Walmart is garnering lots of headlines these days for its plans to force employees to work on Thanksgiving.
If you’re an angler, you should be more concerned about the huge contributions that the Walton Family Foundation makes to anti-fishing groups.
Here’s an excerpt from “Walton Family Greenwashing”:
“The Walton Family Foundation proudly reported ‘investments’ totaling more than $71.4 million in ‘environmental initiatives’ in 2011, including contributions to corporate ‘environmental’ NGOs pushing ocean privatization through the ‘catch shares’ programs and so-called ‘marine protected areas’ like those created under Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative.”
The MLPA, by the way, has been used --- and misused --- to deny angler access to some of California’s best fishing grounds.
