As the world’s largest private sector employer, Wal-Mart’s influence over every aspect of our country’s economic, political and social life is enormous. Wal-Mart represents a threat to many immigrant neighborhoods and has an aggressive expansion plan for Los Angeles starting in Chinatown. Wal-Mart destroys small businesses, creates poverty-level jobs and drives down wages for the rest of us. We are rising up together to say: “No Wal-Martization of L.A.!”
March with the Korean Resource Center, along with thousands of Chinatown residents, youth, labor, community, civil rights and small business owners for the largest protest against Wal-Mart ever to be held in the U.S.!
Come together to demand good jobs, support small businesses, and strengthen Chinatown & Los Angeles!
Meeting Place: Korean Resource Center
Date: Saturday, June 30, 2012
Time: Meet at KRC at 9:15am. Depart at 9:30am to Los Angeles State Historic Park (The Cornfield) 1245 N. Spring St., LA 90012
By uniting all together, we can stop Wal-Mart from expanding across Los Angeles, starting in Chinatown, with its low wage jobs and cycle of poverty it creates, feeds and profits off of.
