Title: Whirl-Mart Ritual Resistance
START DATE: Friday November 23
TIME: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Location Details:
Oakland Walmart
Event Type: Protest
Whirl-Mart is a culture jamming event aimed at retail superstores that combines art, action and walking meditation.

This action is intended to show solidarity with striking Walmart workers.

The event consists of a group of people who congregate at a Wal-Mart and slowly push empty shopping carts silently through store aisles. Participants will not purchase anything and seek to form a lengthy chain of non-shoppers, continually weaving and "whirling" through the store.

Please wear a plain white shirt with no logos. We will meet in front of the Starbucks at 10 AM.
