Global Day of Action Against Nike On July 29--And A Solidarity Action In Portland, Oregon
Don’t buy #NikeLies! Nike will have you believe they promote #equality and empower women, but continue to exploit the labor of working women inside their factories. We are standing up to the world’s largest sportswear brand to demand justice for workers fighting for job security, a living wage and respect for freedom of association. Across Vietnam, Mexico, Guatemala and most recently Honduras - Nike is pulling production from union factories to non-union factories in order to avoid responsibility for exploitative practices.
Join United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) to call for worker justice at Nike stores in 25 cities in the U.S. and around the world. In solidarity with workers fighting back against Nike’s anti-worker practices, we call on everyone to join us at The Nike Factory Store in Portland on July 29th at 1:30.
Please join us on Saturday, July 29th, 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM, to hold Nike accountable!
The Nike Factory Store is located in NE Portland on MLK Jr. Boulevard between Knott St and Russel St.
