A few friends and I went to the Black Friday protest at the Walmart in Renton this morning. Good to see the turnout....at least 200 people, and this was happening at hundreds of stores around the country. I doubt we made a dent in sales, but it was enough to get media attention. King 5 news was on hand.
The rain was heavy this morning, even for Seattle...that didn't stop these intrepid protesters.
Lots of cuties out this morning, too.
Two or three police cruisers, a firetruck, an ambulance, and an unmarked gray van had the entrance covered. A few protesters split off during the march and actually tried to occupy the storefront. That didn't last long.
