Lopez Obrador’s followers target Wal-Mart

Having abandoned their encampments in Mexico City’s main plaza, followers of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador held protests at 22 Wal-Mart outlets around the capital, accusing the company of “system violation of labor rights,” and “an open campaign in favor of Felipe Calderon.” Protesters charged that Wal-Mart employees had been ordered to vote for Calderon on threat of being fired.
