Because there is enough for everyone

Because sharing is more fulfilling than owning

Because capitalists would rather see 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 can buy

Because free trade is a contradiction of terms

Because no one should have to do without food, shelter, and togetherness

Because life should be a picnic, but it only will be if we ABOLISH CAPITALISM (more…)

The 119th Free Market

Saturday September 6th was the 9 Year and 11 Month Anniversary of the Carrboro Really Really Free Market. That’s 119 Really Really Free Markets. We celebrated by making piñatas for the 120th Really Really Free Market, the 10 year Anniversary next month on OCTOBER 4th at 2PM. Did we mention we’re having a pinata contest? And a birthday cake contest!

This Saturday our world famous free market was visited by Ashanti Alston andSubmedia, both of whom just spoke on UNC campus.  Like always many things were exchanged, from the usual watermelon, ice cream, groceries, boots, books and clothes to the unusual, a telescope! One very happy young person will be doing some late night star gazing from the balcony of their Carrboro apartment.

And next month, cloud cover and light pollution allowing, we can all star gaze together on Carrboro Town Commons. A little astronomy is just one of the many things being shared during our 10 Year Celebration. We’ve confirmed bike repair, radical history, a harm reduction workshop, a puppet show and all kinds of music. Food Not Bombs and Prayers & Pancakes will both be serving up meals and snacks and there will be a grocery distribution as well. (more…)

Countdown to the Really Really Free Festival!

rrfm10-1From Really Free Carrboro

The first fliers are finished announcing the ten-year anniversary of Carrboro’s Really Really Free Market this coming October 4!

Please print and circulate these widely. We are expecting participants from all over the region, making this a day to remember.

In addition to a variety of booths, installations, and the usual cornucopia of free materials, the festival will feature several different tracks of programming: bands, DJs, puppeteers, workshops and discussions, games, and more. If you would like to speak, perform, or organize some other activity, please email carrbororrfm (at) riseup (dot) net.

We have confirmed that the Recyclery will be there fixing bicycles—and giving them away! A licensed massage therapist has signed on, too, alongside other participants. Really really free bicycles, really really free medical care—the sky is the limit. What can you bring?

We will be publishing a preliminary schedule of events and performers shortly. (Alternatively, you could plan to surprise everyone!) There will also be at least two competitions—birthday cakes, and piñatas.

See you this October!
