Slussen protests

Spent a couple of hours at Slussen in Stockholm today, to capture some of the protest messages on the walls of Blå Bodarna (”Blue Stalls” – a walk tunnel that used to house an array of shops, of which only two or three are left, and soon closing). Handwritten messages are covering the tiled walls, protesting against the building plans for New Slussen.

I only saw one voice positive to the City´s glossy new vision of this place. I guess those who like the plans are counting on the City to go ahead with their plans – no need to go out and demonstrate your point of view.

    Amusante cette double page, même si les revendications de ces gens – que je ne comprends pas – ont l’air sérieuses.

  2. Love this spread Nina. Such a shame the protest will be ignored.

    • Thanks Sue. It probably will be ignored (I think, sadly). But they haven´t given up just yet, the slow mills of bureaucracy are still turning, and all the official decisions have not passed, so you never know. On the other hand, many people do NOT like the old Slussen, and are glad to see it go…
