Musical Protesters Aim at Wal-Mart’s Developer [Video]

Protesters looking to block Wal-Mart from opening their first store in New York City are now aiming at the developer who could play a role in the mega-store’s arrival: Related Companies.

Here’s video of a musical protest conducted inside the Time Warner building, where Related is headquartered.

Update: The event was organized by the labor-backed New York Jobs with Justice.
