buy nothing day: support striking walmart workers near you
One more paper plus one fundraiser for the Children's Book Bank will equal one more term behind me.
Until then, I leave you with this excellent image of cultural imperialism, from The New Internationalist: another kind of D-Day.
Today, occupiers all over the US will be honouring Buy Nothing Day by supporting the courageous workers of OUR Walmart, who are demanding a living wage, full-time work for those who want it, and the ability to exercise their right to organize free of harassment and intimidation.
You can stop by an OUR Walmart event to support the striking workers: a list of actions is here. And if you are shopping today, please keep those low, low prices - and those even lower labour standards - off your list.
