KAN! Freeshop To Be Launched on Buy Nothing Day

15 November, 2009

On Saturday 28 November, a “Freeshop” stall will be held in Falmouth. Items on the stall will be available for free and donations of old books, clothes and bric a brac are welcome.

The Freeshop is being organised by Kernow Action Now!, a grassroots social and ecological direct action group, to celebrate Buy Nothing Day. Buy Nothing Day is an international day of action against consumerism and corporate exploitation.

Michelle Roberts from KAN! said,

“We’re holding the Freeshop to celebrate and encourage community cooperation and sharing, over consumerism and waste culture. We’d love for you to get involved.”

The Freeshop will be held on Saturday 28 November from 1-3pm outside Woolworths. If successful, similar stalls will be held once a month in different towns around Cornwall.

KAN! to launch Cornwall Free Shop (Help Needed)

16 September, 2009

KAN! are organising a regular Freeshop*/Food Not Bombs** style stall for Cornwall.   The aim is to highlight the ridiculous amounts of food waste in this country and to show the benefits and possibilities of mutual aid and community solidarity.

Our next meeting (7pm, 6 October 2009 @ The Front, Custom House Quay, Falmouth) will focus on developing this project and getting on with the practicalities of making it happen.

If you can help out with this, please come along.

Some help we need:  Surplus food from your vege plot, clothes, toys, etc etc that you no longer want/need.  Much more I’m sure.

Please come along….
