And more summer readings from the Transversal web journal:
"The articles in this issue of the web journal link these new universalism debates with an analysis of specific examples, such as the Zapatist fight for liberation under the motto “Everything for everyone!”, the movement of the French intermittents, the revolutionary battles of the 18th century in San Domingo/Haiti, or feminist politics of friendship."
For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.
We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
