Buy Nothing Day

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?
