Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price Screening @ 2640 Tonight

There are scores of reasons to boycott Wal-Mart. Listing them all here would be very near impossible. But if you care at all for human rights, make no mistake, Wal-Mart treats it’s employees like slaves; Literally locking them in the store overnight, collecting on ‘dead peasant’ insurance policies, forcing employees onto medicaid, and union busting.

Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price will be shown in a free screening at 2640 tonight. 7 pm.

That’s not what we need in Remington, and tonight the good people at Bmore Local are pleased to present a free screening of Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price at 2640 Space. if you missed the coming out party at City Hall last week, this is another great chance to connect with your neighbors in person and unite to shape the growth of our city in a sensible, positive way.

Come out and say hello, see the film and sign up for the mailing list. Of course, whether you can make it tonight or not you can still join over 500 people on Facebook who make up the Bmore Local group there.

Bmore Local Rally, Stoop Storytelling in Baltimore Tonight

What’s that Baltimore? You hate Mondays and you worked really hard all day and those reports are due and that meeting was a snoozer and the intern is incompetent and all you want to do is flop down on the couch and eat chocolate Cheerios for dinner and pass out?

Well, forget it. The Chop has plans for you today.

Bmore Local rallies to stop Wal-Mart at City Hall today. 4 pm.

Today, as soon as you get out of work, you’re heading straight down to City Hall to attend the Bmore Local coming out party/ meeting and rally at City Hall, as mentioned in the Mobtown Shank blog late last week. Today’s rally is a direct response to councilwoman Belinda Conaway’s plan to introduce the PUD for the 25th Street Station project, including a 24 hour Wal-Mart.

We can’t say we know too much about Bmore Local as yet, but the Chop definitely aims to show up and find out what they’re about. We’re really hoping this is the larger citywide Wal-Mart opposition we’ve been waiting for.

For more on the Wal-Mart proposal, be sure to check out the Shank as well as the Baltidome Blog.

Stoop Storytelling weaves a yarn at Centerstage tonight. 7 pm.

The good news is that after you sit through most of a boring council meeting, you get to head up Calvert Street to Centerstage for this month’s installment of the Stoop Storytelling Series. You can even get your tickets now to save time and avoid a sellout. Tonight’s topic is ‘Behind the Muse”, in which artists and creative types give their take on the creative process.

You might be wondering what it takes to create a daily blog, but the answer to that is simple: a liberal amount of Scotch, a Google calendar, a touch of internet porn, and a whole lot of righteous indignation.
