Just boycott it

nike slavery (1)The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”

  1. Could you give some specific details of cases of Nike’s exploitation of labour? Is there documentned research of it (where)?
    Am thinking of asking a few high profile sports-people I know to write to them (e.g. my brother who is an Australian olympic archery coach as well as a Baptist).
    If we only boycott them, it won’t register with them that we are protesting. But if we actually write to them they will be forced/coerced to respond due to marketing PR pressures.
