This Saturday will mark the third annual Really Free Market, an opn-air, freewheeling day of skillshares, free exchange, and fun. Visual Resistance will be hosting a free workshop on screenprinting --- bring your own screens and extra t-shirts and we'll make help you print!
The full description for this year's event is available on NYC Indymedia. Email inourhearts[at]gmail.com for more infomation. About the Really Free Market:
The Really Free Market is an open-air bazaar and celebration, where we discard capitalist notions of interaction and have fun trying new models of exchange.
This will only be as great as you make it. We will provide the framework; you supply the material. Bringing free stuff and planning skill-shares are great ways to get involved.
If you have a skill to share, stuff to give away, a crazy art thing to do, music to play, an idea for entertainment or a topic to discuss; email us soon and let us know what you are planning! Otherwise, plan on bringing your own table or blanket and coming and going as you please, and if you want contact us, just e-mail: email@example.com
Show up to St. Mark's Church with something to share, and let this be another step in our movement towards a really, really free world. Bring friends and gifts, leave your wallet at home.
WHY REALLY REALLY FREE MARKETS?
Because there is enough for everyone.
Because sharing is more fulfilling than owning.
Because corporations would rather the landfills overflow than anyone get anything for free.
Because scarcity is a myth constructed to keep us at the mercy of the economy.
Because a sunny day outside is better than anything money could buy.
