Anti-Walmart Protest

In June 2012, in Los Angeles there are many protesting the possibility of a Walmart branch being erected in the Chinatown area of the city.

L.A. Union Aficio reported that Tom Morello, fellow musician Ben Harper, civil rights leader Dolores Huerta, U.S. congresswoman Judy Chu, and L.A. Labor leader Maria Elena Durazo marched with union workers during the protest which started at the Los Angeles State Historic Park and led all the way to the intersection of Broadway and Cesar Chavez Blvd.

United Food and Commercial Workers international union president Joe Hansen told the crowd, “Our demands are clear. Walmart must provide a living wage, quality health care, demonstrate respect for local communities, and uphold workers’ rights here and around the world.”[1]
