Twitter is ablaze with images and videos from Walmart workers striking ‘For Respect.’ We’ve collected some highlights in homage to the brave employees who are striking to demand respect from their employer and to catch the attention of millions of shoppers.

Please share so the rest of the nation can see what people who aren’t afraid to speak out can accomplish in the name of a more just economy:
