“You are looking at pictures of a house I built for our family in Wales. It was built by myself and my father in law with help from passers by and visiting friends. 4 months after starting we were moved in and cosy. I estimate 1000-1500 man hours and £3000 put in to this point. Not really so much in house buying terms (roughly £60/sq m excluding labour).
The house was built with maximum regard for the environment and by reciprocation gives us a unique opportunity to live close to nature. Being your own (have a go) architect is a lot of fun and allows you to create and enjoy something which is part of yourself and the land rather than, at worst, a mass produced box designed for maximum profit and convenience of the construction industry. Building from natural materials does away with producers profits and the cocktail of carcinogenic poisons that fill most modern buildings”.
Remember Bahrain? No? Neither does the world…. Fuck the Khalifa regime. Fuck the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its likes. Fuck those that continue to spread sectarian hatred and violence. But most of all, FUCK the activist that pick and choose causes. Silence is a war crime.
