GAP victories but “We did not
slay the big dragon”

Because many of us cannot
view video yet, SunMt will
run 2+ pages of every
Chronicle — first one with
stills; the rest with video.
We were falsely arrested when
we protested GAP sweatshops
in front of the Fresno Fashion
Fair mall. Our free speech
rights were violated. After
18 months all charges against
us were thrown out of court.
We then sued the City of Fresno
and the mall. See we collected
thousands of $$$ in attorney
fees and support for local
social action groups. But see
that we still do not have free
at the mall. GAP has agreed to
clean up its Saipan sweatshops.
Even if that works out, GAP
and many other big corportions
have sweatshops all over the
world. See “We did not slay
the big dragon.”
