Wal-Mart resistance in the palouse

Local resistance

The Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development has posted a position paper on the "Big Wal-Mart Controversy" (Wal-Mart wants to bring one 'a them Great Big Mothers (GBMs for short) to Pullman).

They may manage to get some mitigation of the physical damage to the community (traffic, run-off, erosion, and the like), but I fear they will have a lot less luck with the social damage.

Still, every little bit helps in the resistance to BigCorpCapitalism [Godless Division], so wish 'em luck, boycott Wal-Mart, and consider more socially responsible companies for your shopping dollars. WinCo and CostCo come to mind.
