Bosnia Herzegovina: census, the demography of division and the reality of illiteracy

We the citizens, residents, hosts, to build, sustain, feed our own independent critical thinking as people of the year 2016, we desperately need computer literacy, media literacy and with these produce new information, build a different knowledge, and dismantle once for all the too many deadly lies produced by leading political parties.

While waiting for the last (hopefully) act of the incredible BH-census-soap-opera, which should have is grand final in December this year, 2016, I have as many other, invested my time and read the provisional results published by the BH Agency for Statistics on the eve of the expiring deadline.

I said they could explain to me. “No, adults just get angry and forbid us to watch them” said Hackerberry Finn, my other twin. I had just finish to say “no, I will not, I promise” that they jumped out of their bed, and Hackerberry Finn, took his tablet and find for me ‘Pewdiepie christmas special! (12 days of drugs)‘ a sarcastic weird video by PewDiePie, this super known young-blond-swedish-boy making a lot of money due to his millions and millions of followers (36,498,571).

Cilj sastanka bilo je premošćivanje jaza između feminističkih/LGBTIQ pokreta i pokreta za internet prava, te razmatranje ukrštanja i mogućnosti za partnerstvo.

Globalni sastanak je koristio proces suradnje kako bi postavio pitanje:
