Fight the Big-Boxing of America

Thanks to Nation reader Matt Lipsky for letting us know that the Neighborhood Retail Alliance, a member of the Wal-Mart Free NYC coalition, now has a website and a blog.

The site details the Alliance's twenty-year fight to preserve small businesses in New York City, and features a comprehensive section on Wal-Mart, making the case from a small business and consumer perspective that the company would be bad for New York. Click here for info on how you can help.

There are also scores of other activist efforts currently working against the many manifestations of Wal-Mart's greed and perfidy. Notable among them is a new coalition called Wal-Mart Watch. (Read Liza Featherstone's new Nation online feature Wal-Mart Nation for details on the group's campaign in Maryland.)

We'll continue to keep our eyes out for effective opposition to the big-boxing of America, and please use our new comments section below to alert us to any campaigns you think we should be covering.
