sweatshop athletes

Via CraigBlog (of Craigslist fame):

The theme of the 2004 summer Olympic Games is “celebrate humanity,” yet the workers who make the gear and clothing for the upcoming Olympics suffer terribly inhumane working conditions and have few rights. Workers in official Olympic manufacturer Fila’s factories endure forced overtime, get fined for mistakes they make, and are intimidated out of joining trade unions. This is no way to celebrate humanity!

You can read Oxfam’s view and see how companies took the news, and then sign the petition if you so feel like it.
