Goal: to start creating independent industrial sector, adding sustainable technology and solidarity economy to anarchist governance.
Tool: building long-term manufacturing, service and R&D facility, run by an experimental technological collective.
Opportunity: the need and resources available to provide goods and services to refugee and migrant communities in Europe. Continue reading Towards New Industrial Revolution
This year my traditional Spring Trip leads me to London! I am invited to have a presentation and optionally a workshop on liberatory technology, during a conference held at Kings College (https://how2doit2016.wordpress.com/). Thanks to my friend’s hospitality I will be able to stay longer, so the current plan is that I arrive in the afternoon/evening of 4.04 and leave sometime at 14th. Between these dates I am going to run the conference events, meet friends from the UK (funding permitting) and do other things FB doesn’t need to know about.
So, if you want to meet me there, just join the event and we shall coordinate somehow.
It is going to be FUN!
As usually, the budget is next to nil. As for now, I have fixed:
– Shelter for the whole time I stay, thanks to Z. and his family.
– 50 quid from the organizers of the conference, which will probably cover my Oyster card.
I am definitively short:
~ 120 Euro for the round trip air tickets (RyanAir).
~ 30-50 Euro of reserve for extravagances like a cup of tea.
[Food I hope to get for free — all suggestions will be appreciated]
My kind request to you, folks, is: If you can buy me an air tickets (can be one way — at least TO London), please pm me and we will arrange that.
Other than that, just find the fundraising section here to the right and drop something in. You will be satisfied, I promise.
This text is intended as an opening for the constructive discussion about development of liberatory technology (as coined by Murray Bookchin in his writings) in the realm of European anarchist movement and its kindred spirits.
If there is one single question this text struggles to answer, it is „How to develop a technological component of a free society, to support prefiguration of confederated and freedom-oriented communities?”
If there is one single goal of the travel that begins with this text, it is formation of a Special Interest Group to discuss and coordinate all technology developments done by its members, within the anarchist movement and beyond it.
