Wal-Mart Is Selling An Occupy Wall Street Poster

[Update: The posters are sold out.] Occupy Wall Street has spent over two years now protesting the greed of big corporations, including Wal-Mart for low wages, anti-worker tactics, high CEO-to-worker pay ratio and reliance on government programs to feed workers.

Now, in an ironic twist, Wal-Mart is selling a poster portraying the protests in New York City.

"Quite possibly the only thing funnier than being able to purchase a Ché Guevara tee shirt at a big box chain store would be the ability to buy a panoramic poster featuring Occupy Wall Street’s encampment in Lower Manhattan from that chain," writes Andrew Kirell at Mediaite.

Two panoramic photos of Occupy Wall Street's heyday in Zuccotti Park have been printed on "Premium Heavy Stock Paper which captures all of the vivid colors and details" of the protests; you can buy these images on Walmart.com for $52.25 for a 36" x 12" print, or $42.75 for a 27" x 9" print.

The posters are being sold through the Walmart Marketplace, the big box’s equivalent of an individual sellers market, with each seller requiring pre-approval from the company. It’s unclear whether individual items for sale require approval.
