Coca Cola workers in Turkey fight amidst widespread repression

Workers of Crown Bevcan, a key can supplier of the Coca-Cola Company and Coca-Cola Icecek, have been fighting hard for years to win the right to an independent union. The company is now using the courts to frustrate the workers’ right to choose their own union. There is an international campaign in support of these workers. In the meantime, repression of activists in Turkey continues with protest organisers, left wing party activists and many journalists all being targeted by the authorities.
