'Calls grew Friday for a consumer boycott of Coca-Cola after the mammoth corporation largely stood by as its home state, Georgia, passed one of the biggest crackdowns on voting rights in recent history....
'Coca-Cola has come under particular pressure over the voting rights crackdown. Critics held a 'die in' earlier this month to protest the company’s lack of action at its Atlanta tourist attraction.
'[The company] issued a statement in early March saying that it supported a “balanced approach to the elections bills that have been introduced in the Georgia Legislature” and that they should aim to be 'inclusive.'”
'As boycott calls mounted, [Coca Cola] issued a new statement Friday saying it supports reforms that 'maximize voter participation.'”
