n. Black Friday, in the United States,the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally marked by early morning sales accompanied by irrational violence at malls
and shopping centers as bargain seekers do whatever they can to get what
they want. Anticapitalists have dubbed
Black Friday "Buy Nothing
Day", and have attempted to counter the excessive consumption of the day by leafletting against the same sales, creating mock sales and coupons, organizing boycotts, and generally attempting to draw attention
to the plight of the poor in the U.S. and around
the world in contrast.
