Goytia will also take part in widespread protests against Wal-Mart on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, when stores across the country discount merchandise to entice holiday shoppers.As retailers gear up for what they say will be a shopping season of unprecedented profits, activist groups and small-business organizations are hoping to capitalize on a year of public anger over labor practices at retailers such as Wal-Mart.Anger over Wal-Mart policies is nothing new.

Some consumers, however, have already begun the wait in line for Black Friday sales. And it is unclear whether increased attention will translate into a change in consumer sentiment.
