In early March, the United Food & Commercial Workers rejected a contract offer from Shaw’s Supermarkets and 300 distribution center workers walked out on strike.
Since that time, the strikers have been replaced, the UFCW has collected donations, marched and are futilely trying to boycott Shaw’s. Now, having exhausted its tactics aimed at putting pressure on Shaw’s, the UFCW has resorted to trespassing in order to conduct “flash mobs.”
One of the most creative actions in support of the workers involved a flash mob at a Shaw’s in Somerville, Maine, led by the Somerville Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society band and an activist chorus. They sang “Ain’t Gonna Shop at Shaw’s No More” to the tune of “Down By the Riverside” (see video above). After briefly telling shoppers about the strike and chanting “Boycott Shaw’s,” the band and chorus marched out the door.
No arrests were reported.

Both groups love socialized healthcare, both groups love allowing men in women’s restrooms, and now both groups are telling a fresh new lie about Ted Cruz. In this case, | Read More »
In true Trump fashion, Trump’s Arizona chairman Jeff DeWit promised a lawsuit over the delegate debacle because everything in the whole world is unfair when it doesn’t go Trump’s way. But behind the scenes? Apparently DeWit was well aware it was the Trump team’s own shortcomings that led to the delegate results, and let’s just say he was less than thrilled about it.
John Culberson has introduced three bills which will strengthen immigration enforcement by ensuring that every illegal alien over the age of eighteen is prosecuted wherever they’re found in the U.S., illegal immigrant convicts are fined, imprisoned, or both, and felony criminal illegal aliens are deported upon completion of their sentences.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Earlier today, we reported on the New Hampshire GOP’s attempts to vote Republican National Convention leadership slots via e-mail vote. The controversy stemmed from the fact that the list of candidates for state delegate leadership included no Donald Trump supporters, despite the fact that Trump won the state. Word has now come out that the NHGOP, caving to pressure from | Read More »
