Dealing with garbage during the strike


Originally uploaded by Jeffery Simpson.

1) Malls have garbage cans. Walk around Metrotown, Oakridge or your local mall with a big bag of garbage and empty it as you should. Think of it as giving back to your local merchants, or reverse consumerism.

2) Use your empty beer cans, boxes and what we used to narrowly define as “garbage” to create art. Enter your creations into a found art event and maybe win a prize. Maybe sell your art/garbage to a wealthy art collector. Maybe get yourself a life partner who uses the word “po-mo” a lot.

3) Move to the suburbs. All the usual complaints about living in the city seem kind of quaint now that we’re up to our knees in our own shit, don’t they?

    Reverse consumerism? That’s funny!

    there’s lots of space at city hall where the picketers are. Why not launch your garbage out the window as you drive by?
