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…)

Political Prisoner Birthday Poster For September 2014 Is Now Available

birthday cakeHello Friends and Comrades,

1) Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for September. As always, please post this poster publicly and/or use it to start a card writing night of your own.

2) A bail and legal fund has been established to support the 43 or so people who have been arrested during the initial anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. Please spread the word widely and help get some money together to get these people out.

All funds collected will be used to support those arrested during the demonstrations–their bail money, fines, legal funds, or other related expenses. In the unlikely event that there are additional funds, they will be used to support people resisting police repression and police violence in the future. Thank you.

For more information on what’s been going on in Ferguson you can check out these articles on our blog.

3) No, for real, come celebrate the Ten-Year Anniversary of the Carrboro Really Really Free Market! A wild party! The Carrboro Really Really Free Market is celebrating its ten-year anniversary with a massive festival! You’re invited for a whole weekend of really really free activities. We’re hoping comrades from around the world will join us in making this something to remember! (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!
