International buy nothing day has only just been brought to my attention!
Apparently it is the 20th anniversary of this amazing concept that empowers people to make a statement by simply doing nothing, more importantly, spending nothing.
I am not going to write any points of view here, I just simply want to point people in the direction of something that they may find interesting.
You’ve been sleeping on the streets for two months pleading peacefully for a new spirit in economics. And just as your camps are raided, your eyes pepper sprayed and your head’s knocked in, another group of people are preparing to camp-out. Only these people aren’t here to support occupy Wall Street, they’re here to secure their spot in line for a Black Friday bargain at Super Target and Macy’s.
Go check out the adbusters website for a very interesting read. Lots of things you can do to “#occupyxmas” too.
