I know it’s been talked about before on this board but I thought folks might like to see the picture.

It's not really Nazi Coke. This item was made before the Nazi party existed, when the Swastika used to be a symbol of good luck.

The coke Nazi connection is well known. As most of the folks here know Fanta was invented by a Nazi.

The picture of the coke swastika was just interesting so I posted it.

How do the Coke fans fire back? That Pepsi started the KKK?

Well, for arguments sake, one could reference the activist/student uproar that accompanied Pepsi's business dealings in Burma in the mid '90s, forcing it to ratchet down it's business dealings with East Timor. In fact I'm pretty sure Pepsi lost it's contract at Harvard to Coke after students protested.

I don’t think coca cola killed people in India but they did cause problems.
Coke built a bottling plant in a drought area and sunk deep wells lowering the water table and exacerbating the drought conditions for the local people. Causing major problems with regard to crops and employment related to farming. Many of the shallow wells that used to supply a village are now dry or tainted.

Why Coke chose to build a plant in a drought zone only G-D knows.

I don’t know about Coke getting involved in Myanmar (Burma). I can’t imagine that there is much money there.

Fanta was invented by the Nazis after they could no longer get Coca cola syrup in 1941.
Bottling plants were built by Coca Cola GmbH in all the occupied areas of Europe. Coca Coke Gmbh used slave labor at some of its facilities. My understanding is that Coke in Atlanta had to pay reparations to forced laborers after the war.

When the war ended the bottling plants were already set up and ready to produce coca cola.

It's a real shame that the symbol has come to mean what it does. It's origins can be traced back nearly 3000 years (it is considered the world's oldest symbol), and it has been adopted by many cultures to represent various things life, sun, good luck, etc. - all of them good until it's most popular adoption, by a madman and serial murderer and his political party.

I'm sure the connection is purely unintentional, but it doesn't really make the image any less disturbing.

Horrible things always happen when profits are placed above all else. Thats the sacriest part of big biz today, they have little connection to their consumer.
