26 November 2011 - 9:00am

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.

The film begins at a meeting in August 2002 where a social activist, Simon Petrov, reads the sentence dictated by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ordering the Venezuelan state to compensate the relatives of the victims of the 27 February 1989 riots.
