Group Aims to "Think Globally, Act Locally," on Sweatshops

The popular shirts with the "Santa Cruz" logo are imported by a local company, NHS Inc., from factories in Asia and Mexico. On April 9, a group of young people associated with the documentary film, Planet USA, returned hooded sweatshirts made in Burma to Pacific Wave and requested the store stop carrying shirts made in a brutal dictatorship, The group wants to meet with the president of NHS Inc. to discuss their current factory conditions but he is refusing.

Shoppers in Santa Cruz may recall an unusual sight downtown in front of The Gap at Christmas time. While a group of carolers sang satirical anti-corporate Christmas carols, large video images were projected high on the wall of the store, depicting sweatshop workers in Thailand and Cambodia. The ones sewing behind bars were refugees from Burma (now called Myanmar), making about 12 cents per hour. They have fled from even worse conditions in Burma, a country where 50 million people are suffering under a brutal military dictatorship.

Here in Santa Cruz, we have a company, NHS Inc., which has imported clothing from Burma, among other places, and distributes all over the U.S. The popular items among surfers and skaters here are the T-shirts and sweatshirts emblazoned with the familiar red and yellow “Santa Cruz� logo. You can walk into any of a number of hip shops in town and read these labels – “Made in Myanmar/Burma.�

Next Staged "Terror Attack" on the way?

9-11 was an inside job. (see: www.letsroll911.org )

They could do it again before the election. They are now doing "market research" to see if the "product" of another massive terrorist attack on U.S. soil will turn voters to Bush.


If not, it could always be used to suspend the whole illusion, and just get on with the work of building empire and dictatorship.
