Beyoncé in town for Walmart (a threat to public health)
Great news for Fayeteville residents, Beyoncé is in town for the Walmart Shareholders Meeting, held every year, here, at the Bud Walton Arena on the University of Arkansas campus. Last Christmas, Beyoncé appeared in Walmart Xmas ads on t.v., opening gifts with her family. But since I'm not a shareholder, I won't get to see her perform, keeping it real. Nor am I invited to the private party for Beyoncé this evening, to be held at one of our local watering holes.
But I will be at the rally tomorrow sponsored by the local Against the Wal Coalition, and co-sponsored by Jobs with Justice, the Ruckus Society and Little Rock ACORN. We will be dressing up in hazmat suits and armed with yellow caution tape, and will be putting the meeting under quarantine, as a threat to public health. I plan to take photos, which I'll post as soon as I am able.
(P.S. For what it's worth, you can view photos of Beyoncé performing for the Walmart pep rally here.)
