The Berlin Beijing Olympics Coalition started this petition to Coca-Cola and

Coca-Cola has not only remained silent as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) oppresses Uyghurs, but they also consider the expansion of their company in China while the CCP commits genocide. Coca-Cola has been complicit in the ongoing Uyghur genocide in multiple ways. 

Due to their dependence on a bottling plant in Xinjiang, Coca-Cola has lobbied against the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which is designed to hold the CCP accountable for their genocide against the Uyghur people. They also have a partnership with COFCO, a company that is a known violator of Uyghur forced labor. This is despite having an executive on the Human Rights Coalition Working to End Forced Labor.

Coca Cola is also a sponsor in the 2022 Beijing Olympics. The Olympics will be used by the CCP to spread positive propaganda and distract from the truth that they are committing genocide. This is not the first time Coca-Cola prioritized business interests with a genocidal regime over human rights. Coca-Cola also sponsored the 1936 Berlin Olympics, collaborated with Hitler, and made an effort to associate with Nazism during this time. 

Coca-Cola has a social responsibility to stop collaborating with oppressors and stand for human rights. It is imperative they do the following: 

  1. Acknowledge the ongoing Uyghur Genocide in China.
  2. Pull their sponsorship from the 2022 Beijing Olympic Games.
