Join the Wingnut Anarchist Collective for a winter potluck and gift exchange.
Everyone should bring a dish or non alcoholic beverahe to share, and 1 gift for the exchange. The gift can be new or used or ephemeral, like telling someone a story, playing them a song, or teaching them a skill. But please dont buy the gift new- regift or thrift or dumpster etc. Screw capitalism, lets not give those jerks anymore of our money for this event. We can share friendship and love without money honey.
This is from our friend who had the idea for this event originally :
” as to the trade day idea,here goes!

Most folks have never know the “joys of swapping stuff”,having been brought up in a cash/debit/credit structure society in the U.S. .A lot of the world ,however,still does a great deal of basic day to day economic function on barter.What I would propose is that the [Friday] after christmas the Wingnut host a sort of trade gathering for folks that want to try something different . Doesn’t matter what you have to trade,just no cash/bitcoins/etc. ,make it something that you can bring and show that there is more to trading than just doing a set of numbers. Skills,stories,materials to make things,books,tools,ideas,geegaws and gimcracks!Trading has a LOOONNNGGG history of being the way that ideas got passed around since our ancestors first started walking out of southern Africa,and it sure would be neat to see how some of you younguns do in the “call and response” test that is at the core of it all.So, will you take up a skillset that can keep you from starving and aid in your travels no matter where you are and what language the locals speak?Could be fun,and always is an adventure!”

All ages and sober event!!!
Friday December 26 from 7pm – midnight

There is a scheduled Land Use meeting at City Hall on Tuesday February 18th at 3pm, where the proposal for the privatization of Monroe Park will be presented by Alice Massey.

Please come out with friends, signs, and voices to be heard. It is imperative for the freedom of citizens of Richmond, the houseless, low income, radical social movements, and spontaneous events that we STOP the City from leasing Monroe Park to any private party, and STOP there from ever being a permit process or fee for holding events in our public commons.

Dear Neighbor,

We are the Wingnut Anarchist Collective, and we wanted to get in touch about a program we are hoping to bring to Southern Barton Heights starting this Spring. The event we want to organize is called a Really Really Free Market. We have been involved in a Really Really Free Market that happens on a monthly basis in Monroe park for 3 years now. We have decided to focus more of our efforts on Southern Barton Heights, and want to try a Really Really Free Market here.

A Really Really Free Market (RRFM) is a community gathering where participants bring, and give away absolutely free, andy usuable items, skills, ideas, talents, friendship, excitement, discussion, games and many other things that we as a community can come together and share. A RRFM is a 100% free and non-commercial event, creating a gift economy as an alternative to the normal way of buying and selling.

Our plan is to have the first Southern Barton Heights Really Really Free Market on Saturday April 21st from 12 noon until 3pm in Yancey Street Park at the corner of Poe St. and North Ave. Earth Day is the following day, which makes it an extra approporiate day to encourage re-using and re-cycling of belongings instead of throwing away and buying new.

If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved with, we’d love to have your help.

- If you have any ideas for things you’d like to see at the Really Really Free Market, get in touch with us.

- Contribute something to the free market, spare stuff that you have around your house or work, some kind of entertainment, or a skill that you’d like to share with your community.

-Tell your friends about this thing, the more people who show up the better it’s gonna be.

Love,

The Wingnut
