Pathetic Protest at Missoula, Montana WM

It ain't a protest with only 11 protesters:

MISSOULA � Empty shopping carts, pushed by 11 people clad mostly in pink, gathered in the center of the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Missoula at lunch time Friday.

"I'm going to have to ask you to leave now," an employee told the group, which then formed a conga line and circled the huge store 1 1/2 times chanting "buy local, buy American" before exiting.

Shoppers looked on with a mixture of amusement and puzzlement.

"We heard you the first time," a young boy kept shouting back.

It was "Buy Nothing Day," according to Code Pink, the women's peace movement that organized the protest.

Code Pink's website is amusingly pink.
