<TD class=px15 width=400><B>For years, Nike was the undisputed champion of
logo culture, its swoosh an instant symbol of global cool. Today, Phil
Knight's Nike is a fading empire, badly hurt by years of "brand damage" as
activists and culture jammers fought back against mindfuck marketing and
dirty sweatshop labor.<BR><BR>Now a final challenge. We take on Phil at
his own game - and win. We turn the shoes we wear into a counterbranding
game. The swoosh versus the anti-swoosh. Which side are you
on?<BR><BR>Adbusters has been doing R&amp;D for more than a year, and
guess what? Making a shoe - a good shoe - isn't exactly rocket science.
With a network of supporters, we're getting ready to launch the
<I>blackSpot</I> sneaker, the world's first grassroots anti-brand. You can
help launch the <I>blackSpot</I> revolution.<BR><BR>THE BIG
QUESTION:<BR>Is it possible to take Phil Knight's billion-dollar marketing
momentum and, in a quick judo-like move, slap him onto the mat with the
power of his own PR thrust?<BR><BR><A

a child of slaves, the undocumented slaves. Some of those guys said
jump off you ^%&# this and that. Mahmud Kurchu came close to stairs he
probably would have pushed me out of broken glass anyway. Then the
second guy who had punched me really really hard (so hard that blood
started coming out of my mouth) was actually guarding one level down, he
probably saw all that through glass too, he started running towards me
from stairs below, he took out his gun, he probably would have killed me
too, considering the way he punched me. I did not want to jump, I was
feeling pain in my back. By the way after killing enough slaves and mice
(as these Jews think we really are) they knew that now I can?t just jump
again through stair. Because apparently the guy Mahmud Kurchu and his
jewish terrorist killed weeks before, who flew out of window under the
influence of jewish torture and drugs, all this back bones were broken
in pieces, they knew this from his post mortem, after killing that
active Muslim kid they placed him in car and made his death look like
just another car accident. The fact is if anyone is ever missing,
kidnapped or suffering from loss of memory start by search all the
jewish torture cells. You all are equally rapists and
