Watching this vid by Reverend Billy and the Choir is my favorite way to celebrate Buy Nothing Day, the day after Thanksgiving, or Black Friday, as the merchants call it.
It's nice that public aversion to this day is catching on, because it seems most people were enthusiastic about it not so long ago and even felt it was a chance to get good bargains and help the merchants with their bottom line. The awareness of how badly minimum wage workers are treated in Wal-Mart and other big box stores may play a role in this new consumer awareness.
Buy Nothing Day was started by those Canadian troublemakers at Adbusters, the same people who instigated the Occupy movement. This surprisingly powerful group is also responsible for the slogan, "We are the 99%." Wikipedia entry here. And they did all this with mere words and pictures, without firing a shot. Amazing, really. They wandered in the wilderness for years, very much on the margin of things, and now look!
