HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Eager shoppers weren't the only ones out in full force early Friday morning.

More than a dozen Occupy Honolulu protestors stood in front of the Walmart on Keeaumoku Street.

The protestors, who have been camping at Thomas Square for nearly two weeks, were speaking against Walmart.

Protestors say the corporation supports child labor and suppresses its work force.

"Sweat shops in China and around the world produce these products. People are paying low prices at Walmart, and when Walmart came in here, this neighborhood lost a lot of mom and pop stores," Occupy Honolulu protestor Alala Zusman said.

"Usually people come out on this day because it's cheaper for everyone to get their stuff for what they need, usually for Christmas and stuff, but they are over here trying to cut it down I guess," Walmart shopper Christian Canete said.

Honolulu police were at the scene, but no arrests were made.
