THE LIST KEEPS GROWING!!! -- 27 U.S. states, 12 countries!!!
Preparations for international Nike mobilization head into final week
Each day, more communities and campuses are letting us know about their
plans for participation in the October 18 international mobilization in
support of the rights of Nike's overseas workers. This event is being
organized with minimal resources. People all around the world who care
passionately about ending sweatshop abuses have given life to this campaign.
We are thrilled to be able to report the following list of places whose
plans we know about. (Our past experience tells us that there must be many
other places where human rights advocates have organized events for the 18th
but have not notified us. If your planned event is not on this list, PLEASE
send us a report.) There are many other places where activists are
interested in putting together an event but had not reported definite plans
as of this writing.
* Because of the tremendous response to this call to action, we are
planning on doing another international Nike mobilization in 6 months, in
April of 1998.
* If your organization is not already involved in other sweatshop
campaigns besides the Nike struggle, Campaign for Labor Rights urges
consider linking your Nike campaign work to the wider struggle to eradicate
sweatshop abuses and exploitative child labor.
* Would your organization like to be listed in our newsletter and our
labor alerts as a local contact for anti-sweatshop activity? If so, please
let us know.

temporary problem with your email server. Although our alert system is
becoming automated, you can still communicate with a real person at Campaign
