The Coke 16 is planning ( member here ) a boycott on Coca Cola, just waiting for the right time, since it has to be timed right to make an inpact, due to the treatment of minority employees in New York. To stay informed visit our page thecoke16.com and please like us in facebook.com/Thecoke16 this campaign runs along the Stop KillerCoke.org campaign which exposes the crimes commited by this corporation around the world, and now right here in the US. This is a great opportunity, when it gets going, to make a difference, not just for the workers of Coke, but for all employees nationwide, as other corporations see what happens when they do not deal fairly and ethically. God bless

I've been doing it ever since they made that ridiculous fee increase, now I keep getting the emails asking me back, I'm done, if we all did this with everything in life, we would take real control. Capitalism speaks the language of capital, even though individually we do not have a lot of wealth, together as one, we have more than we need to control the market completely. I have been preaching this for years now, but people can not go one week without certain products or services, they have been brain washed into " go ahead you deserve it", and they feel they would be getting the short end of the stick if they follow a real boycott. God bless you, in this boycott, I am in all the way.

I like this idea. Take the money that would have went to Netflix and support your local video store instead, if you still have a local video store.

Unfortunately they are all gone, they were taken out by Blockbuster which in turn got taken out by Netflix, tried time warner cable but their 5 buck per movie rental is terrible. I go to the movies if and when I find something extraordinary, needless to say, haven't been to the movies since Avatar, cause one of my daughters really wanted to watch it. Maybe we can target, later on, cable company one at a time untill they lower those ridiculous prices. God bless.

Yeah, movie rental places are going extinct, but there are still quite a few out there. I know there are a few in my immediate area, plus all of those Redbox and Blockbuster rental kiosks that have been popping up. Renting from those is probably the next-best way to get a Netflix-priced experience if you don't have a rental store available.

Yes, you are correct, I've seen those red box, at the supermarket. I think even if they don't have the "movie" you want to watch available, that is part of the sacrifice we have to pay, to show those big corporations that they can not brain wash us, with the "you deserve it" or language playing methods they use to make us feel guilty for not paying more for something that we can get for less. One prime example is the " Pre-Owned" car trick, it does not matter what they call it, it is still USED, but they dress it up, I've heard people say about their cars, it is not used, it is pre-owned, in their minds they are trying to justify the fact that they paid the same price for their used car, that they could have used to by a more economical price, for another make of vehicle new. I, for that matter, have never bought a new car, I can not see myself paying so much money for a vehicle that drops in price about $5,000 as soon as you drive it off the lot. Advertising is very powerful in brainwashing. Coke for example, is just sugar and water and some dye, yet they convince people that it is good for them to satisfy thirst, lol, if the world only knew... God bless.

I think they pretty much shot themselves in the foot with all the stunts they have pulled in the past 12 months. Price increases, the rolled back split of the mail and streaming services... lot of people have already discontinued membership... just another nail in the coffin...
