UNC STUDENTS KICK UP THEIR HEELS ON NIKE TRIP PROPOSAL
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).
