MUJI offers good quality products at reasonable prices, which include a wide variety of stationeries, household items and apparel. Mujirushi Ryohin, MUJI in Japanese, translates as “no-brand quality goods”. The value of the MUJI product is in its effectiveness without the renowned brand or designer name. The essence of MUJI products lies in its simplicity, flexibility and modesty to fit different life styles and individual preferences. MUJI, originally founded in Japan, does not direct its products to be affected by any trends and “isms”, rather does aim to be universally relevant. MUJI products maintain reasonable price levels, not by compromising quality, but by avoiding the waste typical of many products’ manufacturing and distribution in the form of unnecessary functionality, an excess of decoration, and needless packaging.

MUJI U.S.A. LIMITED is the U.S. subsidiary of Ryohin Keikaku Co., Ltd. which is MUJI’s corporate entity incorporated in Japan.

N30 Arrests: Mobilization for Climate Justice vs. the Bank of America Building

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Well the arrestees had already been hauled away by the time I passed by the global warming protest in the Financial District at California and Kearny yesterday. So that left about 50 to contiune the rally until 2:30 PM. By that time, there were more cops in the area than protesters.

The kids don’t like banks funding projects, particpating in carbon exchanges and opposing legislation – thoses are the beefs. Anyway, here’s the big site that explains why they went after BofA on November 30th and here are a few local accounts. The Chevron HQ on Market is the next target so look out on Pearl Harbor Day,

A “parachute” the protesters played with. At least one ‘chutist was a passerby who joined in with glee.

After the arrests, there were cops everywhere, all around the building:
