Default Consumer Virus Outbreak : Sheffield 28/11/09

Consumerism is rampant all over the world. This viral outbreak is engulfing society and turning the population into mindless drones.

This day is organized every year to protest mass consumerism which is ruining our environment and costing society dearly. The consumer virus dulls everything, we are only able to purchase happiness as opposed to finding happiness in action.

Join our Zombie Flashmob! Meet by the statue in the main Meadowhall concourse at 1pm on Saturday the 28th of November and do anything but shop!


We know that sweet tasty braaaains will be short supply during the run up to christmas, but let's see what we can do ...

Zombies and infection cleanup crew are all welcome : bring friends, costumes, signs and fake blood aplenty!!!

FEEL FREE TO INVITE FRIENDS : ALL FLESH MUST BE EATEN ...


A Facebook event can be found here : http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref...0455224&ref=ts


BACKGROUND:

Please join the international masses in this day of inaction and refrain from purchasing anything for 24 hours. Display your consumer power and don't buy anything on November 28th 2009!

Buy Nothing Day is an informal day of protest against consumerism observed by social activists. This day was founded by Vancouver artist Ted Dave and subsequently promoted by the Canadian Adbusters magazine (https://www.adbusters.org/).

The first Buy Nothing Day was organized in Vancouver in September of 1992 "as a day for society to examine the issue of over-consumption." In 1997, it was moved to the Friday after American Thanksgiving, which is one of the top 10 busiest shopping days in the United States. Outside of North America, Buy Nothing Day is celebrated on the following Saturday. Despite controversies, Adbusters managed to advertise Buy Nothing Day on CNN, but many other major television networks declined to air their ads. Soon, campaigns started appearing in United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Germany, New Zealand, Japan, the Netherlands, and Norway. Participation now includes more than 65 nations.

While critics of the day charge that Buy Nothing Day simply causes participants to buy the next day, Adbusters states that it "isn't just about changing your habits for one day" but "about starting a lasting lifestyle commitment to consuming less and producing less waste."
