Compare and Contrast

From The Chronicle: Daily news: 12/09/2005:

New York University announced on Thursday that it would no longer sell any Coca-Cola products in its campus facilities because of alleged human-rights violations and suppression of unions at the soft-drink maker's bottling affiliates in Colombia.

From The United Federation of Teachers:

A crowd of 300 labor supporters braved sub-freezing temperatures and biting wind Dec. 7 to show support for striking NYU graduate assistants, hotel and day-care workers and others trying to unionize. Speaker after speaker pledged their solidarity, including UFT Vice President Michael Mulgrew and NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi.
