As has already been mentioned here, tomorrow the city council is going to vote on whether or not Chicago should change its zoning laws to allow a Wal-Mart. One of the proposed sites on the South Side is close to the Trinity United Church of Christ, and the pastor there is not pleased about the possibility of a Wal-Mart in his community. In addition to putting an anti-Wal-Mart piece in the bulletin (pg 6), he's also organizing a demonstration against Wal-Mart. Weds May 26th, 8am at Daley Plaza.
