””””MANAGUA, April 3 (Xinhuanet) -- University organizations of the Social
Nicaraguan Movement (MSN) on Thursday celebrated "One Day Without Coca Cola,"
within the framework of the resumption of local protests against the US-led
invasion of Iraq.
””””This move was part of an international boycott of companies emblematic of
the nations taking part in the coalition invading Iraq.
””””Martha Guerrero, an activist of the Student Center of the Central American
University (CEUCA), said this measure "is part ofthe resumption of protests and
marches against the US-led genocidal war on Iraq, whose bombardment has killed
hundreds of children, women and men in the Middle East country."
””””Guerrero said that with the invasion of Iraq, the United Stateswants to
consolidate its role as the "policeman of the world" and place and remove
governments according to its geopolitical and geoeconomic interests. This
flagrantly encroaches upon the sovereignty of a nation and self-determination of
its people, she said.
””””She denounced the United States as the country in the world with the
largest biological, nuclear and chemical weapons.
””””Waldo Matamoros of UCA's radio program LANU, called on the student
community to participate in the international boycott of Texaco, Esso, Shell,
Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, McDonald's, Pizza Hut,Burger King, Subway and American
Donuts, as well as Tomy, Levis, Nike, Reebok and Fila.
””””"Let us remember that for each one of these products we don't purchase,
there will be one bomb less dropped on innocent people in Iraq," Matamoros said.
