Respect DC invades Laurel Wal-Mart with brass band
Over the July 16-17 weekend, Respect DC invaded the Laurel Wal-Mart with a flash mob that included protesterss beating drums and even a brass section, tuba and all
The entire flash mob had those yellow smiley faces, in some cases blowing the brass instruments through them. The song contained Respect DC’s demands against any Wal-Mart opening in DC, the manager looking befuddled as he could do nothing.
Eventually the entire flash mob marched right back out of the store unopposed! I guess for store security to call the police and attempt to make legally questionable arrests would have catapulted this story to the top of the TV news, with bad results for those trying to replace all of DC’s local stores with Wal-Mart supercenters.
