by Marvin Vargas Saturday, Oct. 08, 2005 at 8:13 PM

Students want National Champions to go Sweat-Free

Students from the University of Southern California are asking administrators to respect the rights and dignity of workers who make USC apparel by adopting a plan to uncover and stop human rights abuses at the factories that make Trojan apparel. They are demanding the University join the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC), an independent factory monitor, and release the terms of a secret contract with Nike.

WHAT: A rally and presentation of the Sweat-free USC Initiative to University President Steven Sample. The Initiative is the students response to six years of inaction and foot dragging by the President.

WHEN: 9:30am-10:00am, Monday, October 10th, 2005

WHERE: In front of Bovard Auditorium in the center of USCs University Park Campus.

WHO: USC Students will present their demands to President Sample

WHY: USC has failed to take serious action against sweatshops despite widespread abuses in the garment industry and documented reports of physical violence against workers.

VISUALS: Banner, signs and a giant check made out to USC for one hour of sweatshop work.
