Hello All!

Next Tuesday night there's gonna be a chance for you to put your spinning to good cause and create peace in this world Or Someting like that!

It's the launch of a Global Boycott against Coca-Cola cos they've been using terror tactics against the workers in their Colombian Bottling Plants - So far 8 have been assassinated (some actually at work!) and many many more have been abused, threatened, "disapeared", displaced or exiled.

The Boycott is important as part of a wider protest that says that people should come before profit and that wars shouldn't be fought (and people killed) for economic motivation...

It is politiks an all but it should also be a good occasion cos they're gonna try and make it as colourful & attention grabbing as possible - that's where we come in!
There's gonna be a samba band which would provide a good rythmn for a'spinnin' & a'twirlin' and a stilt walker and all...
There's gonna be a general red/black/white theme to it all so now's the time to fish out those obscure scarlet flag poi you've never used! (no worries if you don't have any obscure scarlet flag poi tho!)

If you wanna know more about the politics, check out:

If, you couldn't care less about the politics, just come along for a spin:
