Join the Richmond IWW (Industrial Workers of the World) for a protest on Thanksgiving evening!

Thursday, November 22, 2012
8:00pm until 1:00am
Walmart 7901 Brook Rd, Richmond, VA<

RSVP here: [ http://www.corporateactionnetwork.org/events/black-friday-at-walmart-supercenter-2295 ]

We will be leafletting outside the Walmart on Brook and Parham Rd. letting consumers and workers know that there are walkouts and active organizing campaigns happening all over the Unites States.

Why 8:00pm on Thanksgiving Day? Because, Walmart has announced that Black Friday sales will begin two hours earlier than years before, cutting deeper into an already short or non existent holiday for workers. A t

ime traditionally held for family and friends, stolen by capitalist and their pursuit of profits over human and social needs.

Stand with Walmart workers in their fight for their rights. For decades, Walmart Stores, Inc have dragged down wages, forcing their workers to work irregular schedules, and intimidated and took retribution on any workers who fought back. It’s time for the retribution to end, so come to this local Walmart to show your solidarity and tell Walmart that they need to pay their fair share.
