sold is fake, while across
south-east Asia, 53 per cent of artesunate packs sold in 2002 and 2003
were faked, says lead author Paul Newton of the University of Oxford.
”We’re desperately worried that these counterfeit derivatives will
follow the real ones into Africa,” Newton says. “The very high
prevalence of counterfeit artesunate in Asia has emphasised the
importance of tackling this trade.” Unless it can be stopped, he
warns, there is little point in spending vast amounts of money
developing new drugs, as they will only be immediately undermined by
ineffective or toxic counterfeits.
The World Health Organization is so worried by the trend that this
November in Bonn, Germany, it will launch an International Medical
Products Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce, or IMPACT. The aim is to unite
all parties involved in tackling in the problem, from pharmaceutical
companies, drug regulators and distributors through to Interpol and
customs officers.
Experts fear the trade in counterfeit pharmaceuticals kills more
people and causes more harm than the trade in illegal narcotics. And
it isn’t a great deal less lucrative. In 2005, the US Food and Drug
Administration estimated that worldwide sales of fake drugs exceeded
$3.5 billion, but other estimates suggest the figure is 10 times as
high. The Center for Medicines in the Public Interest, a charity
backed by the US pharmaceutical industry, predicts that global sales
of fake drugs will reach $75 billion by 2010 unless the trade is
However, no one can yet be sure how many fake drugs are sold. The
pharmaceutical industry first raised the alarm 20 years ago, but law
enforcement agencies, governments and charities that donate medicines
have paid scant attention. As too have researchers. In his review,
Newton found that just 43 academic papers have been published on fake
drugs, only one of which used scientifically acceptable methodology.
What’s more, a survey he conducted in Laos revealed that two out of
three pharmacists and four of five consumers didn’t even realise fake
drugs existed. The reality is that this trade threatens to undermine
global attempts to combat infectious diseases that kill 14 million
people, 90 per cent of them in developing countries.
A survey in Laos revealed that two out of three pharmacists and four
out of five consumers didn’t know fake drugs existed
IMPACT will initially focus its efforts in five areas: anti-
counterfeiting technology; harmonising legislation; tougher
enforcement; strengthening regulatory agencies; and better publicity
warning consumers about fakes, says co-founder Howard Zucker, who is
the WHO’s assistant director-general for health technology and
Strengthening regulatory agencies is key, argues Newton, especially in
the one-third of countries worldwide where they barely function. “If
you don’t have a functioning drug regulatory agency, you can’t inspect
the drug supply, enforce border checks, prosecute counterfeiters or
root out bribes and corruption.”
Zucker agrees this is a priority. “If there’s no enforcement, nothing
else has any teeth,” he says. So too does the Global Fund to Fight
AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which spends millions of dollars each
year providing drugs to treat these major diseases. Spokeswoman Rosie
Vanek says the Global Fund has already approved requests for technical
assistance to improve national drug quality-control labs and bolster
regulatory authorities. Vanek also stresses that the Global Fund has
established measures to “ensure to the greatest possible degree the
authenticity of commodities purchased with Global Fund resources”.
But Valerio Reggi of the WHO, who will coordinate IMPACT from Geneva,
Switzerland, says it won’t be easy to root out corruption, especially
in countries where inspectors are paid so little that it is worth the
risk of taking bribes to turn a blind eye to the trade.
Newton also says that donor agencies must subsidise life-saving drugs
so that the real versions price counterfeiters out of the market. “The
key is to beat them at their own game.” This strategy is supported by
the Global Fund, which provides drugs either free or at a small fee.
One recommendation is to subsidise real versions of drugs so that they
price counterfeiters out of the market
The pharmaceutical industry is less convinced, however. “As long as
the cost per unit of a counterfeit is lower than the street price of
the real thing, there will be counterfeits,” says Harvey Bale,
director of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical
Manufacturers. He points out that paracetamol (acetaminophen) and the
antibiotics ampicillin and amoxycillin are the most widely
counterfeited drugs in developing countries, even though they are also
the cheapest.
A number of initiatives are to be unveiled in Germany. One option
IMPACT will pursue is to give each packet of drugs a code number that
can only be read when the seal is broken. The consumer can phone the
factory with the number to check their medicine is genuine. Zucker
says the precise details are secret for now, but will be revealed in
Others include off-the-shelf legislation that nations could adopt to
combat counterfeiting, while IMPACT will launch a study to assess the
growing threat of fake medicines sold on the internet, and another to
gauge the scale of counterfeiting in Africa.
Newton warns not to underestimate the counterfeiters, as their
production techniques have become increasingly sophisticated. Often
they include small amounts of the real drug to make them more
difficult to spot than if they contained no active drug. This practice
that promotes the development of drug resistance. “It means that
bacteria or parasites see very low concentrations of the active
ingredient, enough to select for resistance,” says Newton. That could
mean future generations of drugs could become obsolete.
Fake packaging is also increasingly sophisticated, says Newton. Some
of the artesunate packs he found in Asia even carried holograms like
those on the originals. “At the moment, the counterfeiters are
winning.” But Zucker is more upbeat, and sees the creation of IMPACT
as evidence that there is at last the political and international will
to do something. “My perception is that there’s momentum.”
Churning them out
• In 1995 in Niger, some 60,000 people were inoculated with fake
meningitis vaccine after authorities received a donation of 88,000
doses of purported Pasteur Merieux and SmithKline Beecham vaccines
from neighbouring Nigeria. The vaccines contained no traces of the
true active ingredient.
• 192,000 patients in China reportedly died over the course of 2001
after taking fake drugs. In the same year Chinese authorities closed
1300 factories while investigating 480,000 cases of counterfeit drugs
worth $57 million. In 2004 they arrested 22 manufacturers of grossly
substandard infant milk powder and closed three factories after the
death of more than 50 infants.
• In North America, there have been recent reports of various
counterfeits: human growth hormone; atorvastatin, which is used to
lower cholesterol and treat heart disease; erythropoietin, used to
alleviate anaemia; filgrastim, used to treat people who have had
either leukaemia or a bone marrow transplant; and the anti-cancer
drugs germcitabine and paclitaxel.
• Antiretrovirals, a long-term drug therapy that helps stop people
with HIV from developing AIDS, are already being faked in central
Africa. So far, counterfeit versions of the drug combinations

 Since April 22, 2002, residents of Plachimada, Kerala have been on
vigil—24 chours a day, 7 days a week—outside the gates of Coca-Cola’s
bottling plant in their village. The panchayat (village council) has
refused Coca-Cola the license to operate and the bottling facility,
the largest Coca-Cola bottling facility in India, has been
‘temporarily’ shut down and the struggle is continuing make it

 Local residents in Mehdiganj, near the holy city of Varanasi, are
also leading a struggle against Coca-Cola and over 1,500 members
demonstrated against Coca-Cola in November 2004. Protesters were met
at Coca-Cola’s factory gates by ARMED police, sent to “protect’ the
plant. This was no mere threat, the protesters were severely beaten
 At Coca-Cola’s bottling facility in Kala Dera, near Jaipur,
Rajasthan, the sinking water table has created water shortages for
over 50 villages. Over 2,000 people marched in August 2004 to protest
Coca- Cola’s practices.

 In Kudus village in Thane district in Maharashtra, villagers are
forced to travel long distances in search of water which has dried up
in their area as a result of Coca- Cola’s bottling operations. Coca-
Cola has built a pipeline to transport water from a river to its
plant, and activists opposing the pipeline and the facility are
regularly harassed by local police.

Sensing a pattern, more than 7,000 people in Sivaganga, Tamil Nadu,
mostly women, turned out in April 2003 to protest a proposed Coca-
Cola factory in their village. Residents are justifiably worried that
Coca-Cola’s joint operations with a sugar mill in the area will lead
to water scarcity and contamination.


THOUSANDS of people all across India are protesting Coca-Cola’s
operations in India. Led primarily by women, Adivasis (Indigenous
Peoples), Dalits (lower castes), agricultural laborers and farmers, a
significant grassroots movement has emerged in India to hold Coca-
Cola accountable for its crimes in India and internationally. The
campaign is growing and winning extremely important battles in the
quest for justice. ...AGAINST CRIMES A PATTERN of ABUSE has emerged
for Coca- Cola’s bottling operations in India. Coca-Cola is Guilty of:

1.Causing Severe Water Shortages in Communities Across India
2. Polluting Groundwater and Soil Around its Bottling Facilities
3.Distributing its Toxic Waste as ‘Fertilizer’ to Farmers
4.Selling Drinks with High Levels of Pesticides in India, including DDT
— sometimes 30 times higher than EU standards


Communities living around Coca-Cola’s bottling facilities are facing
severe hardships. A majority of the community members affected by Coca-
Cola’s indiscriminate practices are also some of the most marginalized
communities in India- Indigenous Peoples, lower castes, low-income and
agricultural day-laborers.


New Indian Express, June 02, 2005, Thursday Did the law break the law,
asks Krishna Iyer

KOCHI: Justice V R Krishna Iyer demanded a second look into the Coco
Cola judgment made by the High Court on Wednesday. Alleging that the
modified decision smacks of bench shopping by powerful litigant,
Justice Iyer said the circumstances of the case when fully disclosed
may suggest a ‘riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma’.

The strongly worded statement of Justice Iyer is as follows:
I have great respect for the judiciary of which I have been a member,
both in Kerala and in the apex court.

But criticism of judiciary pronouncements when one considers them as
aberrational is a failure of a jurist’s duty to the Constitution and
the non-exercise of the fundamental right of freedom of _expression.
We are governed by the Constitution but it has been said that the
Constitution is what the judges say it is.

This does not mean that the ‘robed brethren’ can go haywire reduce the
law to mere judicial ipse dixits. I suspect the wisdom and
constitutionality of the Coco Cola judgment pronounced by the Division
Bench of the Kerala High Court.

May be I am wrong or may be the concerned judges are in error. When
license has been refused for the Coco Cola by the local authority
which is necessary under the Municipal Law the court cannot hold
that, in certain circumstances, the license may be deemed to have been
granted, thus nullifying the statute.

The procedure of invoking the jurisdiction of that court for getting
an earlier decision modified smacks of ‘bench shopping’ by a powerful

The circumstances of the case when fully disclosed, may suggest a
‘riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma’.

Coco Cola jurisprudence as laid down by the Court does require a
second look although I must say that our judges in the High Court
generally command my respect. I have not had the time to investigate
dialectically the many dimension of this pronouncement.

I must also confess that I have not fully investigated how, in the
face of earlier decision, a fresh case was instituted before a
different bench. This calls for a closer study of the procedure
adopted and the substantive law declared when I consider curious and

In short, ‘Coco Cola’ as a law had made an imbroglio of our writ
jurisdiction and jurisprudence. Already, Prof Mohammed Ghouse long
ago, in a thoughtful article, felt that the highest court has at times
becomes a conscience-keeper of vested interests.

I am sure that in India today, the one high institution which holds
aloft people’s confidence is the judiciary. ‘Ye, are the salt of the
earth; but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be
salted’. (Bible).


Coca-Cola’s main Latin American bottler, Panamco, is on trial in the
US for hiring right-wing  aramilitaries to kill and intimidate union
leaders in Colombia. SINALTRAINAL union leaders and organizers have
been subject to a gruesome cycle of violence unleashed by Colombian
paramilitary forces in complicity with the Coca- Cola’s Colombian
bottling subsidiary.

Since 1989, eight union leaders from Coca-Cola bottling plants have
been murdered by paramilitary forces, some of them even attacked
within their factory’s gates. Workers have also reported being
intimidated with threats of violence, kidnapped, tortured, and
unlawfully detained by members of the paramilitary working with the
blessing of, or in collaboration with, company management.

Water and land is central to agriculture and over 70% of Indians make
a living related to agriculture.Water scarcity and polluted soil and
water created by Coca-Cola has directly resulted in crop failures—
leading to a LOSS of LIVELIHOOD for thousands of people in India. More
than half of India’s population lives BELOW THE POVERTY LINE, and
disrupting farming is a matter of LIFE AND DEATH for many in India.

Ironically, communities most impacted by Coca- Cola’s bottling
operations cannot even afford to buy Coca-Cola products. Coca-Cola’s
indiscriminate pollution of the common groundwater source is a major
long-term problem. It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to
clean the groundwater resource through technology, and future
generations are now subjected to drinking polluted waters courtesy
Coca-Cola. Or they can install water pipes to their homes and pay for
clean drinking water, which most CANNOT afford to do. Distribution of
toxic waste as fertilizer to farmers around its bottling facilities
has created a PUBLIC HEALTH NIGHTMARE. The long term consequences of
exposure to the toxic waste is not yet known and the worst is yet to
come. Coca-Cola is committing crimes against humanity in india.

Shri. Sunil Thomas ,
Honourable Registrar (Administration) / RTI Appellate Authority ,
Supreme Court of India,

Honourable Sir / Madam ,
Subject : APPEAL No.300/2010
Reference : Your Letter No.F.1/RTI/A.300/2010 dated  30.07.2010

A  person committing a criminal offense is a CRIMINAL. The Person  who
aids a criminal in his criminal act , in hiding the criminal act , in
destroying the evidences  of criminal act  is also  a CRIMINAL. The
person whose duty is to prevent criminal acts from  happening , who
intentionally fails in his preventive duties  and  thereby
facilitating  the criminal in committing crime is also a CRIMINAL.
Information  given by government  authorities are EVIDENCES , denial
of information  amounts to hiding  of evidence ,  improper , half
truth information given  amounts to MANIPULATION & DESTRUCTION OF
EVIDENCES. In this way many of our public servants including judges &
police themselves are criminals , but are not prosecuted by the
authorities , why ?
Due to delay in giving appropriate  information , many crimes have
taken place which could have been prevented. As the delay in taking
action , giving information / evidence is on the part of government
authorities , the issue of TIME BARRED FOR ADMISSABILITY doesn’t
At the outset , we express  our whole hearted respects to the honest
few  public servants in public service including judiciary. However,
the corrupt in public service don’t deserve  respect as individuals –
as they are  parasites in our legal system. Still we respect the
chairs they occupy but not the corrupt individuals.

All the following articles / issues , whole articles published in the
weblinks mentioned below forms part of this appeal. The term “JUDGE”
mentioned throught includes all public servants  discharging  judicial
functions right from taluk magistrates , quasi-judicial officers to
Chief Justice of India.

Indian Legal / Judicial System is manipulated at various stages & is
for sale. It is a SHAME. The persons who raise  their voice seeking
justice  are silenced in many ways. The criminal nexus has already
attempted to silence me in many ways . If anything untoward happens to
me or to my family members , my dependents , Honourable Chief Justice
of India together with jurisdictional police officer will be
responsible  for it.

Hereby, we do once again offer our conditional services to the
honourable supreme court of India & other government authorities, in
apprehending criminals including corrupt judges & police. Herewith  ,
we once  again  appeal to the honourable supreme court of India , to
consider this as a PIL Appeal in public interest.

The public servants & the government must be role models in law
abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a
mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the
teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same
mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished &
reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-
free under his patronage.  even if a police , public  servant commits
a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the
aggrieved. just think , if a judge himself that too of apex court of
the land itself commits crime - violations of RTI Act ,
constitutional  rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the
public from  performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what
happens ? it  gives a booster dose to the rich & mighty , those in
power , criminals  in public service to committ more crimes. that is
exactly what is  happenning in india. the educated public must raise
to the occassion &  peacefully , democratically  must oppose this
criminalisation of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can

Kindly go through the following articles & provide justice by giving
complete truthful information to us , by publicly answering the
following questionnaire in an unambiguous  manner.

The constitution of India has prescribed certain FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES to
each citizens of India. It is the duty of every citizen to protect &
uphold the dignity , honour of our democratic institutions , to
protect our national integrity , to respect & protect the rights of
our fellow citizens. No constitutional authority has  the right to
obstruct the discharge of these duties by citizens of India. No legal
privileges of constitutional functionaries is superior over the
We need rights to perform our duties. Constitution of India has
guaranteed those rights as FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS to all citizens of India
& by birth itself everyone of us has secured HUMAN RIGHTS as
individuals. To express ourselves , we need information , data feed
back , to ascertain whether we are getting equal opportunity ,
whether  we are getting equitable justice , etc , we need
information . so ,
basically Right To Information  is an inalienable part of our
fundamental rights & human rights. What RTI Act has done is fixed
time  limit , responsibilities of public servants up to  certain
extent. However the citizen’s fundamental right & human right to seek
information extends far beyond the scope of RTI Act.
Hereby , we seek complete  truthful information from supreme court of
India , with respect to my RTI application appeal no :  APPEAL NO.
SERVANTS  IN PUBLIC INTEREST &  JUSTICE. Hereby ,  we request you to
register this appeal as a PIL  petition & to ascertain the stand of
apex court on various matters  raised in my RTI Application , in
public interest & equitable justice. JAI HIND. VANDE MATARAM.

MYSORE - 570017.

Honourable DG & IG of Police ,

Vijayanagar Police Station,

Honourable Sir,
   Subject : Violation of FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS by
Honourable Chief Jusice of India &  H.E.Honourable President of India
& other public servants
                   Karnataka Police are NOT registering & acting on
my  complaint  to them dated  04.07.2009

A  person committing a criminal offense is a CRIMINAL. The Person  who

the corrupt in public service don’t deserve  respect as individuals –
as they are  parasites in our legal system. Still we respect the
chairs they occupy but not the corrupt individuals.

All the following articles / issues , whole articles published in the
weblinks mentioned below forms part of this appeal. The term “JUDGE”
mentioned throught includes all public servants  discharging  judicial
functions right from taluk magistrates , quasi-judicial officers to
Chief Justice of India.

Indian Legal / Judicial System is manipulated at various stages & is
for sale. It is a SHAME. The persons who raise  their voice seeking
justice  are silenced in many ways. The criminal nexus has already
attempted to silence me in many ways . If anything untoward happens to
me or to my family members , my dependents , Honourable Chief Justice
of India together with jurisdictional police officer will be
responsible  for it.

The Vijayanagar police in mysore stated that  they don’t have legal
jurisdiction to book the criminals I have mentioned in the complaint &
by taking a statement from me to that effect  closed the case
temporarily on  11.09.2010  after sitting over the complaint  for
years together. Is it not the  duty of  DG&IGP to seek the permission
from home ministry to legally prosecute the alleged criminal VVIPs ?
Why he was silent ? Ofcourse the lower rung police officers
practically don’t have power to prosecute high & mighty ?

Hereby , I do request the  DG & IG OF Police , Government of Karnataka
to seek the legal sanction from union home ministry & Karnataka state
home ministry , for the prosecution of  below mentioned criminal VVIPs
& to reopen my complaint here with.

In India , as per constitution of india all citizens are equal , have
right to equal oppurtunity & equitable justice irrespective of caste ,
creed , religion , etc. the constitution has guaranteed these to every
Indian citizen by way of CONSTITUTIONAL FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS. Also ,
every humanbeing on earth has got HUMAN RIGHTS, by virtue of his / her
forgotten this & are acting as lords , autocrats - unquestionable
appointed to serve the public, public are the kings of democracy ,
they are the taxpayers & paymasters of this very same public servants.
In India , corruption has spread it’s tentacles far & wide , it has
not even spared the judiciary. The last resort of commonman for
seeking justice is judiciary , even there corruption has spread.In
present day India , if one is rich , he can committ any type of crime
& get away clean from courts of law. there are corrupt police
officials who modify FIR , suppress evidences ,manipulate evidences ,
takes up different line of investigation ,  fix innocents , coughs-up
false confessions from innocents by 3rd degree torture , file B report
closing the case , decides not to appeal in higher court of law ,
etc , ALL FOR A PRICE. Just see the list of millionnaire police
officials who are caught by karnataka lokayukta.
Next step , the prosecutor & defense advocate strikes a deal ,
manipulates evidences , manipulates way of presentation of case & way
of argument favouring the rich crooks for a price , as observed in
high profile BMW case involving public prosecutor IU KHAN & defense
counsel RK ANAND. In this way , if corrupt police & advocates ,
together manipulate the due process of law , the presiding judge is
left high & dry eventhough the judge is honest, he is left helpless.
to add to this , when the judge himself is corrupt , people’s last
hope , democracy is dead. Nowadays we are hearing too many reports of
irregularities in judiciary.
our publication has filed many appeals as PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION
before hon’ble supreme court of India but the vested interests there
The issues raised by us for sample :
1. sale of fake medicines & adulterated food products , beverages ,
colas affecting the health of millions of Indians & public of
importing nations who are importing the same dangerous products from
india .
2. demolition , eviction of houses , lands belonging to poor dalits ,
tribals , backward castes by government authorities whereas
regularising  illegal land encroachments , illegal buildings by high &
mighty people in total disregard to law. in some cases government has
even made contempt of court , by defying court orders & enacting
special laws all to favour rich land grabbers.
3. take the cases corporate frauds, violation of labour laws ,
pollution board laws , tax laws , etc by companies.
4. The reports in media about certain highly placed public servants
leaking india’s defense secrets to foreign countries & some
politicians , film stars attending parties hosted by anti nationals
DAWOOD IBRAHIM & underworld dons in gulf countries & elsewhere. these
type of appeals are for public good , national security , as public
are affected by them. still supreme court of india is not considering
our repeated PIL Appeals.the courts have the authority to consider
even a post card , e-mail as a PIL Appeal , the courts even have the
right to initiate suo-motto action for public good , inspite of
absence of any appeals / complaints. over & above this at the time of
my very first appeal my income was very low & i was a retrenched
factory employee who was eligible for free legal aid, even free legal
aid was not given to me. Now , even to my repeated RTI Appeals  the
Honourable chief justice of India & H.E.Honourable President of India
are not giving the requested information . these action of CJI &
PRESIDENT OF INDIA is aiding high & mighty criminals , anti
nationals , amounts to suppression of information , truth ,
evidences , which is a cognizable offence.

We do have highest respect for all constitutional bodies , public
