Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price

(except)

Please forward

Folks, Please visit //www.walmartmovie.com right now and buy this movie today. It will ship sometime around November 10, 2005, in time for a massive grassroots phenomenon, beginning on November 13. Join over 4,000 individuals who will volunteer their living room or local community meeting hall to hold a free screening (or three), for your friends, family and neighbors. We can all strike a very potent blow to Mall*Wart.

The film sells for 12.95 and its creator, Robert Greenwald, encourages YOU to make as many copies as you can possibly distribute.

On Pacifica Radio KPFK Los Angeles, Greenwald recently said, "I'd love to see WalMart sell this film at a lower price..."

Well the attacks have begun, no surprise there, but the fact they are attacking so hard, so early and so personally vicious is a sign of how seriously they are treating the film. And they should, the film combined with the expose in the New York Times about their duplicity, they say one thing, they do another, should be a one two punch in the butt of corporate hypocrisy.

And we need your help, they have a high priced, expensive PR machine that is in full throttle. But we have you, so write, call, visit your local newspaper, radio, tv station. Tell them how Wal-Mart has affected you, your family, your job, your health care, your community. Tell them why you are working to host a screening and spreading the word. Show them the trailer and talk them through why Wal-Mart is DEAD WRONG. You can find all the latest on Wal-Mart's Fear and Smear Campaign here:

They just released a video smear job and backgrounder, ON THE TRAILER. And they don't even get the attacks right, claiming snowfall in Ohio proves Wal-Mart did not crush H&H Hardware. The movie is quite clear on what crushed H&H Hardware, and it's got nothing to do with snow. It's a poignant example of the Wal-Mart effect, and you'll all get a chance to see it soon.

The other two attacks on the trailer are nothing but Wal-Mart's multi-million dollar spin machine at work trying to refute very well documented facts about Wal-Mart's discriminatory practices against women and minorities, and their stubborn refusal to pay a living wage.

And now Wal-Mart wants us to take down the trailer! Send a message to Wal-Mart by sending the trailer to everyone you know, and inviting them to a screening.

This is the perfect time to counter them, quickly, strongly and completely. They are spending millions hiring expensive PR firms to fight us because they are scared out of their minds at what you can do. They are messing with the wrong folks, and lets go right back at them. Thanks for your support and your efforts. We have aleady made an impact, and it will grow.

Robert Greenwald producer/director, Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price

P.S. Just 6 weeks ago, Wal-Mart's top spokesperson, Mona Williams said: "I guess we will pretty much ignore it -- because to all but a handful of anti-Wal-Mart activists, it simply will be irrelevant." Mona guessed wrong.

P.P.S. Check out some extended bonus scenes with a former Wal-Mart manager Weldon Nicholson. He talks about the culture of fear and retaliation. Confessions of a Wal-Mart Hit Man.

Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, the newest film from director and producer Robert Greenwald, will celebrate it's world premiere tonight in New York City before a sold-out audience.

The film takes the viewer on a deeply personal journey into the every day lives of families struggling to fight against a goliath. From a small business owner in the Missouri to a preacher in California, from workers in Florida to a poet in Mexico, dozens of film crews on three continents bring the story of an assault of families and American values. Current and former employees, managers and executives will tell all about the corporation's inner-workings. Wal-Mart is based on individual human beings, all over the world, at all levels of society, telling their story in very personal terms.

CommonDreams.org has teamed up with MoveOn.org, the Center for American Progress, Progressive Democrats of America, CODEPINK, Co-Op America, NOW, Global Exchange and other progressives to help distribute DVDs of Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price via the internet.

Get a copy of the film and show it everywhere you can. Give copies away. Make sure churches, schools, libraries and workplaces all have copies and play them loud and regularly. Call the office of your elected official and ask what they are doing to fight Wal-Mart.

Get your copy for $12.95 here
