WikiLeaks: Bringing the First Amendment to the World » CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Since 2011, from the Arab Spring and Spanish Revolution to Occupy, waves of global uprisings have been erupting as never before. The crisis of representation helped spawn decentralized movements as a manifestation of people’s aspiration to take the reins of their own destinies. For many, the presumption of legitimacy of their governments has been crumbling. What triggered this widespread global crisis?

Guanyem Barcelona: Homage to (a viable?) Utopia

Guanyem Barcelona: Homage to (a viable?) Utopia | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“There was a belief in the revolution and the future, a feeling of having suddenly emerged into an era of equality and freedom. Human beings were trying to behave as human beings and not as cogs in the capitalist machine.” This is how George Orwell described the city of Barcelona during the anarchist revolution of 1936 in his classic Homage to Catalonia. A short-lived dream that was soon to be crushed by Franco’s fascist regime.

Democratic Co-Production Agenda for Care Services in the UK - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Hardly a month goes by without another horror story in the press and media about a disturbing state  of affairs in our health and care services. The prosecutions at Winterbourne View, the massive collapse  and public sector rescue of Southern Cross are symptomatic of a national care service system in crisis.  Is there a democratically accountable ownership model for health and care services that could make a  difference? Quite simply, could the active membership and co­operative governance of workers, service  users, volunteers and family members rebuild public trust in care services and put an end to cruelty and  neglect through an ownership transformation solution by stakeholders that is socially inclusive? These  fundamental questions are the focus of this study.

Good and Cheap: How to Eat Well on $4 a Day | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
As the final project for her Food Studies master's degree at New York University, Leanne Brown decided to write a cookbook for eating healthy on $4 a day -- the amount of money that SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program aka "food stamps") recipients must live on. "I wanted to create a resource that would promote the joy of cooking and show just how delicious and inspiring a cheap meal can be if you cook it yourself," she notes. "Even though food stamps help millions of people across the United States every day, benefits were reduced in November despite rising food prices.

4. Internationale Degrowth-Konferenz | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

There are different understandings of degrowth, depending on the country or context in which the issue is discussed. However, they all share the belief that a growth-based society cannot have a future. Despite all technological innovations and increased efficiency, social injustice and resource consumption are still on the rise. “Green growth” is an illusion.
