Letter to NYU Administrators and University Senate Leaders

Letter to NYU Administrators and University Senate Leaders,

February 3, 2014

Dear NYU Administrators and University Senate Leaders,

We are reaching out to you hoping that NYU will do the right thing again and remove all Coca-Cola vending machines and products from campus facilities. The attached brochure entitled "Scandals and Lack of Ethics Plague NYU," makes it very clear why we are revisiting the Coca-Cola issue at the university.

As part of this new campaign to remove Coke from your campus, we will be distributing hundreds of thousands of copies of the brochure via the Internet and social media, along with printed copies to the public. We are also establishing a special website to focus on ethical questions relating to NYU and Coca-Cola. This will help concerned students, their parents, alumni and NYU faculty and staff better understand and wrestle with the issues at hand.

You should consider the potential ramifications of NYU administrators continuing to side with scofflaw Coca-Cola very seriously.

Scores of colleges and universities including, most recently, the City University of New York (CUNY), one of the world’s largest university systems, and College of the Atlantic off the coast of Maine, one of the nation’s smallest colleges, removed all Coca-Cola products from their campuses as a direct result of the campaign and the issues documented on KillerCoke.org and StopCokeDiscrimination.org.

These issues include serious human rights abuses that Coca-Cola is involved in from Latin America to Asia and right here in New York City and New York State.

Since NYU’s wrongful decision to return Coke back to campus in 2009 after banning it for four years, numerous books, documentaries, articles, reports and lawsuits have spotlighted Coca-Cola’s reprehensible human rights and environmental transgressions resulting in many more schools banning the sale and marketing of Coca-Cola products from their campuses. For a quick overview of the Campaign to Stop Killer Coke and many of the issues involved, you might want to view the 43-slide PowerPoint Presentation, "Coca-Cola: American Icon or Corporate Criminal?".

Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions. I’m available to meet to discuss resolving the NYU/Coca-Cola issue. I believe it would be in the best interests of the university to act quickly.

Peace & Justice,

Ray Rogers
Director
