The struggle by the Indigenous people against the exploitation and pollution of water of Coca-Cola Company at Plachimada completes three years on 22 April 2005. The Anti Coca-Cola Struggle Committee and Plachimada Solidarity Committee have already firmly declared that the Cola Company, which has obtained permission to extract 500,000 litres from the High Court, would not be permitted to operate in Plachimada. On 22 April 2005 an Anti-Cola People's Confluence is being organised at Plachimada to commence the next phase of intense agitation with the support of all people.

Adivasi Gothra Mahasabha, DYFI, Solidarity Youth Movement, Yuva Janatha Dal, Yuvajana Vedi, Gandhi Yuva Mandalam, PUCL, NAPM, Lohia Vichar Vedi, Kerala Swathanthra Matsya Thozhilali federation, Kerala Sasthra Sahitya Parishath, Adivasi Samrakshana Sangham, Desiya Karshaka Sangham, Poraattam, Ekta Parishad, Students Christian Movement, Small Traders Association, Samajvadi Jana Parishad, Pattikajathi-Pattikavarga Munnani (SC-ST Front), Palakkad Munnottu and many others have announced their participation in this peoples togetherness. Many organisations that have so far not been directly part of the Anti Cola Struggle are participating in this people's confluence. The Struggle Committee and Solidarity Committee are also contacting maximum possible organisations in this regard. We appeal to those organisations and individuals whom we have not been able to contact to come to Plachimada at 8 am on 22 April 2005 to participate in this Peoples' Confluence.

We cordially invite and request all organisations and mass movements to join their banners with that of the Struggle Committee and Solidarity Committee expressing solidarity in this Anti Cola People's Confluence.
