Buy Nothing Day 2001
Buy Nothing Day 2001 for PEACE
A strange and wonderful thing has happened since September 11th - the anti-consumerism and peace movements have started to come together. Buy Nothing Day 2001 could be our first opportunity to go global and make some much-needed noise.
A group of jammers in Fairbanks has come up with an easy way to bring the big ideas together. On November 23, a large group will meet outside the Fred Meyers store - the best-known consumer symbol in Alaska. Each person will be wearing a t-shirt that reads, "PEACE WORKS." They then plan to silently walk in single file though the store until they're sure that the shoppers are making the connection.
If you haven't decided what to do for Buy Nothing Day and beyond, consider this simple, effective jam. George W. and Tony Blair say shopping is the best way to protect First World freedoms and support
the new war. We say, "Buy Nothing - For Peace!"
