ONE SMALL VICTORY
This week a new Urban Outfitters store opened up in Vancouver BC Canada and we were there to protest by handing out pamphlets educating their customers (click left to read the pamphlet). After two days we achieved a small victory when they promised to pull their hijacked LEGALIZE IT t-shirt from the shelves of this location in exchange for us not coming back every day to hand out more pamphlets.
This seems to be the only way to get through to them - the ground roots approach, hitting individual stores and real people instead of their corporate headquarters where we've been virtually stonewalled - so we're going to be handing out these pamphlets in front of the majority of their locations across the United States and Canada over the next few months. If you live in a city that has an Urban Outfitters store in it and you have a couple of hours to spare for the cause, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll be documenting all of the protests here so stay tuned.
