Gay Rights Activists to Protest Coca-Cola Headquarters Today Over Sochi 2014 Olympics


The activist group AllOut is planning a protest at Coca-Cola's headquarters in Atlanta today at 12:30 pm, Atlanta INtown reports:

 The organization is asking for the soft drink giant to call for a repeal of Russia’s anti-gay “propaganda” law before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Coke is one of the largest sponsors of the Olympic games.

AllOut has been pressuring Coca-Cola executives to speak out against Russia's anti-gay laws and a petition has received more than 350,000 signatures urging the company to do so.

  1. This is very important for Coca-Cola. This is the day that they will decide if they want to be known as the "other" soft drink which represents HATE!

    This is what happens on Coca-Cola sponsored Olymopic torch relay.

    Gay activists arrested and police threatens to burn LGBT flag. Is Coca-Cola supporting this?

  6. Even straights are going to switch to Pepsi if Coca-Cola flubs this. It is as simple as that!
