Buy NOTHING .. Collapse Capitalism and Save the Planet!

This year, Adbusters, the folks behind BND, are upping the ante by promoting Buy Nothing Christmas, a challenge to not just skip a day of consumerism but opt out of the entire holiday shopping season

Buy Nothing Day 2012 is/was Sat 24/Nov. Could You Stop Spending for One Day?

Mark Boyle |Tuesday, 20th November 2012

Mark Boyle, author of The Moneyless Manifesto challenges you to take part in ‘Buy Nothing Month’ in 2013

It’s a classic scene from The Simpsons. A flock of marketing executives sit around a large table in a boardroom; sales, they’re told, are down in the third fiscal quarter, and they’re the people whose raison d’être is to make the graphs head northeasterly again. They break out into discussion, before a cigar-smoking man, with deep furrows of concern in his brow, intervenes.

He decides that they need to create a new day, and that it needs to be something “warm and fuzzy”. Cut to a new scene, where Homer is unwrapping his “Love Day” present, a talking toy bear called Sir Loves-a-Lot, whilst his daughter Lisa fills the rubbish bin full of Love Day wrapping paper.

Anarchists unite against Peru Repression

Sobre la creciente ola de represión en el Perú y el papel de los anarquistas

per Unión Socialista Libertaria – Perú 18 ago 2012
Pronunciamiento libertarioAnte este panorama de agudización del conflicto social y su consecuente criminalización urge la necesidad de consolidar y fortalecer las organizaciones populares por la defensa del agua, del medio ambiente y de nuestros derechos sociales. En el caso concreto de Conga, nosotros como anarquistas, pensamos que una salida viable al tema es potenciar la capacidad de respuesta y decisión de las propias comunidades afectadas y que esto se traduzca en su fuerza real para la administración y control directo de los recursos naturales que existan en sus tierras.
