I was thinking about doing this at Walmart in Bremerton. We'd prolly need like 16 people then divide it into 4 groups. The more the better. I was thinking a Sunday since alot of families including mine go food shopping after church.
"It involves a group making plans to visit some local multinational corporate storefronts and spend 3/4 to one hour in the store contemplating. We have found a good method is to enter the store in one or two person groups wearing some subtle messages about anti-consumersim. Spread yourself out in the store, looking at products, asking yourself, fellow shoppers, and or your partner questions. At a set time, usually every 10-15 minutes, all participants begin moving around the store. There will organically form a line of people with empty carts/baskets. As soon as the first whirl attracts attention (loudspeaker and/or manager), the group disperses, returning to new places to practice contemplation. The cycle starts again after 8-10 minutes of practicing contemplation. Two to four whirls are average, dependant on the managers ability to keep his cool. " - whirlersunite.com
I found this really cool sweatshop warning card files online that we could place in pockets of clothings. Or in the shoe boxes. This would be rad to do, especially before Buy Nothing Day Day after Thanksgiving. Opening up their xmas present to this card, that would get people aware.
