PROTEST AT EXXON: Let’s all make a point to get stabbed elsewhere.

“Exxon, Exxon you are bad. How’d you feel if you got stabbed?” and “Exxon, Exxon go to hell. We’ll go shopping at the Shell.”

Those were just two of many chants offered by 15 people protesting at the Exxon at Ponce de Leon Avenue and Monroe Drive last Wednesday afternoon. The protest was organized by Atlanta Progressive News founder Matthew Cardinale, who was stabbed during a robbery attempt near the station two weeks earlier. Cardinale says the attendant on duty turned him away when he walked in bleeding and asking for help.

Cardinale wants an apology from the store and for the employee who turned him away to be fired. CL was unable to reach the store’s owner, but day-shift employee Samad Sam says the employee on duty during the incident no longer works at the store. “Quit or fired. I don’t know,” Sam says.
