As many of you know, following a $150 million dollar donation from the Nike Foundation, CloudFlare removed 8chan from their servers. Bad idea. Anons will counter. #WWG1WGA
Nike is the world's leading sports and fitness company, producing a wide range of sports related apparel and equipment. Headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, Nike operates on six continents with more than 500 factories worldwide and offices located in 45 countries outside the USA
Over the years, Nike has received sharp criticism for its poor labor practices in third world countries, along with other environmental and human rights exploitations. These abuses have made Nike a symbol of sweatshop labor around the world. Groups such as NikeWatch,
Global Exchange, and Corp Watch are part of a global campaign to persuade Nike and other sports brands to respect workers’ rights.
The poor labor conditions in some overseas production plants forced several unsuccessful boycotts against Nike, led by many universities, anti-globalization and anti-sweatshop groups such as the United Students Against Sweatshops.
Nike is headquartered in the city of Beaverton, Oregon but is technically within unincorporated Washington County, creating conflict between Nike and local government. Remaining outside the city limits of Beaverton, shelters Nike from a fortune in annual city taxes.
From Nike’s perspective, it is the only Fortune 500 company headquartered in Oregon, and believes it should not be annexed by Beaverton without its consent because of its large payroll.
Nike prefers to work with the county government since annexation would cost the company $700,000 annually in city taxes for services it already receives from the county. Keep in mind, this company makes about $20 billion a year!
However, Beaverton believes Nike’s position is counter to having its business and zoning laws apply equally to all businesses. The situation worsened when Beaverton attempted to forcibly annex the property where Nike was located.
This led to a lawsuit by Nike, and lobbying by the company resulted in Oregon Senate Bill 887 in 2005, which specifically barred Beaverton from forcibly annexing the land Nike occupies for 35 years. Of course, Oregon is controlled by Demonrats.
AND, like every slimeball in Epstein's black book, [THEY] have a Foundation. A majority of Nike’s corporate diplomacy and corporate philanthropy is conducted through the Nike Foundation, which is a non-profit organization based in Beaverton, Oregon. .
Here comes the first Boom! The Foundation is dedicated to giving the world’s neediest girls the opportunities to lead full, active lives and contributes to fighting poverty through investments in [adolescent girls.] Hello!!!!!! #DarkToLight
A portion of Nike’s annual giving target of three percent of the preceding year’s pre-tax income is allocated to the Foundation to support its mission.
NikeGO PE is a physical education program that provides elementary schools the ability to build effective physical education programs.
