call to : WHIRL-MART ANTISHOPPING !ART/ACTION?....JUNE 3! (tags)
On April 1, 2001, breathingplanet.net successfully activated its first action-performance, Whirl-Mart. It was a silent march winding through the aisles of Wal-Mart in Troy, NY, that was symbolic of the group's opposition to violent capitalist values. It was not necessarily a protest against Wal-Mart. Now breathingplanet.net is calling for simultaneous Whirl-Mart action-performances across the country and/or globe on Sunday June 3 and the first Sunday of every month following.
