On the occasion of a speech entitled “The Responsibility to Lead,” Walmart’s CEO Michael Duke is to be “welcomed” to Manhattan by 99pickets.org, a working group of Occupy Wall Street promising banners, musical instruments, chants and jeers.
The site is the Council on Foreign Relations, whose alumni includes everyone from Colin Powell to Henry Kissinger. The protest is scheduled from 4:30-6pm at the Harold Pratt House, 58 East 68th Street, New York, NY 10065, organized along with ALIGN and Occupy Bergen County (NJ).
