Prometemos resistir!

Today is my birthday &  my friend gave me that beautiful encouraging song:

Today is also first anniversary of suicide death of Aaron Swartz, young activist who deeply believed in free access to the knowledge. „Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits” as article 27th of Universal Declaration of Human Rights says. But somehow copyright is protected stronger then human rights in our culture.

You should read his Guerilla Open Access Manifesto (translated into Polish by my friend Pawel Stankiewicz: openaccessmanifesto.org).

EFF and other US org made him a patron of  The day of protest against mass surveillance that will take place this February 11th.

Prometemos resistir!

Protest movements: the practices of freedom on the Internet and on the streets – a year after the STOP ACTA.

I’m quite busy recently because of the conference I co-organize. It is about: Protest Movements: the Practices of Freedom on the Internet and on the Streets – a Year after the STOP ACTA

The questions we ask are: What is identity around which protests were organized? What languages ​​appeared during the protest and what practices? What values ​​were considered as endangered? How the collectivity were implemented? What role in the organization of the community and the protests themselves play the Net and social media? Are there common features of various protest movements in Poland, or the resemblance is only superficial?

The Conference is day after tomorrow, so everything is almost done (including this fantastic poster by Joanna Koziej), but my presentation is still not ready.
