I had heard about this through another list I'm on, and was wondering how

I think we should sign up to do a showing!!

> Dear EmailNation Subscriber,
> Members of this list are used to hearing about Wal-Mart. We've been
> strongly supportive of efforts to pressure the world's wealthiest company
> to increase wages and alter business practices that are significantly
> inceasing low-wage dead-end, benefit-less jobs. We organized a public
> debate, shown on CSPAN, against The Economist magazine about Wal-Mart. We
> even started a regular web feature by Liza Featherstone called Wal-Mart
> So we're very excited about the potential of Robert Greenwald's new
> documentary, "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price," to raise more
> awareness about what's wrong with Wal-Mart and why. The film should be a
> powerful, emotional and entertaining way to help trigger change in the way
> the company conducts business in the US and across the globe.
> For more info: http://www.walmartmovie.com/?track=nation
> The only way the film can have an impact though is if lots of people help
> spread the word or, even better, consider hosting screenings of the movie
> Click below if you're interested in possibly hosting.
> (Just pick a day that is likely to be most convenient. You won't be bound
> to it! Don't worry about the details yet--Robert Greenwald's office will
> in touch with you as November draws closer.)
> There are three other ways you can help:
> Not sure you want to host an event? No problem. But please reserve your
> spot at a screening, and we'll make sure you're given first priority at
> getting into one near you this November. Click below to RSVP.
> Always wanted to get into showbiz? Here's your chance! Sign up to be a
> Field Producer for the Wal-Mart Movie. FP's do a variety of things. Click

> The last way to help is simply by passing this message on to your friends,
> family, co-workers...Anyone who you know who might want to be part of this
> exciting grassroots network dedicated to exposing the truth about
> Wal-Mart's causes and effects.
> With your support, we can help give the movie a citizens' premiere that
> will blow the lid off of traditional film distribution, and fuel the
> national debate raging on the high cost of Wal-Mart's "low prices."
> You can check out the film trailer here:
