Aspudden public bath - part II

I wrote about Aspudden public bath here in Stockholm in an earlier post. In short, the local politicians want to tear it down, most of the people in Aspudden don´t.

A little update on the latest development: Since the 28th of September the bath has been occupied by people living in Aspudden, to guard the building from destruction. The pool is empty - a sad sight - but the bath is very much alive anyway. All kinds of folks from the neighborhood - adults, teenagers, children, parents, elderly - are there all day round. The door is open, the coffee is hot, and people come visit to show their support.

We´ll see what happens, so far the politicians have been very quiet.

This is no. 3 of five double posts, posted both here and on my new website/blog, Please update your links and bookmarks and come on over! After these five double posts there will be no more new posts here.
