Obviously, corporate America isn't paying attention. Buy Nothing Day, while successful in drawing attention to the corporate hi-jacking of Christmas, did nothing to stop the war in iraq and the continuing occupation and war crimes there. So now we need a direct action that will affect the time of year they are most vulnerable to direct actions-the christmas buying season which accounts for a hefty percentage of corporate America's revenues.
With Buy Nothing Christmas is not to imply LITERALLY buying nothing during that time-just only buying nothing from multinationals. Of course, traditional shopping can still be done through local, independently owned and operated businesses and collectives, etc. Just "Think globally but act locally" being especially applied during the Christmas season. This will be the time to send a LITERAL message of "Peace on earth, good will to all" to war-mongering corporate America-keep up the killing, and we'll kill your profits!
Let's start organizing now! International Buy Nothing Christmas(from corporate America) 2003!
