How long will it take before the powers that be
in India refuse to allow multinationals to treat
Indians as guinea pigs? In what can only be
characterized as arrogance and impunity, we are
learning that Coca-Cola and Pepsi have continued
to sell soft drinks in India with dangerously
high levels of pesticides - three years after
even the government of India confirmed that these
products were dangerous. Perhaps the cola
companies know something that we do not? Are
Indians immune to high levels of pesticides?



¿Cuánto tiempo pasará hasta que India le prohíba
a las multinacionales tratar a los Indios como
conejillos de laboratorio? En lo que puede
caracterizarse sólo como arrogancia e impunidad,
estamos aprendiendo que Coca-Cola y Pepsi han
continuado comercializando en India sus bebidas
con altos niveles de plaguicidas - tres años
después de que aún el gobierno de India confirmó
que estos productos eran peligrosos. ¿Será quizás
que las compañías de refrescos de cola saben algo
que nosotros ignoramos? ¿Estarán los Indios
inmunizados contra altos niveles de plaguicidas?



Coca-Cola and Pepsi are in big trouble in
India. They have been banned entirely from
operating in the state of Kerala, and seven other
states have imposed bans on the companies. More bans are expected.
