Really Really Free Market
Saturday, Feb. 23rdth, 1pm-5pmish
110 Capp Street, SF - 5th Floor (off 16th St, between Mission and S. Van Ness)
Come to the Really Really Free Market! SHARE, ENJOY EACH OTHER'S COMPANY, BE CREATIVE, NOURISH, PLAY, MAKE FRIENDS… and create the world you really want! You make the market happen!
We all have skills, ideas, games, music, objects, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, laughter and many other things to share. If we bring them all together at the Really Really Free Market, we can start to create a more just and sustainable community. As a community, we have many more resources than we do as individuals. Some of us have a lot and some of us have not enough. Together we can overcome the alienation and passivity that makes us dependent on an unjust and unsustainable economy. If we share our resources, we can take care of each other and give away less of our life energy to corporations. This uses fewer of the Earth's resources and fewer of our working hours, leaving us more time to devote to ourselvesand our communities. Would we all work forty hours a week at one job if we didn't feel we had to? What if instead we worked at improving our individual skills and talents and shared them with each other? We would all spend more time doing things we enjoyed. The Really Really Free Market is an attempt to put these ideas into practice for four hours every month.
