So since we are going to definitely lose Net Neutrality since nothing people say matters and the rulers are blindly evil - do you think we could push this into a fight for municipal broadband with direct democratic control? Can’t be fucked by Comcast if we create our own fiber-optic internet that is controlled by the people.

Tianjin Binhai Library by MVRDV + Tianjin Urban Planning and Design Institute

MVRDV in collaboration with local architects TUPDI has completed the Tianjin Binhai Library, a 33,700m2 cultural centre featuring a luminous spherical auditorium around which floor-to-ceiling bookcases cascade. The undulating bookshelf is the building’s main spatial device, and is used both to frame the space and to create stairs, seating, the layered ceiling and even louvres on the façade. Tianjin Binhai Library was designed and built in a record-breaking time of only three years due to a tight schedule imposed by the local municipality. Next to many media rooms it offers space for 1,2 million books.

Två av de tio illustrationerna jag gjorde för ett utbildningsmaterial om normkritik och HBTQ för Uppsala kommun, utvecklat tillsammans med Antidiskrimineringsbyrån och RFSL.

Two of the ten illustrations I made for education material about LGBTQ and critique of harmful norms. The project was made for the municipality of Uppsala in Sweden who developed the education along with Antidiskrimineringsbyrån (swedish organization agains discrimination) and RFSL (swedish organisation about LGBTQ matters)

The first illustration shows a good safe space where people’s needs are respected. The second one how people can get excluded from spaces. Sometimes the people who organize are well-meaning and not even aware, which makes education on these matters extremely important.

You may have seen reports about U.S.-backed forces liberating the city of Raqqa from Daesh. What no one has talked about is that those forces are the YPG/J, whom I’m writing a significant portion of my thesis on.

The ecologically sustainable, feminist, and democratic movement in Rojava [N. Syria], inspired by the imprisoned Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan, and his transition from Marxist-Leninism to democratic confederalism in a tradition similar to the Zapatistas in Chiapas and based on theories on social ecology and libertarian municipalism of the late Murray Bookchin, should seriously be given more credit and celebrated more.

Biji Kurdistan, Rojava, Raqqa!
