Walmart Trying to Sneak Into NYC?

I was just saying to somebody this weekend, "well at least we don't have a Walmart here yet.." but according to this protest I may not be able to say that for long?

Protest Against Backdoor Walmart in the Bronx

Please join with the UFCW, Community Organizations, Small Business Groups,
Members of the Clergy and organizations concerned with responsible and
accountable development at a:

Press Conference and Rally to
Slam "The Backdoor" on Walmart and BJ's

Monday January 23rd
Steps of New York City Hall

By seeking approval from the City Council to build the new Gateway Mall at
the Bronx Terminal Market and failing to identify the tenants of the proposed
mall, developers are providing a "backdoor" for Walmart and BJ's to
escape scrutiny of their labor and business practices. This deception cannot
be allowed.

Labor, Community and Clergy:
Unified in Keeping NYC Walmart Free
