Protest Sweatshop Labor Saturday December 23rd!
17 Dec 2000
The December 16th anti-sweatshop protest was so successful that we're doing it again! Join us!
A sizable and spirited crowd gathered at Newbury and Exeter Street on Saturday to protest the use of sweatshop labor by Nike and the GAP and to educate consumers about this unjust practice. Join us for a follow-up on December 23rd at 1pm, again at Newbury & Exeter in front of the GAP and Niketown. On this last Saturday before Christmas, encourage shoppers to take a stand and join the boycott of these two corporations!

And don't forget that Donald Fisher, CEO of the GAP, was a member of one of the advisory panels that helped US negotiators forge the WTO treaty during the Uruguay Round of trade talks from 1987-1994. Is it little wonder that these "free-trade" treaties have such lax standards for environmental protection and labor rights?
