A few boycott Wal-Mart pictures from the Overpass Light Brigade

Last edited Fri Nov 23, 2012, 04:28 AM - Edit history (5)

More pictures, with descriptions and comments at: http://www.facebook.com/OverpassLightBrigade

On EDIT: The first 2 photos say "Respect The Workers" -- the first photo is cut off at the beginning and the end, and the second one is taken at such a sharp angle that the 2nd "E" partially hides the "P" in RESPECT.

======================================
This one doesn't have anything to do with Wal-mart, but imagine if you are a rightie driving down the interstate happily listening to Rushie-poo and you encounter this:



Or see this bumper sticker on the car ahead of you:


it's from here ->

4. Those people really know how to spell!

5. What word(s) are misspelled?

The first photo obviously cut off the beginning and the end (not a good choice on my part, there were plenty better ones to choose from).

The 2nd photo is taken at a sharp angle and at first looks like RESFECT but the 2nd "E" is partially hiding the "P" making it look like an "F".

6. He's complimenting their spelling

And pointing out their correct spelling makes it easy to tell where they stand on the political divide

7. I hope they post how many workers went through with the "strike"

I'd be interested in knowing.

10. Because the National Labor Relations Board does not officially recognize it as a strike

It really is in essence employees walking off the job. That being said I still support what they are doing.

12. That is going to be hard to get

As is, for a company that has the me worried attitude to the media, I got eight pages of procedures that somehow was obtained...by the organizers.
