While the usual stories of overcrowded lines and violent shopper actions dominated Black Friday headlines for another year, ‘Occupy Oklahoma City’ protesters provided something different from the day’s norm.

Demonstrators gathered at three Wal-Marts in Oklahoma City and mic-checked both employees and customers. The Occupiers mentioned in their speech how Wal-Mart workers are paid well below the poverty line for a family of four while their CEO Mike Duke continues having an enormous salary.

Ten protesters were arrested at the third Wal-Mart location they visited, according to NBC Oklahoma City affiliate KFOR.
