DescriptionCoca-colanization, also refered to as "coca-colonization" or "cocacolonization" links the mass importation of American goods and values, such as Coca cola and related products, with westernization and the loss of local goods and values. "Processed food and soft drink companies have encountered a lucrative market for their products in the developing nations…it is often easier to come across soft drinks than it is to find clean drinking water. Today Mexico is the country with the highest consumption of soft drinks per person. In indigenous communities, soft drinks are even used as an attribute for religious rituals." -- The United Academics website

NotesCollected at the Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair in 2013. "The Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair is an annual event for people interested and engaged in radical work to connect and learn through book and information tables, workshops, panel discussions, skillshares, films and more! We create an inclusive space to introduce new folks to anarchism, foster productive dialogue between various political traditions and anarchists from different milieus, and create an opportunity to dissect our movements' strengths, weaknesses, strategies, and tactics." -- Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair website Contact Us: You can email the Book Fair Committee at bayareabookfair@gmail.com Find us on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/BayAreaAnarchistBookFairps://bayareaanarchistbookfair.wordpress.com/
