Coke for Kabul

Sounds good…except that according to this article, Coca-Cola will be setting up a bottling plant in Kabul. This in a country that is still suffering a drought, and desperately needs water for basic purposes. Considering the amount of water Coca-Cola uses in the production (about 3 liters of water for 1 liter of Coke), this simply sounds irresponsible. Such issues are being faced in India as well, so the idea depriving the population of much-needed water for basic needs (farming, drinking) is not a new one. Corporations continue their march over the needs of the masses.
