Olympics organizers to probe Adidas ‘exploitation’ claims | The Raw Story

London Olympics organisers said on Saturday that they would investigate claims that workers in a Cambodian Adidas factory were being paid just $61 a month to produce official merchandise for the Games.

The investigation came after Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper reported that workers at the sportswear brand’s factory outside Phnom Penh were making “fanwear” six days a week for a basic salary of $61 (50 euros) per month.

Machinists at the Shen Zou factory told the broadsheet that they received an additional $5 allowance for healthcare and could increase their wages to $120 a month by increasing their hours from eight to 10 per day.

Dancing With Palestinians

I grew up in Israel and served as an IDF officer. It took me years to realize that we had been brought up on lies, myths and propaganda and that Palestinians are no different from native Americans, blacks in S. Africa and other indigenous populations who were abused and dispossessed by European colonialism. Demolishing the Zionist myths and propaganda is the first step towards de-constructing the exclusionary colonial state and achieving historic justice and lasting peace.
