Really Really Free Market Short Report

30 Aug

Just a short report on the RRFM that happened recently.  It went on great! Friends got together and help setting up and clean the space the night before. They donated clothes, kitchen utensils, toys, curtains, shoes etc. Banners were hung in front of the space to let people know of the event. Curious passer-by went in to check out the stuff given away.  People who came were informed by the flyers which was distributed around the area. At which one of the folk who got to know of the event via a flyer that was voluntarily  translated to Mandarin by supporting folk from the Chinese community in the vicinity.  Our neighbors came and took clothes for their Hari Raya celebration attire and gave away some of their own old clothes as well! People from the nearby shops came to greet and get to know the people at the space. A few children and teenagers had a session of jamming some music after they pick their stuff.  Most who came were from the lower class  including the immigrant workers.  They love the RRFM idea and glad that Gudang organised it.

Thanks for those who came and make the event happened! See you again at the next RRFM (maybe this Oct).

We welcome new ideas and skills to make RRFM more fun.

17 Aug

Really Really Free Markets (RRFMs) are completely free, public events where neighbors, friends and family come together in the spirit of community building, sustainability and anti-consumerism. The idea is to give away no longer needed items, find new treasures, bring/eat good food and socialize with fellow members of our community. Bring usable items, food, skills and talents to give for the sake of giving at Gudang Noisy Community Space on 22nd August 2010. See you there!

“Have you ever picked up something you found on the sidewalk? Or saved your neighbor from throwing away something useful?

A Really Really Free Market is like a potluck for whatever you want to give or take away. Have you ever brought one dish to a potluck and gone away with a full belly and a balanced meal? Everybody brings something and goes away with more.

We all have skills, ideas, objects, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, and many other things to share. If we bring them all together at the Really Really Free Market, we can provide more balanced and full lives for everyone.

Please do contact us at these numbers; 012-7968504, 012-9702734 to drop off your donation at our place anytime. Or to inform your participation during the RRFM for skill sharing etc.

Ahad, 18 Julai 2010 – EARTHLINGS SCREENING/VEGAN POTLUCK/DISCUSSION

11 Jul

We would like to invite you to share your vegan meals or drinks. Eventhough we recognize that not many people are vegans, but it would be so awesome to be creative and create a delicious dish that involves non-animal ingredients. It’ll be like an adventure as well as a rewarding experience. Plus we can munch together before, during and after the screening.

EARTHLINGS is an award-winning documentary film about the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment and medical research. Considered the most persuasive documentary ever made, EARTHLINGS is nicknamed “the Vegan maker” for its sensitive footage shot at animal shelters, pet stores, puppy mills, factory farms, slaughterhouses, the leather and fur trades, sporting events, circuses and research labs. The film is narrated by Academy Award® nominee Joaquin Phoenix and features music by platinum-selling recording artist Moby. Initially ignored by distributors, today EARTHLINGS is considered the definitive animal rights film by organizations around the world. “Of all the films I have ever made, this is the one that gets people talking the most,” said Phoenix. “For every one person who sees EARTHLINGS, they will tell three.”

Sesi Mengemas Ruang Gudang Noisy

12 May

Pada Sabtu & Ahad  (8-9/10)  telah berlangsungnya sesi bergotong royong bersama geng Coathangers Revolt untuk membersihkan ruang Gudang Noisy. Seperti yang  dinyatakan didalam Manifesto, ruang ini akan digunakan untuk menjalankan aktiviti komuniti dimasa akan datang jadi kenalah bersih sikit. (^_^)

Beberapa hari yang lalu, rakan-rakan yang tinggal berdekatan dengan lokasi gudang ini telah mula mengemas sedikit sebanyak diruangan dapur dimana terdapat banyak sampah hasil buangan yang diyakini mahu dikitar semula spt. botol plastik dan kaca, tin minuman, dan bekas spray can. Kami mengasingkan bahan-bahan ini untuk dijual nanti. Kumpul duit untuk aktiviti BBQ nanti (Gudang Warming). Serius banyak serangga yang menghuni disini.. Cik T pun ada.

Kerja-kerja pembaikipulihan dilakukan dahulu seperti memasang faucets (kepala paip) di sinki dan di tandas. Mujur Rat meminjamkan gergaji elektrik, dapatlah kami potong plywood untuk dijadikan para rak besi dibelakang sebagai tempat meletak barang-barang. Alat-alatan yang diperlukan untuk membantu kerja pembersihan juga telah dibeli. Segala transaksi pembelian telah dicatatkan didalam page CashFlow bagi memastikan ketelusan. Tedapat juga beberapa alat yang kami perlukan seperti driller dsbnya (akan di-update nanti senarai alatan yang diperlukan). Kami berharap dapat dipinjamkan atau didonasi dari rakan-rakan yang membaca ini. Tolong ye…

Pada hari Ahad, kami disajikan dengan nasi+beehun bersama sup tomyam vegan yang dibawa oleh Nollie dan Shah. Sebelum berkerja kena recharge tenaga dulu.  Maka bermulalah sesi mengemas, menyapu, menghilangkan habuk dan sawang, dan mengecat dinding.  Dinding yang putih akan dilakar mural cerita sejarah. Dinding hitam akan diconteng dengan message menggunakan spray warna cerah atau kapur. Maaf kepada teman-teman yang telah menyumbangkan ekspresi personal anda di ruangan ini sebelum ini kerana kami terpaksa padam tanda anda. Ini adalah suatu permulaan untuk lebih banyak ekspresi baru.

Dipintu belakang gudang ini terdapat sebuah kuil yang memelihara anjing-anjing liar. Kelihatan seperti garang tetapi hanya apabila bersama penjaga mereka, seorang makcik yang usianya lebih 50 tahun. Mungkin mereka menyalak tanda melindungi penjaga mereka itu. Kami berkata sesama sendiri, jika kami memberi makanan kepada mereka pasti mereka baik dengan kami sekaligus dapat menjadi pengawal ruang masuk Gudang ini. Jalan dibelakang ini sunyi. Kebanyakannya dilalui oleh cyclist dari kawasan ini, dan pejalan kaki (ramai foreign workers, budak sekolah dan makcik-makcik). Jadinya tidak sibuk dan bising seperti dijalan utama didepan. Ini memudahkan kerja mengemas. Tak havoc! Ditambah lagi dengan udara segar yang dihasilkan oleh kebun sayuran bersebelahan kuil tersebut.  Nyaman~ (ianya dijadikan satu inspirasi untuk rakan-rakan yang bercadang untuk bercucuk tanam nanti)

Ruangan ini diharapkan dapat dikunjungi oleh masyarakat setempat dan rakan-rakan untuk menjadikannya suatu tempat yang mempunyai fungsi yang pelbagai dan tak akan sunyi dari aktiviti pada hari biasa atau hujung minggu. Kami amat memerlukan tenaga kerja untuk merealisasikan visi ini. Kepada rakan yang berkemahiran seperti bertukang, amatlah dialu-alukan untuk berpartisipasi dalam usaha ini.

Terima kasih kepada geng Coathangers Revolt (Kid, Niesa, Nollie, Shah) Mirdza, Avroco, Rat, Eizzat, yang hadir pada hari Ahad lepas untuk bersama membantu gotong royong ini.

Sesi seterusnya adalah pada 15 & 16 May (Sabtu & Ahad). Dijemput rakan-rakan untuk datang tolong.

Run comrade, run! The old world is behind you!
