While many are celebrating the slashed prices today, Reverend Billy and his Stop Shopping Choir are lambasting the Black Friday masses and the corporate overlords that preside over them. This morning the good Rev hit Macy's for his annual Buy Nothing Day. In an op-ed yesterday, he wrote, "We'll be there at 5am, when shoppers who have been up all night wait in line rush the glass doors. This is the human comedy at its most sad, and it is an environmental shopocalypse."
Around 11 a.m. the Reverend and his choir continued their crusade against corporate capitalism and were out at the Valley Stream Wal-Mart holding a memorial for Jdimytai Damour, who was killed in a stampede last year.
