Women Wanted for Wally World Wrongs

Black Friday Walmart Protest Seeks to Expose Real Wally World


by M.D. Dupuy

It didn’t seem much like Black Friday at Wal Mart on Tchoupitoulas this afternoon. Customers had their choice of parking spaces, lines were one and two deep, and no one was scrambling for the last discounted TV or kitchen appliance. “Black Friday,” actually began Thanksgiving night at 8pm, and not everyone was happy about the extended bargains. Beginning at 11am, approximately 40 people stood in solidarity with Walmart employees, demanding fairer practices and scheduling.
