The Hugs Campaign T.A.Z.

I found this interesting, especially since I just rediscovered my copy of T.A.Z., by Hakim Bey. I think we often neglect to remember that it only takes a wee bit of energy to make a significant change in the so-called Black Iron Prison around us. Is it really that hard?

Sometimes, a hug is all what we need. Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, A man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.

In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.

As this symbol of human hope spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.


  1. That put me in a good mood just by watching it.

    Great Job, Free Hug guys!

  2. I came across this clip while surfing on you tube back in October and just the other day I saw a TV news clip from either China or Japan where someone is doing the same thing.

    I saw this as an uplifting, because a simple hug can and does make a difference in a person?s day. But when I showed this to my roommate she saw it as creepy and possibly staged, she couldn?t understand why someone would willingly hug a random stranger like that. Oh and I think the song helps make the video/message more effective.
