ColaLife Twittermob Rally! Join us in Trafalgar Square or online

ColaLife AidPod in Zambia 3

This Friday (17/7/09), 3pm Trafalgar Square, we will be gathering in Trafalgar to celebrate ColaLife and see the giant aidpod take its rightful place on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square!

What is ColaLife?

You can buy a Coca-Cola virtually anywhere in developing countries and yet 1 in 5 children die before the age of 5 from largely preventable causes like dehydration from diarrhoea. ColaLife is a campaign to get Coca-Cola to open up its distribution networks in developing countries to carry ‘social products’ such as oral rehydration salts, vitamin A tablets, condoms etc >>more
>> Bob Geldof wishes us luck
