This weekend in Los Angeles, community members are coming together for a demonstration to protest plans to build a Walmart in Chinatown, which they believe will compromise the neighborhood's integrity as an ethnic and cultural community. It's going down Saturday, June 30. The march begins 9:30am at the Chinatown Metro station. Here's a video that illuminates the issue:
