It sounds like it's going to be a pretty big event! Is anyone from this board able to attend in Washington D.C.??

If so can you let us know how it went? Hopefully there will be media coverage & if YOUR LOCAL news doesn't carry it on the first evening news I hope you will call the station and ask them to cover it so those who are not in the loop so to speak will at least see the crowds and the protest and that might make them wonder what all the fuss is about and then they might get educated about it.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
