Mobilizing against new Wal-Mart

With another new Wal-Mart encroaching I say we sound the battle cry
A call to action!
As most of us Portlanders already know, a new Wal-Mart (Portland's 32nd by the way) is set for construction at Hayden Meadows. I know many of us are opposed to yet another store coming into our community. This is a call to action! I say we mobilize against this corporate giant and put our collective foot down. No new Wal-Marts! Anyone who is interested - especially those with experience in community-based corporate resistance WE NEED YOUR HELP! I say we start today. Anyone that would like to start organizing please contact me at the e-mail address above. Let's show Wal-Mart we've had enough!
