Chicago, IL - On a clear, sunny day here, June 7, over 150 supporters of striking Walmart workers gathered outside the downtown Walmart store. Speakers condemned Walmart's greed, low pay and harsh conditions at its stores in the U.S. and around the world.

The Chicago action was one of many that took place across the U.S and coincided with Walmart's annual shareholder meeting.

The Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart) organized the protest, which received support from members of the Chicago Teachers Union, Jobs with Justice, SEIU Healthcare, and Warehouse Workers for Justice.
