You are listening to Rustbelt Radio, the Pittsburgh Independent Media Center's bi-weekly review of news overlooked by the corporate media. We turn now to other independent news from beyond Western Pennsylvania.
Here is Pennsylvania journalist and political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal with a piece on the art that happens within prison walls
Holidays, while often being times for people to slow down and spend time with loved ones, they also jog memories of massive money spending. In preparation in for some upcoming local events that deal with consumerism and ethically produced and purchased goods, we are sharing a piece on Uprising Radio about consumerism around this time of year and the alternative.
That was the Uprising Radio from November 30th on Local Fair Trade, Conscious Alternatives To Corporate Shopping. You can listen to more Uprising Radio segments at uprisingradio.org.
The first upcoming local event is Women Building a Sustainable Future at the Carnegie Museum in Oakland on December 6th from 6-7:30 pm. This event is complimentary to the current exhibition entitled "Empowering Women: Artisan Cooperatives That Transform Communities" which [quote] explores the work of cooperative enterprises in ten countries [end quote]. On December 6th there will be a roundtable and discussion about women emphasizing green practices in art, construction, planning, and building. Featured participants are Natalie DeRiso of Construction Junction, Janel Everly from Green Building Alliance, Vanessa German who is a Visual and Performance Artist, Sara Innamorato from Growth Through Energy & Community Health (GTECH) Strategies and Erika Johnson of Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse.
Then Saturday, December 8th is the 9th annual Handmade Arcade. As (quote) Pittsburgh’s first and largest independent craft fair...The annual Handmade Arcade was created to give grassroots, independent crafters an opportunity to show and sell their wares, and to provide an alternative to traditional craft and art fairs (end quote). Handmade Arcade will be happening from 11 am til 7 pm, December 8th, at the David Lawrence Convention Center Downtown.
