Richmond October Really Really Free Market

6 Oct

Richmond, Virginia Monthly Really Really Free Market

The October Really Really Free Market will be on Saturday October 25th from noon until 6.

The Really Really Free Market happens the last Saturday of every month in Monroe Park, at the corner of Main and Laurel.

The Really Really Free Market started in Richmond in April, with events April, June, July, August, and September. Originally held in Holly Street Park in Oregon Hill, the event now occurs monthly in Monroe Park so as to be more visible and more accessible. Some months Richmond Food Not Bombs has come with free food. There have been workshops led by community members and musical performances as well. Community members have brought games to play with each other at the market. Vegan cookies have also been known to make an appearance.

We are bombarded with messages every day that the sheer amount of things that we own is equal to the amount of success that we have had in our lives, instead of placing value on the people that we meet and the experiences that we have.

The RVA Really Really free markets (based on Really Really Free Markets [www.reallyreallyfree.org]) provide people with a chance to share the excess that they possess, to prevent the landfills from filling with stuff that will never decompose and is nowhere near the end of its usefulness, and to offer the community a chance to come together for a day of free fun in the sun! (or rain!)

So the last Saturday of every month, bring your music, your skills, your stuff, your food, and your friends and family, and help us prove that there is enough stuff in the world for everybody!

Meeting Community Needs with Community Surplus.

A really really free market is an alternative to the capitalist version of a ‘free market’ where in fact, nothing is free. The really really free market is a place where people can come bring things they no longer need or use and give them away. The really really free market is a place where people can come get the things they need for free, without having to participate in the corporate, killer market. Really really free market builds community instead of destroying it.

Any stores, restaurants, or organizations are welcome to bring their surplus items or food to share with the community.

The Really Really Free Market is not about bartering, selling, or discounting. All items are 110% free. No one has to bring something to get something. Everyone can take what they would like regardless of their contribution.

People can come to share things besides the physical. Anyone interested in sharing their skills or knowledge through a workshop should let us know or just show up and teach others. Anyone interested in performing, music or reading poetry or whatever, should contact us or just show up.

So dig through your closets, take the extra from your work, ask your parents and friends and neighbors to come to bring stuff and come to get stuff. Bring clothes, furniture, food, tapes, cds, office supplies, kitchen stuff, knick knacks, paddy whacks, etc.

The best way to make the event awesome is to advertise, so make your own fliers, tell people, mark your calenders.

Anything left at the end of the day will be taken to Diversity Thrift.

The November Really Really Free Market will be on Saturday Novemeber 29th.

The December Really Really Free Market will be on Saturday December 27th.

If anyone is interested in volunteering, helping to advertise, or finding out more information you can do so through the internet, email, or phone.

Freegan- From Cuddle Puddles and Hot Pants # 2

2 Feb

Freegan is a variety of vegan which in my interpretation will eat non-vegan food if doing so does not contribute to the exploitation of animals. Continue reading

Straight Edge Zines

24 Nov

I’ve been looking to find zines written by straight edge people or just about reasons for not drinking/smoking/doing drugs. I really really like it when these issues are discussed in anarchist circles. I wish there was more crossover between the straight edge scene and the anarchist scene. A lot of straight edge kids are mainstream politically (or even conservative- like the anti-abortion hardcore kids) and I think that turns a lot of anarchists off of the idea of straightedge.

I went to Plan 9 records and Chop Suey books today, and both places allowed me to put my zine Cuddle Puddles and Hot Pants on consignment there. It will be 2.50 at Plan 9 at 2 bux at Chop Suey. All profits from the zine and my distro, Approaching Apocalypse, go to Richmond Food Not Bombs. So if you are in Richmond, check out my zine! Fools…

I was really happy that these places still let people sell zines. Oh yea, I also have some for sale at Food For Thought Books  and Mixed Nuts in Amherst, MA. I hope people buy em and write me!!!

Goals for my self

31 Oct

The idea here is one I saw online (www.triplux.com/dayzero) and instantly realized was a good plan for organizing all the thoughts flitting around in my head, which is to make a list of 101 goals for yourself and try to get them all done within 1001 days- which is like 275 days. My challenge will start once I finish making this list.

Future

11 Oct

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’m going to do after college- which is premature I know,  but it has been on my mind so I figure I’ll let it loose and maybe then be able to do my senior thesis.  So options I’ve been thinking about: Continue reading
