Occupy Boise Opens FREE! Market, Not 'Free Market'

Posted By on Mon, Oct 31, 2011 at 11:08 AM

Boise's arm of the nationwide "Occupy" movement, Occupy Boise, turned downtown's Capitol Park into an open-air bazaar for the majority of Saturday, Oct. 29. People brought goods to the market, but with one catch: nothing could be sold or bought. Bring a pair of pants, and leave with a VHS movie, or vice versa.

Groups painted zombie faces, Food Not Bombs provided bread, veggies and meals for all, another group led an at-will drum circle with makeshift instruments, and the Occupy Boise legal team led know-your-rights training.

The group has plans to discuss a possible encampment more closely related to their Wall Street counterpart, slated for the Monday, Oct. 31 general assembly.
