A group of ne'er-do-wells will be picketing the Berkeley, CA Whole Foods at Ashby and Telegraph on Sunday, August 16, from 12:30pm-3:30pm to show their disapproval of John Mackey's anti-health-care agitprop in the WSJ. Picketers will bring signs, flyers, sunscreen, and perhaps most importantly, food from local farmers' markets and family-owned natural food stores to share with passers-by to show that they don't have to patronize a corporation that is actively seeking to cause them harm.
RSVP on Facebook here if you're local: Facebook event listing
Not local? Picket your local Whole Foods! Remember to offer people local and organic food from preferable sources, like your farmer's market, CSA, co-op, or non-chain organic groceries... show everyone where else we can take our business! Ideally there will be protests at Whole Foods across the country on Sunday.
Since Whole Foods is attempting to silence debate in their own forums and ignoring letters, calls, and emails protesting this outrageously harmful activity, we have to take the discussion to the streets!
