Methodists Join Protest Over Olympic Uniforms

February 09, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Women in the United Methodist Church are protesting the uniforms worn by Olympic torchbearers because of the uniform maker's alleged ties to inhumane working conditions in Myanmar.

The Women's Division of the country's second-largest Protestant church joined other groups in letters to the International Olympic Committee and to the uniform maker, Marker Outerware, protesting the uniforms.

The coalition asked the IOC to clarify its contract with the firm and to denounce further production in Myanmar. It asked the firm to end all production there.
