13 Walmart protesters arrested in Balch Springs

Balch Springs police arrested 13 protesters today outside a Walmart Supercenter store.

The protesters were blocking the east and west bound traffic in the 12300 block of Lake June Road, creating “a dangerous situation for protesters and the public,” according to statement issued by police.

Officers “asked them several times to move out of the roadway and they refused to comply,” the statement said.

The protesters, with the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union, were charged with “walking on a roadway where sidewalks provided,” a misdemeanor.

3. Looking for the whole national workforce of Walmart to unionize and get the pay they are asking for.

Many Americans are unaware of the power of Unions and need to see the We The People in action. We The People also includes taxpayers subsidies in the form of welfare.
