Citizens Say NO! To Yet Another Walmart In DeKalb Co.
There is a virus infecting towns and cities across America. It can found in all fifty states, and once it enters your town, many small business owners are the first to feel it's effects. The virus is known as Walmart. Once it comes to your town, your local downtown shopping area can be destroyed and abandoned within months, leaving empty store fronts, "For Rent" signs and higher unemployment. But citizens in DeKalb Co. Georgia are fighting back, trying to inoculate their local shopping plaza from a planned Walmart. Local officials have been secretly working with a developer to clear the way for a corporation that many in the area don't want in their town. This film documents the outreach walk they held on March 10th, 2012. It runs 42 minutes.
