"
THIS IS AN ACTIVIST-ATTACK ON VIRGINIA'S WORKING-CLASS.  THE NUMBER OF WORKERS IN VIRGINIA'S MANUFACTURING-SECTOR HAS DROPPED BY NEARLY 50-PERCENT, IN THE PAST 20 YEARS.  IF WAL-MART, KROGER, AND OTHER RETAILERS CAVE TO THE 'GREEN ELITE', WE WILL LOSE EVEN MORE WELL-PAYING JOBS FOR VIRGINIAN-WORKERS.  VIRGINIANS MUST URGE OUR ELECTED-OFFICIALS NOT TO TOLERATE ATTEMPTS, BY GREENPEACE, TO DRIVE BUSINESSES FROM THE COMMONWEALTH."
