Today a some of us, teamed up with a Leeds Met Green to protest against Adidas who have been refusing to pay $1.5 million to Indonesian workers in redundancy fees. The factory workers were paid back by the other companies using it (including Nike), but Adidas have refused. Only offering food vouchers worth 8% of what they are owed and only being able to use them at supermarkets (unable to spend them on healthcare and education). At the same time Adidas can spend $100 million sponsoring the olympics. We cannot let them get away with this…
People and Planet had put on a national day to protest outside Footlocker to pressure them to pressure Adidas. There was a great turn out around the country so hopefully together we made an impact.
People were happy to take our flyers and talk to us. Footlocker had even hired security just for us… so we must be annoying them slightly… hopefully enough!
Welcome to our website (and yours if you want to [[Edit this site|edit it]]). We want it to become a resource for activists. Its primary goals are
Here are some of the core documents on this site.
We have two 'Books' which are coherent nuggets of information.
[[Alternative Leeds university library]] is a libray of books at Leeds library that are good reads for Green Action members.
[[Alternative Careers Guide]] covers a general overview of what's wrong with the corporate world and then focus on the sectors of Finance, Armaments, Pharmaceutical, Food & Distribution, and Petrochemical. There is also a section on ethical and unconventional careers and work.
Find information about what [[About Green Action|Green Action]] is. We are trying to find out [[Who is Green Action?]] ourselves which means looking at why we are Green Action members and what is the common underlying philosophy.
One thing we know is that we run a [[About Green Action food co-op|Food Co-op]]. To keep it all working smoothly we have certian [[Roles]].
For Green Action photos the best place to upload them is flickr, the password for flickr is: "b_nnan*ch_ps!" where the "_" need to be replaced with the correct letter (like "s_nd*c_stle!" becomes "sand*castle!").
