Hundreds of warehouse workers organizing to form a union at warehouses operated by huge U.S. retailers east of Los Angeles rallied Thursday. They shut down a Wal-Mart warehouse with civil disobedience. During the action Daniel Medress of Warehouse Workers United described the scene:

‘Eight people, five clergy members and three workers in the driveway. This warehouse, this Wal-Mart warehouse, has been shut down. There has not been a single truck to exit or enter this facility in well over an hour.’
