'No Sweat' events

No Sweat week of action

Date: 
12 February, 2007 - 09:00 - 18 February, 2007 - 19:00
Location: 

Various

Description: 

February 12th sees the beginning of a Week of Action for No Sweat and Students Against Sweatshops. At university campuses up and down the country our students will be inviting others to take a stand against sweatshops and the worldwide exploitation of workers.

No Sweat has invited speakers from all across the globe and from a wide-ranging spectrum of international workers struggles. We are hoping to see students engaging in direct action against multinational corporations such as Apple for their use of sweatshops in China in the production of their best-selling product, the iPod, JJB after their recent dispute with GMB and the disgraceful dismissal of union activist Chris Riley, and Tesco. The main themes are:

• International solidarity with sweatshop workers and their unions;

• Ethical merchandising on campus;

• Living wage campaigning on campus to end the scandal of low pay among cleaners, security, catering and other campus workers. We are currently organising a speaker tour, which will hopefully include an activist from the Oaxaca struggle in Mexico, along with several films we are offering for screenings.

If you would like more information about the Week Of Action or Students Against Sweatshops or you would like to be involved, contact Heather Shaw on 07969597251 or centre_stage_red@yahoo.co.uk.
