Since I wrote this on Facebook it turned out that the Macedonian government made the smart decision to not do the dirty work of the EU but instead (like Greece) let all refugees pass through the border (since everyone knew they didn’t want to settle in Macedonia, or for that matter in Greece) but wanted to continue to pass borders towards the center of Europe. This just makes the activists in Berlin that gives practical support to the refugees so much more hopeful.
The mother of all cool street artists, Mr Banksy himself, still living in anonymity and escaping “justice”, has succeeded to overdo himself and made a theme park, open to everyone (although visitors will be less entertained than chocked): “Dismaland”, an ironic and truer version to social reality than the big lie of the Western World created in Disneyland. Banksy is simply brilliant and one of the major political activists of our time. Check it out!
This is a humours political stunt of some kind. It is done in Brazil and is directed against those that tend to park on parking lots reserved for disabled people.

A year ago Majken Jul Sörensen defended her dissertation at the University of Wollongong with the PhD “Humours Political Stunts”. It is an excellent analysis of the role of humour in resistance, a book a very much recommend. It is now available through the publishing house Irene that specialises in literature on nonviolent activism and resistance research. Check it out!
