Gee Boots Student Protestors

Ohio State University President Gordon Gee had a dozen students ejected

from the Board of Trustees meeting this morning as they protested a proposed contract with an apparel company they say uses sweat-shop labor. Silver Star Merchandising, the Dallas Cowboys' merchandising arm, makes college-logo apparel in El Salvador and Indonesia. The proposed multimillion-dollar ten year deal was negotiated last May in secret, according to the students. OSU officials have previously denied the allegations.
