don't protest the local stores 14.Sep.2004 15:47

while the corporate player Fred Meyer might be firing union organizers in Cincinati, that does not mean the same evils are happening here at our local Wild Oats affiliates. While Wild Oats may not be as local as some, the products taht are sold, the people that work there and the community are local and protesting the locals who have nothing to do with the Cincinati crime will not help, it will only hurt our neighbors and relatives taht work for Wild Oats locally. show your support for the ideal of local food and community and shop the stores, but write to the corporation and tell them--protest by using your words and actions in a manifestation that doesn't hurt those that we share our community with.
