UNC STUDENTS KICK UP THEIR HEELS ON NIKE TRIP PROPOSAL
Published November 25, 1997
UNC-CH student activists say "they'd like to take Nike up on its offer" to inspect factories in Southeast Asia, but "only if they can make the trip on their own terms," according to Jane Stancill of the Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER. On Monday, the Nike Awareness Campaign student group issued 10 conditions "to ensure an objective study" of the working conditions at Nike contracted factories, including "free rein to visit whatever factories they choose." The group also wants to hire its own interpreters, take their own experts, and be allowed to take photographs of the working conditions to bring back with them (NEWS & OBSERVER, 11/25).
