Walmart Black Friday Strike Being Organanized Online

>>>
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving regarded as one of the biggest shopping days of the year, may be dramatically different this year.

Organizers are planning a nationwide strike against Walmart, the largest retailer in the world, and are banking on a new strategy: online organizing.

Labor organizers are working with social action nonprofit Engage Network as well as corporate watchdog nonprofit Corporate Action Network to pull off what they are calling a "viral" -- meaning national and spreading online -- strike.

3. I will go to the local Mal-Wart

and tell employees about this. Better yet, I will print out notices to hand out, if anyone can give me the url of those notices.

I would love to watch as that evil behemoth, which destroyed so many mom & pop businesses, small bizzes, entreprenuers, and put so many on welfare, or no safety net, go down to HELL where they belong.

Repug BS has been defeated. This is one of the companies that still clings to that shit. Fuck them.

5. So.....

will this involve more than just a chicken shit dozen or so stores? In order for this to
work...Black Friday has to be disrupted at thousands of stores. Like one person
said above, i will print out something for the employees at our Local Wal-Marts.
one was closed for a week due to power outage from Sandy...and it was never closed
before. It would be a righteous holy hell of a hoot for it to half to shut down again just
a couple weeks later. I would also love the uncomprehending looks on those bovine faces of the usual
deranged Black Friday zombies.
