Occupy Wall Street To Host Holiday Bazaar & Skill Share

While the rest of the world scurries to waste its hard-earned money on low-quality gifts sold by multi-national corporations, Occupy Wall Street will embrace the real spirit of the season: sharing.

Although the central occupation at Zuccotti Park has been unjustly evicted by Mayor Bloomberg, the movement still thrives and grows in New York City.

On December 18th, OWS will host a collaborative event to foster community and demonstrate the viability of alternative currency economies. The Holiday Bazaar and Skill Share event is open to all who would like to learn more about the OWS movement, support local artisans and crafters, explore alternative currencies, and pick up a new skill along the way.

Attendees will choose from a variety of workshops, in addition to enjoying live music, movies, and a holiday dinner provided by the Occupy Wall Street Kitchen.

Check out the poster below for more details:

If you can’t attend the bazaar, but would like to support the OWS Sustainability Working Group’s goal of educating the public about alternative economies, please consider donating to their crowdfunding campaign.

Wonderful! And what's even more wonderful? Despite the cold, despite the military disguised as policemen attacking, despite the lack of support from Obama, and other political "leaders", OWS is continuing to grow and in more and more creative ways. OWS is beautiful!!!

Spread the protest.

Corporations have over-powered our government which now believes that out-sourcing and off-shoring of U.S. jobs is inevitable and necessary with expectations that the middle class should fall on their swords. It is the underlying cause of the financial collapse and borders on national security with the loss of our middle class tax base. Yet, this nation does nothing, not even demand it be restricted by whatever method. International businesses are doing the UN-AMERICAN activity of destroying U.S. salaries, U.S. businesses that hire in the U.S., and as an end result, destroying the U.S. marketplace while still demanding BUSINESS ENTITLEMENTS and protections for themselves.

Infrastructure spending and tax breaks will not replace enough jobs to keep up with the hemorrhaging loss of U.S. jobs from out-sourcing over seas. Neither party will do anything about it unless we begin grass roots efforts to protest out-sourcing and off-shoring of U.S. jobs. If nothing is done we will deserve what we get and it will get a lot worse before it gets better.
