Calling all anarchists and activists whether you’ll be
going back home from the G8 protests in Savannah, or you live in
the southeast, come join us for a full day of feasting,
skill-sharing, gift-exchanging, and game-playing, followed by a
revolutionary punk, metal, and hip hop show - all free!
Anarchists, activists and communities to celebrate alternative
economics at the "Really REALLY Free Market" in Raleigh, June 12
Local artists, activists, and community members will gather at
Chavis Park in Raleigh on June 12 for a festive manifestation of
cooperative values. This event comes immediately on the heels of
the meeting of the G8, the most powerful and exclusive elite in
the world, on Sea Island off the coast of Georgia. On Sea Island,
protected by well over $25 million worth of security, the delegates
to the G8 will make decisions affecting the fate of the planet in
undemocratic, closed meetings; in Chavis Park, we will
demonstrate in action our vision of an alternative world, a world
in which power is held in common and “free” means just
that: really, really free.

We invite everyone to join in this people’s bazaar—the
“Really REALLY Free Market” In the tradition of the first
Really REALLY Free Market in Miami last fall, this will be a
market that values both cultural and ecological diversity, in which
all are truly free to give, receive, and create on their own terms, in
which people can fulfill their needs by working together. Rather
than a protest against the injustices of the so-called free market
and the fat cats who benefit from it, this will be a celebration of
the cooperation and gift-giving that make life possible beyond the
constraints of mere economics.

Individuals and groups are encouraged to organize performances,
creative events, and stands for the bazaar. Such stands could
share food, games, music, clothing, or any other important
resources; the only stipulation is that there is no buying, selling,
or promoting involved—in this market, everything is strictly
free! Show up to Chavis Park June 12 with something to share,
and let this be another step in our movement towards a really,
really free world.

Because there’s enough for everyone
Because sharing is more fulfilling than owning
Because corporations would rather the 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 could
Because “free trade” is a contradiction in terms Because
no one should have to do without food, shelter, entertainment,
and community
Because life should be a picnic, but it only will be if make it

What: The Really REALLY Free Market Where: Chavis Park,
505 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Raleigh When: Noon,
Saturday, June 12
