Adbusters are an international group of social activists employing creative resistance against, amongst other things, 'consumer culture and the machine that drives it'.
Their reclaiming urban space campaign caught my eye, as the issue is something citizens begin to grapple with here in Singapore, even as pedestrians and cyclists get killed on our roads. And young students who get killed make a significant impact ti public consciousness. Let's hope it changes things.
Interestingly, Juggi, the speaker I positioned for the last word during the Biodiversity of Singapore Symposium to wake the audience up to completely different strategies in nature conservation, actually covered aspects of this approach. He's given me permission to distribute his talk on CD and I hope to do that by year-end.
