Comedian and activist Mark Thomas talks about his new book on the downsides of Coca Cola, at Waterstones, Bristol, 8th October at 6.30pm

Coca-Cola is the drink of freedom, choice and US patriotism, and one of the most iconic and influential brands in the world. Behind this carefully crafted image exists a company accused of environmental damage, human rights violations and questionable business practices.

Political activist and journalist Mark Thomas travelled to South America, India and the US to investigate the way in which Coca-Cola and its suppliers operate and the extent to which they uphold moral and ethical obligations.

Thomas, a long-term critic of Coca-Cola’s more controversial practices, found disturbing evidence which undermines its effervescent image as a force for good and which has prompted a global consumer backlash.

He joins Waterstone’s Bristol Galleries to talk about his new book “Belching out the devil” on Wednesday the 8th of October at 6.30. Tickets £3, available in store and redeemable against purchase of the book
