Black March

March 2012 is the end of the 1st quarter in economic reports worldwide.

Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy, Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a video game. Do not buy a single book or magazine.

Wait the 4 weeks to buy them in April: see the film later, etc. Holding out for just 4 weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media and entertainment companies’ profits for the 1st quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments worldwide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action can give a statement of intent:

“We will not tolerate the Media Industries’ lobbying
for legislation which will censor the internet.”

We need to show the corporations that we own them, not the other way around.

You CAN however support local artists bye visiting their shows, galleries, plays, etc. We do NOT want to bring any damage to smaller artists. Use your common sense when it comes to who you should and should not support this Black March.
