Is a Danish grass roots organization working for freedom and justice. They operate in between culture, fashion and politics. In 2006 they produced two t-shirts in support of FARC and PFLP. These organizations are in the EU list of terror organizations and this made the Danish Government charge them with supporting terrorism. Who's a freedom fighter and who's is a terrorist, and who gets to define that is the fundamental question. After being acquitted the first time, the second time they were convicted in the court. F&L is now trying to get the case to the highest Danish court.
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”
