don't drink pepsi campaign poster

Pepsi's bottling plant in Burma was helping encourage tourism to the military controlled state where political prisinors were often held in dog cages. Aung San Suu Kyi's government in exile had called to help get Pepsi out. After less than just six months of campaigning by People & Planet (then Third World First), Pepsi pulled out. Aung San Suu Kyi sent a fax thanking students for their solidarity action.
