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.
