New tactics that bring the protest into the store are being adopted.
It is catching on and it has a name:
Shop and Awe
One loads up their cart full, has all items checked and bagged then refuses to pay and walks out. Some people display signs at the check out stand. Others have a statement they read or make to the scabs and customers in support of the strike.
The union does not want their members to do this, so its up to us activists to make it happen. Get as many of your follow activists together as you can and pick a store. Ask the strike captain on the picket line if they approve of the action, most all yes. This action is legal. The manager may call the cops and they may show up but so far no arrests have been made because no law has been broken.
The campaign is gaining momentum and coming to a store near you.
