WAL-MART - THE HIGH COST OF LOW PRICE
Robert Greenwald, US, 2005 97 mins
This highly-praised documentary exposes the human and environmental cost of the retail giant's global takeover. Small communities and businesses are driven under, employees are forced to choose between food and health insurance, and employment rights are destroyed. But meanwhile in California, a community gets together to take on and defeat the ogre... This film is guaranteed to make you think twice about giving your custom to the local supermarket.
* Discussion led by Ed Blissett, London Regional Secretary, GMB Britain's General Union, and John Woolf, member of the Hertford & Essex Area Committee of the Co-operative Group
Discussion scheduled to last a further 60 mins.
