If it had not been for the incredible diversity of people and their experiences, I am sure that Occupy Stockholm had not lasted to become the "longest lasting" demonstration or occupation in the history of Sweden.
Definitely not past the autumn that included two hurricanes clashing over the town so that "proper houses" were demolished but our tents lasted and very unlikely during the next exceptionally cold winter.

Specifically, one participant indigenous of the Chiapas had experience from the "Zapatista Army of National Liberation" guerrilla and several Kurd refugees that had been "peshmerga" (liberation militia) ensured the tents survived what even the cops later declared was incredible.
Diversity is humanity's "survival of the fittest". :-)

An official report commissioned by the Dutch government has severely criticised Microsoft Office for violating its users' privacy:

privacycompany.eu/en/impact-as

"Microsoft systematically collects data on a large scale ... Covertly, without informing people. Microsoft does not offer any choice ... or possibility to switch off the collection, or ability to see what data are collected"

I've added a new section to switching.social:

In 2014, when Sierra Leone was hit by the Ebola outbreak, three local software developers kept the country's infrastructure working by rewriting it to #FLOSS. They saved hundreds of thousands lives when companies like Google and IBM backed off, calling the project too risky.

@strypey Apart from Kevin"s work, I'd recommend taking a look at @Gin 's initial work (beyond labels and branding) on the ways that genuinely progressive organisations aware of the limitations of capital can tell who are compatible organisations to cooperate with. (And which aren't) Hopefully a first deliverable of many.

ICYMI: Here is a link to "Negative Monument," a speculative proposal, practical intervention, and anti-monumental gesture.

The project is an open invitation to engage in the participatory yet imperceptible negation of a monument: bit.ly/2E2r7I2
