Submission + - Time for Miami to Just Say No to Walmart (huffingtonpost.com)

kraksmoka writes: "One hactivist with an online petition at www.nowalmartinmidtown.com and 3000 signatures turned into an all out campaign to fight the world's largest retailer. Hactivist local Grant Stern highlights a classic example of local corruption in the face of corporate money: "More than a year after plans were announced, Walmart still cannot fit an oversized Super Center store into Midtown Miami by design, hook or crook. Two complete sets of plans have been delivered to the City of Miami, but neither follows local design standards. I suppose deeming the Walmart plan for Midtown a failure for having supplied two complete sets of non-compliant plans would be a private sector idea.""
