Notes from Penn State Special Collections <http://www.flickr.com/photos/pennstatespecial/6948038340/>: "This poster, sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee (Quakers), reflects the Coca-Cola boycott campaigns arising out of the United States in the 1980’s. A highly influential company in South Africa, Coca-Cola was believed to have conducted business, like numerous other corporations, in a way that economically reinforced Apartheid systems; the objective of the boycott was to urge Coca-Cola to divest its business from South Africa and in turn weaken Apartheid social constraints."
