WalMart Workers Fed Up! Richmond-San Leandro Actions In BA On 2012 Black Friday
As part of the national WalMart Black Friday on November 23,
demonstrations and protests were held in San Leandro and
Richmond in the Bay Area. WalMart workers spoke about the
intimidation and terrorism on the job to silence them from
speaking out and organizing. Some workers walked off the
job in solidarity with the national day of action and were
promptly fired. Making Change at Walmart is the organizing
group which called this day of action and it is supported by
the United Food And Commercial Workers Union UFCW.
In San Leandro, WalMart on November 22, 2012 also
threatened the use of the police to remove the protesters
including their own workers.
