Trinity College will be a Coca-Cola and Procter & Gamble-free zone during the Winter Games, in protest against the brands’ decisions to sponsor the event.

Trinity College Dublin Students’ Union (TCDSU) will also hold a series of protests against the leading multinational corporations that have taken the decision to sponsor the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

They will hold their first protest on Wednesday 5 February, outside the Russian Embassy, before the opening ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics.

They intend on holding a second protest, but the location has not yet been decided upon.

The decision to ban the sale of these products was made at Students’ Union Council in response to Russia’s ongoing violations of Human Rights Law and persecution of LGBTQ people.
