Justice at Walmart

I Pledge to Not Shop on Thanksgiving
=v= Walmart workers are striking on Friday, and I'm going to take a wild guess that Friday will start four hours early, on a day generally known as Thursday, or Thanksgiving, because that's when Walmart plans to open their doors for crazed mobs of shoppers.

Reason for the Season is a Facebook page for folks refusing to shop on Thanksgiving, which is laudable.  There are of course many pages, including this one, devoted to not shopping on Black Friday Buy Nothing Day (or not shopping at all).  This year, though, it seems especially important to support the Walmart workers, who are on the front lines of both the consumer frenzy and the race to the bottom.

Follow this link: Justice at Walmart to find information and events in support of Walmart strikers.  Events for justice are much better than wasting money buying stuff.  Enjoy!
