Thu Nov 22 2007 (Updated 11/27/07)November 23rd Was Buy Nothing Day
Thu Nov 22 2007 (Updated 11/27/07)Events Around the Bay Area Show Alternatives to Consumerism
The day after Thanksgiving in the United States has traditionally been called "Black Friday." It is the biggest shopping day of the year, and thus it has put many companies' ledgers into the "black," eliminating debts that would have been indicated in "red" ink. Animal liberation activists use this day as an opportunity to present anti-fur messages, while others use "Buy Nothing Day" to make a statement about consumerism and its effect on society and the environment.
924 Gilman Street in Berkeley hosted "Screams of the Turkey" on Thanksgiving Day, starting with a potluck, video screening, board games, and a punk show. Friday kicked off with an Anti-Fur Exhibit and Outreach Event & Protest in Union Square, starting at 12pm. A Fur-Free Friday event in the East Bay was also planned.
Also on Friday, Berkeley Women in Black spoke out against war at Bancroft and Telegraph. At Geary and Stockton Streets in San Francisco, Globalize This! led Buy Nothing Day Caroling from 2pm to 4pm. In Santa Cruz, a Buy Nothing A-Cafe was held to support the community's resistance to UCSC's Long Range Development Plan, starting at 2pm with a visit to the community space below the tree-sit on campus. The day included skill-shares, discussions, food, games, and live entertainment.
Bicyclists gathered at 4pm at MacArthur BART for an Emeryville Buy Nothing Critical Mass Ride. Report Later that evening, 5LOWERSHOP hosted an "East Bay Punk" show. The holiday shopping resistance continued on Saturday with a Buy Nothing Day Really Really Free Market in San Francisco's Dolores Park from 1pm to 5pm.
