Walmart workers protest Trump

WalmartWorkersProtestTrumpNew York City – One hundred fifty people stood outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue on July 7 and shouted: “Donald Trump—KKK! Racist, sexist, anti-gay!” and “¡Sí, se puede!” They were demanding business behemoth Walmart denounce billionaire Trump’s racist, woman-hating and anti-immigrant statements. “Making Change at Walmart,” a campaign of the Food and Commercial Workers, called the rally. Besides its members, other protesters included members of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, representing Macy’s workers. Showing solidarity were “Make the Road-New York,” a group that builds Latino/a and working-class community, and the Black Institute, which focuses on public policy affecting Black people and people of color “throughout the diaspora.” The protest was part of a national day of action demanding that big business withdraw financial support from the Republican National Convention. Other protests were held in Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. (
