MRPA Comes To Jackson, MS

MRPA flyer Jackson MS final-page-001What are prisons for? Puppet Show!

Tuesday, December 30th @ 7pm

133 Millsaps Avenue, Jackson, MS (next door to the North Midtown Arts Center)

The Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army is excited to come to Mississippi this December! We will be performing a shadow puppet show that chronicles the history of the prison industrial complex from slavery to where it is today. We also have a couple of fun, short opener shows to share with you.

We are using this tour to promote awareness about prison industrial complex and its effects. We also want to share about some of the projects we are working on in North Carolina and are excited to talk to folks from Mississippi about what some of you are doing and what ideas you have. The show is free, though donations are welcome to help us cover our travel costs.

The show is December 30th at 7 p.m. at 133 Millsaps Avenue (next door to the North Midtown Arts Center). Invite your friends!

Also, if you want the chance to voice your opposition to the prison industrial complex, stay tuned for details on a New Years Eve noise demonstration at a local jail or prison.

Countdown to the Really Really Free Festival!

rrfm10-1From Really Free Carrboro

The first fliers are finished announcing the ten-year anniversary of Carrboro’s Really Really Free Market this coming October 4!

Please print and circulate these widely. We are expecting participants from all over the region, making this a day to remember.

In addition to a variety of booths, installations, and the usual cornucopia of free materials, the festival will feature several different tracks of programming: bands, DJs, puppeteers, workshops and discussions, games, and more. If you would like to speak, perform, or organize some other activity, please email carrbororrfm (at) riseup (dot) net.

We have confirmed that the Recyclery will be there fixing bicycles—and giving them away! A licensed massage therapist has signed on, too, alongside other participants. Really really free bicycles, really really free medical care—the sky is the limit. What can you bring?

We will be publishing a preliminary schedule of events and performers shortly. (Alternatively, you could plan to surprise everyone!) There will also be at least two competitions—birthday cakes, and piñatas.

See you this October!

MRPA Performs @ November’s Really Really Free Market

Saturday, November 3rd, 2pm-Carrboro’s World Famous REALLY REALLY FREE MARKET

Carrboro Town Commons @ 2pm- This month will feature the latest performance from The Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army!

Food! Books! Clothing! Music! Haircuts! Puppets! Ballot Box Piñata! Winter Coats! For Free!

Because sharing is more fulfilling than owning

Because corporations would rather the landfills overflow than anyone get anything for free

Because no one should have to do without food, shelter, entertainment, and community

Because life should be a picnic, but it only will be if we make it happen

BECAUSE HELPING EACH OTHER IS BETTER THAN COMPETING OVER WHICH RICH MAN SHOULD RULE OVER US
