Protest annual Wal-Mart shareholder's meeting in Arkansas

When: June 2-3, 2005

Where: Fayetteville, Arkansas, University of Arkansas,
Bud Walton Arena (yes, the brother of Sam Walton has an arena named after him on a state school's campus)

Why: Take the heat to Wal-Mart's home territory:
Northwest Arkansas. Meet other progressives, WM activists, and labor folks. Last year, people came
from New York, California, and Canada to greet Wal-Mart's shareholders.

Who: Anyone who is concerned about the Walmartization of America or the Wal-Mart effect of lost jobs, low wages, elimination of small businesses, violations of labor rights, union-busting, sex discrimination, wage discrimination, etc.

The Against the Wal Coalition is organizing a march through the town square in Fayetteville, Arkansas and will have space for tents and housing for people coming to WM's home territory to turn up the heat on the Bentonville Behemoth. The march begins with a gathering at Walton Art Center parking lot at 5:00pm on Thursday, June 2. We would like to start the march up Dickson St by 5:30 pm- in order to arrive at the town square for a 6:00 pm press conference.

There will be a social gathering that night. Friday, June 3: Wake up bright and early at 5am to greet the Bentonville Behemoth's shareholders at Bud Walton Arena at 6am!

Carpooling will save time, energy, and money and is recommended.
