Consumer confidence has been low since September 11. A quick war against
Iraq was supposed to be the only way to restore that confidence - and
our happiness. But is shopping our salvation? Do we have a choice? The
world was shocked when young protesters in Seattle, Genoa, and Gothenburg
attacked shop windows, cars, and banks. Surplus starts during the chaotic
days of the G8 summit in Genoa and sets off on a world journey seeking
the answer to another question: why?
Alice in Wonderland or Who is Guy Debord?

Many people in the world are worried about the state of Democracy in
America. Adopt an American is an email and web-based cultural exchange
program in which Europeans or other citizens of the world may interact
with an American citizen in order to open lines of communication. By
initializing a cross-continental conversation and providing a nurturing
contact overseas, it is the hope of the Save America Foundation that
dialogue will further the development of democratic and peaceful practices
in the United States.
More conversations and contact will only benefit the world in these
times of militarism, fear and war. Adopt an American will be a lifeline
and communication enabler that allows personal stories to be shared
along with information about the state of American politics and culture.
Pm Live performance by SMALL BATHROOM FIRE!!! A very special treat.
