This Friday, 23 November, is known in the USA as "Black Friday," the day following Thanksgiving  and the traditional beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
It will also go down in history as a turning point in the effort to win rights at work for employees of Wal-Mart, the world's largest employer, as strikes take place at Wal-Mart locations across the United States.
You can be part of this in the following ways:
Follow the news on LabourStart -- bookmark this page:
Sign the online petition to Wal-Mart telling them to stop retaliation against workers who speak out: 
On Friday, watch the live stream showing what is happening across the country in real time:

Finally, get your union to show the latest news from the fight to unionize Wal-Mart on its website, free of charge, updated throughout the day, every day -- more details here:
Thank you!
