Activism Works!

And here's the proof:

Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, yesterday posted its worst monthly sales figures since its records began in 1980.

The company said same store sales fell 3.5% in April on the same month a year ago. Same store sales measure the performance of stores that have been open for at least 12 months.

Oh dear. Of course, this has nothing to do with the revelations about Wal-Mart's dubious tactics in ensuring that they remain the leading retailer in the US. It will take a lot to bring Wal-Mart down, but little by little we can do some serious damage to the biggest symbol of the evils of capitalism in the Western world. Activism does work.
