Gather for a funeral for capitalism on Leap Day: eulogy, procession through the streets with a New Orleans-style brass band, burial – dancing on the grave to follow

Funeral attire suggested.

Use your extra day to bid farewell to a system that brings us meaningless jobs, billionaires, shopping malls, structural poverty, and ecological collapse. May it roast in hell or rot in peace. Let's resurrect a world of cooperation, justice, pleasure and beauty from its moldy bones. Don't mourn – Organize!

Sponsored by Crafts and Insurrection Convergence & Leap Day Action Night
