Purpose

BOYCOTT BLACK FRIDAY WE ARE PROPOSING WALMART PROTESTS AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO JOIN US.

There are protests planned in both Portland and in Vancouver.

Walmart Portland 4200 SE 82nd Ave, Portland, Oregon 97266
Friday, November 25th, we are going to enter WalMart. 
No chants, no signs.
Just enter like you are there to shop.
Then at 12:30p, listen up because there will be a mic-check. 
If we can have people through out the store so our message is heard it would be more effective.
In solidarity ♥
We will be protesting on sidewalk at Walmart in Vancouver on Hwy 99 at 9am.  
Contact info is: occupywalmartvanc@gmail.com. Thank you
Walmart is one of the main contributors in the incredibly negative impact on the American economy and we should all start buying LOCAL!

Every year, the day after Thanksgiving turns into one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year. With most of that money being spent in big corporate stores with poor benefits and ethics for their employees. This year, let's change that.

WalMart is one of the worse culprits of poor employee standards and ethics.

But if you would rather not be out on Black Friday, maybe you could consider some of these activities... Dreading the holiday season? The frantic rush and stress? The to-do lists and sales hype? The spiritless hours trapped in malls?

This year, why not gather together your loved ones and decide to do things differently?

With the simplest of plans you can create a new rhythm, purpose and meaning for the holidays.

Why not take the spirit of Buy Nothing Day and morph it into Buy Nothing Christmas?

With catastrophic climate change looming, we the rich one billion people on the planet have to consume less! And if that's too extreme for grandma and the kids, try for a Buy Less Christmas. And maybe a buy local, buy fairer, buy indie Christmas. Whatever you decide, 'tis the season to reclaim our year-end celebrations and make them our own again.

If you want to go one step further off the consumer treadmill, consider one of these actions from previous holiday seasons
  • Give your friends and family a "gift exemption" card
  • Ask shoppers "What Would Jesus Buy?"
  • Get some friends together (or go solo), dress as santa and meditate in the middle of a busy shopping mall
  • Check out buynothingchristmas.org to check out more actions (or inactions) you can take this holiday season
