Emergency Levi Strauss anti-sweatshop protest.

A group of demonstrators gathered in front of the world headquarters of San Francisco based Levi Strauss to take part in a "bullhorn action" demanding that the company restore the jobs of workers recently fired by one of it's contractors, the haiti based Grupo M, for taking part in a union drive.

The demonstrators, who included representatives from the San Francisco Labor Council, United Students Against Sweatshops, and the California Coalition for Fair Trade and Human Rights, pointed out that Levi's inaction is in direct conflict with it's own Code of Conduct which states that it's suppliers can not interfere with the right of workers to freely associate.
