Occupy Eugene activists are staging a protest Friday 10:30 – 11:30 AM at the Eugene West 11th Walmart to bring attention to 1% media blitz targeting the 99% to buy buy buy on Black Friday. Unfettered consumerism leads to debt and time away from the family while at the same time large corporations reap record profits. Many of these big box stores, including Walmart, have abysmal employee wages and benefits.
Please join Occupy Eugene in buying nothing and challenging the Corporate Status Quo.
