Let’s take a day that is all about consumption and make it our own, and let’s make it loud and clear that we will not support the corporations that destroyed our economy and undermined our Republic.Instead of a “Buy Nothing Day” we’ll have a “Buy Local Day.” Instead of buying a bunch of useless crap, let’s instead go out and help the poor. Volunteer at soup kitchens and host toy drives and do the other charitable things that the government refuses to do. A season of giving instead of a season of buying.

***SIGN PETITION: ACLU: Stop excessive police force in Oakland

Tear Gas. Rubber Bullets. Bean Bag Guns. Flash Grenades.

Reports keep coming in of extreme force by Oakland Police in dealing with Occupy demonstrations. As tensions rise in the Occupy movements in Oakland and around the state and the nation, we need to let police departments know that excessive force is not acceptable.

What happened in Oakland impacts all of us
