November’s Really Really Free Market – an excellent alternative to holiday consumerism- will be happening tomorrow from Noon until 3pm in Monroe Park at the corner of Main and Laurel.

The weather looks great- sunny and 65- so come hang out!

Bring your excess belongings to give away- books, clothes, movies, food, appliances, music, and more! Come discover the treasures of community events and maybe a knick knack you like.

Also, letter writing at the Really Really Free Market:

Come join the Anarchist Black Cross at the monthly Really Really Free Market (on the last Saturday of every month) to write letters to prisoners who will be celebrating their birthdays the following month. We will have a table set up with instructions, addresses and descriptions, envelopes, and people to help answer any questions. rvaabc@gmail.com to get in touch!

We will be using the prisoners’ birthdays posters created monthly by the Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective, and will also have additional prisoner addresses available.
This is a monthly event that will repeat every last saturday of each month.


This event occurs from 12-3pm at the corner of Main and Laurel in Monroe Park. Come on out to support political prisoners and talk to people interested in prison abolition.

Richmond Copwatch will be facilitating a Know Your Rights Workshop at the July Really Really Free Market at 1pm. The Really Really Free Market is at the corner of Main and Laurel streets in Monroe Park. It is always on the last Saturday of every month, so this event will be on July 30th.

This workshop will help participants learn the basics of asserting their rights when dealing with the police. We highly recommend this workshop for EVERYONE. But especially anyone who engages in any level of political protest or demonstrations.This workshop consists of skits that are performed by Copwatch members and then edited by participants from the audience. We encourage participation, questions, and dialogue around the topics covered in the skit. We are not lawyers, but we are able to provide useful information about a lot of legal questions.

For more information about this workshop or Richmond Copwatch you can call 804 303 5449 or email sbhcopwatch@gmail.com

The monthly really Really Free Market happens on the last Saturday of each month from noon until 3pm.  It is an alternative to the capitalist “free market” where everything actually is free. People come to share things they no longer need or want, share skills, share music, etc. You can find out more about the RRFM at rvaradicalendar.blogspot.com
