European Union

boicot Repsol

” In 2012 the government revived Spanish oil company Repsol’s permit from 2001 to explore for oil in the Canary Islands, which had been cancelled in 2004 by the supreme court after legal challenges…destroy repsol whaleThe move prompted outrage from environmentalists and locals and the Canariees government who had previously fought the plans.

The Solidarity Economy..money-free Revolution

The Solidarity Economy as a Strategy for Revolution

reblogged with thanks from:   http://www.corfizz.com/story.html

money free revolution

There are three roads to revolution. Some focus on seizing state power, others on revolutionary expropriation. The third strategy is to think seriously about how we would actually like to organise our lives and then to start putting these ideas into practice, constructing the new world directly, as a parallel alternative to capitalism.

Let’s be clear that the solidarity economy already exists and people are already fully engaged in the approach that I am describing. I am not messianically opening a new revolutionary pathway; I am merely reporting on a fruitful line of action, introducing it to newcomers, as well as offering some ideas about how it could develop to those who are interested.

by Julie Liardet..    GENEVA – People strolling, music, smiles, bursts of laughter. Customers walk between clothes and trinkets, homegrown zucchini and children’s games, spread on tables or on the ground. A neighbor has brought his electric razor; another has just found a book by French sociologist Marcel Mauss.

This kind of flea-market-with-veggies could be coming to your neighborhood soon. With a twist: here everything is 100% free.

The gratiferia (free fair) concept originally comes from Argentina and then expanded to neighboring countries and all of Latin America. The idea was quickly taken up in the U.S. and Canada, and this year, it has arrived in the Old World. Sales and swaps are completely forbidden at gratiferias. Everything must be in good condition, and of course, a bit of civic sense is required. Do not show up with a van and load up everything in sight. This free fair aims at “liberation from materialism,” with the goal of leaving behind “the oppression of the economic system.”gratis   momey free

Ariel Rodriguez Bosio, the brains behind the gratiferia, has posted a YouTube video entitled Continue reading Gratiferias: The Markets Where Everything Is Free
