Photojournalist traveling to Europe in May.
Posted March 17th, 2013 - 3:20 pm by from Laja, Bolivia (Permalink)
I will be traveling to Paris next May. I'm a photojournalist working for revoluciontrespuntocero.com and I'm looking for stories about people resisting capitalism: their ways of organizing, life stories of succesful experiences, etc.
I will be traveling to Notre Dame de Landes but I would certainly use some suggestions of stories in the paris area.
I'll also be needing some accomodation and, you bet, the aid of a translator wouldn't be a bad idea.

¡Muchas gracias! Eso es muchísima información que será útil.
Estoy de acuerdo en que el idioma será una barrera pero también creo que no será una barrera que no se pueda superar!
Muchas gracias por la información y el contacto.

Hola Rodrigo,

Tu fotoreportaje de "people resisting capitalism" me llama la atencion. Cuentame más!
Yo tambien soy fotografa aunque no vivo de ello.
Soy española y vivo en Paris, desafortunadamente no puedo ofrecerte alhojamiento pero podria estar bien encontrarse y que me cuentes un poco más tu proyecto.

Bueno, espero leerte.

Hola María.
Revolución TresPuntoCero es un medio de comunicación que depende de Puente Sur, una agencia de noticias que opera en Latinoamérica.
La agencia tiene como idea central dar voz a aquellos que generalmente no la tienen y mostrar formas diferentes de habitar y construir el mundo. En este contexto voy a Europa a localizar algunos puntos de encuentro entre las sociedades civiles de tu continente y el mío.
En Europa hay muestras de descontento cada vez más grandes y más peligrosas para la gente y creemos que mantenernos en contacto y compartir experiencias puede ser bueno...
Esa sería la idea detrás de los trabajos. Si conoces algún buen ejemplo en Paris o en España sería padrísimo que pudieses contarme a ver si puedo llegar a atestiguar eso o crear algo alr especto. Creo que es una gran oportunidad.
Y claro, podemos encontrarnos en París, siempre es buena idea ir tejiendo redes de personas.
Te mando muchos saludos.

Hello Rodrigo,

This looks like a really nice project! I don't have any precise idea for the moment but I'll think of more. Are you interested in squats for instance? You can find a list here: http://paris.intersquat.org/index.php/les-squats-ouverts.
I work for an NGO, in a way trying to fight capitalism the way we can, at the European level (www.euroalter.com), I'd be happy telling you a bit more if you're interested. Or otherwise meeting you and learn about what you've seen and who you've met! As for translation, I speak French (being French), but no Spanish, so I could only help you by translating into English.

Let me know when you come!

Hello! Thank you very much for the feedback.
I've been reading a lot these days about what can be researched and it seems, luckily, there are a lot of examples of people getting organized. That is wonderful.
I'm very interested in "European Alternatives" I would certainly like to know more about the organization. It would be nice if I could visit your headquarters and getting to interview you or some of your friends. I found the idea of transcending the borders of European countries very interesting. Actually, I liked a lot your definition of Europe as "not primarily a geographical space: it is a process and a pursuit". It sounds exaclty what I'm looking for.
So, could you tell me abit more on how you operate, if you are working on certain specific campaigns and the like?
It would be great if I could talk to you.
I'll be in Paris since May 1th.
Thank you!

Hi Rodrigo,

I've just met a girl this morning doing a bit of a similar project to yours, here's her blog: http://protestinfrance.tumblr.com/.
I'd be happy to let you know more. What dates will you be in Paris?

Well I have been talking to some people in NDDL. They are having a big rally in May 11th and it would be great to attend.
I can give you all the details via private message (or whatever it is called in Couchsurfing) if you like :-)

Hey! I'll be following that project... It looks like she's into something very interesting. Thanks for the recomendation :-)
I'll be in paris from April 29 to something around May 11. Then, I'll be back in July.
That's only if I can get somewhere to stay, haha
Thank you!
