More than two-dozen Occupy Santa Rosa protesters staged a brief demonstration inside the Wal-Mart store in Rohnert Park on Wednesday, seeking to call attention to the political influence of the world's largest retailer.
The group gathered in an aisle near the electronics department around 3:45 p.m., chanting, "Attention, Wal-Mart shoppers and employees."
The demonstration was part of a nationwide day of protest targeting companies that belong to the American Legislative Executive Council, organizer Carl Patrick said.
Protesters chanted in the store for about 5 minutes, then left the building just as police arrived. No arrests were reported.
