Saturday November 26th is Buy Nothing Day (UK). It's a day where you challenge yourself, your family and friends to switch off from shopping and tune into life. The rules are simple, for 24 hours you will detox from shopping and anyone can take part provided they spend a day without spending!

Everything we buy has an impact on the environment, Buy Nothing Day highlights the environmental and ethical consequences of consumerism. The developed countries - only 20% of the world population are consuming over 80% of the earth's natural resources, causing a disproportionate level of environmental damage, and an unfair distribution of wealth.

Every major party remains committed to austerity so the Peoples Assembly Against Austerity is calling a major national demonstration & festival just weeks after the election to send a clear message to the new government; we demand an alternative to austerity and to policies that only benefit those at the top.

We'll be assembling the demonstration in the heart of the City of London right on the doorstep of the people who created the crisis, to demand that they should pay for the crisis and not the majority who had nothing to do with it.
