Errekaleor Bizirik – Argi izpiak iluntasunean – A little light in the darkness

Errekaleor Bizirik is a neighborhood and project in which we live in a community based on the principles of self-management and self-determination (autogestion) in Gasteiz, Basque Country. We are creating an alternative way of living in which we take an active part in the creation of our own lives and society. As a part of this process, we are trying to achieve energy sovereignty in our neighborhood, creating an environmentally friendly and off-the-grid electrical system that will provide for all of our homes and communal spaces. We want to turn Errekaleor into a self-sufficient island of renewable energy that has no need for corrupt and exploitative private electrical companies like Iberdrola.

Feed the Revolution – Ecological Fertilizer, official project of Rojava – Help Fix the Food Problem

The economy of Rojava, or Syrian Kurdistan, is mainly based on wheat agriculture.
Due to the embargo imposed by Turkey, this year only 10% of the fertilizer needed. Amidst the constant attacks from jihadist groups, Rojava faces a great famine.
Rojava is the only effective force against ISIS, and it hosts half a million Syrian refugees. It is also the heart of the feminist and ecological revolution in the middle east.
We are making organic fertilizer to increase Rojava’s independence and walk towards our goal of 100% organic agriculture.
For years Rojava has stood with the world against terror and fascism. Now it is your turn to stand with Rojava.
