 This Friday, Walmart workers around the world will join our fight.Thanks to you and the courage of over 500 Walmart workers who went on strike across the country on Black Friday, the world heard the stories of workers rather than news about the price of a flat screen TV. When workers decided to strike on the busiest shopping day of the year, we wondered if more than a handful of committed activists would be there to support them. Let's be honest; most of us look forward to taking this time off, to spend time with our loved ones. Instead, something beautiful happened. Supporters around the country stood with the strikers. Walmart workers walked out and were greeted by nearly 1,200 reported Black Friday actions, with well over 30,000 supporters! You made this happen. Activists of all stripes, together with artists, musicians, actors, bloggers and community and online organizations, and unions all lent their talents to support striking Walmart workers and call on the company to change.We are truly overwhelmed by the outpouring of support. Best of all, this is only the beginning ! This Friday, Walmart workers in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, India, Nicaragua, Zambia and South Africa are working with their unions to hold a Global Day of Action. Join them by downloading materials and holding your own solidarity action at a Walmart near you.

In Solidarity,

Underdog = Don Jones
