BlackFridayProtest.org Video Tutorial: How to Create a Fake Grassroots Campaign

Today, Worker Center Watch released a new video detailing how OUR Walmart manufactures their petition and protest numbers on BlackFridayProtests.org.  In previous years, OUR Walmart has made similar overinflated claims regarding the size and scope of actions, as well as the number of participants.

It’s been well documented in the press that OUR Walmart protestors are induced to participate with gift cards, and the vast majority are not actual employees but union members or professional protestors (view the Daily Show’s expose of the UFCW’s tactics in similar campaigns).
