‘Tis the Season… to Battle Coke’s Mexican Christmas Spirit

A Diabetes tree has risen in the middle of Mexico City

A Diabetes tree has risen in the middle of Mexico City

Here we go again.

Barely one year after Coca-Cola unleashed the fury of this blogger — and many, many more people — with a ridiculous holiday commercial set in Oaxaca, the beverage giant is on the hot seat again.

The reason? Mexico City officials have allowed the company to put up a gigantic Coca-Cola-themed Christmas tree right in the middle of the city’s main square.

The offending, plasticky huge thing is now being labelled by activists as the Diabetes Tree, which is just a perfect way to “celebrate” the deathly toll the disease has taken on my people.

So, as the suits over at Coca-Cola would say: Feliz Navidad, suckers!

  1. Huge Corporations, like Coca Cola,have no heart, no soul and no conscience. The only instinct they have is to survive at any cost. And the more they deal directly with individuals the worse these traits become. Somewhere, in the bureaucracy that permits this activity, you can be sure lots of pockets were lined.

    The protests should be to the Mexico City’s authorities because they allowed that.
