N. Charleston, SC- Protesters will gather on Black Friday Nov. 23. near the Tanger Outlet Mall Walmart from 10 am—12 noon as part of an international day of strikes and protests against the retailer.  The demonstration will be held at the corner of Center Point Drive and Tanger Outlet Blvd, Across from the Center Point WalMart in North Charleston, SC.

Those interested are invited to join South Carolinians and an international movement to compel Walmart to transform its corporate culture to one which promotes human happiness and dignity including fair pay and benefits for its employees, commitment to US and locally manufactured goods, and increased opportunities for secure, full time
employment for its workers.

On Black Friday activists associated with http://makingchangeatwalmart.org/ and other organizations will protest and strike against Walmart worldwide.

The North Charleston protest will be a safe and legal demonstration, conducted with notice to law enforcement.  Arrests are not anticipated.

The protest location is near a stop served by the CARTA #11 & #104 bus lines.  Please use transit if you can.  Demonstrators should not park in the Walmart Parking lot.

There is a Facebook event signup with further information http://tinyurl.com/... or one may call Tel 843 870-5299.

Some participants will gather at the IHOP nearby at 9 am for Breakfast.

Tue Nov 20, 2012 at 7:13 AM PT: Met with N. Charleston police Monday about Friday protest at Tanger Walmart & Sam's Club in N. Charleston.  Also visited the Walmart and gave the manager some basic information on the action.  Everyone was very professional and polite.  I believe we're prepared for a safe and effective act of public witness from 10 am to 12 noon.  Not everyone want's to sign up and we expect some people to participate "off the book" to maintain their privacy.  Everyone in the Tanger area seems to know about the protest, which is remarkable.  We did a short interview on WTMA as well yesterday, which probably got the local right wing riled up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
