Tbilisi municipal government is selling off community parks to developers, an action that will displace community groups and leave the city with fewer places for children to play. The Guerilla Gardening activists took over a City Hall Building and turned it into a Picnic spot. Their message is “Okay, if you can kick us out of our parks, then we can kick you out of your workplace.” Produced by Miro Shengelaia
great activities indeed!
I am always glad to see grassroots initiatives taking their future into their on hands. I also did a short interview with them about a month ago.
been trying to reach them…
Hi, thanks for sharing Nino! yup no surprises here, just another brick in the wall so to speak
Even before Spot the Future started I’ve been trying to get in touch with the folks behind Guerrilla Gardening for an inside view and detailed account of how they managed to mobilize people..Are you involved in this Nino? Should we invite them to Monday’s workshop at Frontline? By the way are you yourself coming? hope to meet you in person
I asked them several times, and they said yes, but they are very busy with their activism and probably haven’t found the time yet to become active on the platform. I will try again today.
this is awesome
has anyone responded to this movment or they are still on the battle for their community parks
On the platform at last
Nick from Guerilla Gardening here.
I’m finally on the platform. Sorry for a huge delay with joining.
Glad to have you on the platform and at the workshop, your work is truly inspiring @firstname.lastname@example.org
