In preparation for the Christmas season, we’re going to be talking about Buy Nothing Day. It’s a protest against consumerism that occurred on Black Friday (Friday, November 28th).
The day was started by the Canadian magazine « Ad Busters ». We’re going to watch an older interview with Darren Fleet, a Canadian journalist and an editor at Ad Busters.
As you watch the video try to answer these questions:
According to Fleet:
– What does Black Friday represent?
– Do we need consumerism?
