Happy Buy Nothing Day!
I love what the Pittsburgh contingent of CODEPINK is doing to mark the day:
For the second year in a row, Codepink will gather (dressed in pink of course) in downtown Pittsburgh on the most frantic shopping day of the year, to tell consumers to buy nothing - especially the war. We will take the opportunity to stress anti-consumerism, and anti-militarism. We will be passing out large pink price tags, reminding shoppers of the high human and financial price of war. We had a great crowd last year, and hope for more this year. We will be chanting our favorite "We're Women, We're Marching, We're Not Out Shopping".
If I had more energy today, I'd be tempted to throw on some pink and do this at the local mall, myself.
