Today was the boat/float race from the harbor in San Sebastian to the beach. The reason people do it, as far as ive been told, is because of the fun.
A week long festival starting in San Sebastian today. Alot of cool stuff happening.
during my trip to Rome i stumbled over this movement that called them self “Dragon”. I spoke a lot with one of the demonstrators, Marzio, and in the end he invited me to join their movement and move in to a camp they had created in Piazza S. Croce in Gerusalemme. i spent nearly two weeks there occupying my own little square in a two man tent.
(my local number in Italy is: 3888 179 703)
the Dragons, as they call them self, are warming up for the big international demonstration that will take place at via Repubblica on this saturday (15 October). It’s estimated that almost 150 000 people will join up outside piazza repubblica, so it will be interesting to see how it goes.
they didn’t want to publish this in dagsavisen, so i’ll just publish them myself. i thought they were good enough to get some attention.
i was sitting at oslo university college when i suddenly heard a loud roar and the building started shaking. sirens was soon to follow so i quickly understood that something serious was happening, tough, i never would have guessed what the day had in store. i got to the site about 45 mins later and the police had already closed down a large area around the site where the car bomb had gone of. it wasn’t until now i understood that this wasn’t an accident and the seriousness started to show itself. i was still far away from the actual site, but the damage around where massive. people where walking around with tears in their eyes.
i just can’t get the hang of this blogging business. it’s such a hassle updating it all the time, but i posted some PICTURES from my easter vacation in the picture section. not much, but it’s something.
and to celebrate a new beginning: here is a little better preview of my story on the squatters i lived with in the netherlands.
hope you like it!
