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 campaig= n. 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 18= th but have not notified us. If your planned event is not on this list, PLEAS= E send us a report.) There are many other places where activists are interested in putting together an event but had not reported definite plan= s as of this writing.

Three items:

* 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 you t= o consider linking your Nike campaign work to the wider struggle to eradicat= e 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.
