Omnia map 2
As part of the campaign AGAINST the harmful legislative changes brought on by the new Water Act, we prepared an updated map of OMNIA polling stations for all those who wanted to vote outside their place of residence on the day of the referendum. The guide is presented in the form of an interactive map that makes it easy to locate the nearest OMNIA polling station and forward one’s intention to vote elsewhere to the National Electoral Commission. Because just about every drop in the ocean counts towards a winning goal!
Promise Made = Debt Unpaid
In partnership with Oštro, Center za preiskovalno novinarstvo v jadranski regiji, we created the first web platform to track the status of political promises in Slovenia. Politicians prefer making promises to keeping them and, if there is nobody around to call them accountable, all the promises, albeit promising, turn out to be completely empty. Our platform keeps track of a selection of political promises from the coalition agreement, analysing the activities behind them and informing the public on their progress. Because we believe in the idea of political accountability!
I want to vote NO and protect drinking water, but …
We dedicated all available resources to campaigning against the new Water Act, which introduced environmentally unacceptable provision, and was challenged by the civil society at a referendum. Since the referendum was called in the middle of summer when many people are away for holidays, we prepared an interactive guide based on our open source Cefizelj tool. The simple web application listed all the ways people could vote if they were away on the day of the referendum or the polling station was not accessible to them.
Less than fair
On a cold December evening, social networks were flooded with outraged posts reacting to a memo from Hofer banning homeless people from selling their newspaper in front of its outlets. In doing so, they communicated to an already vulnerable social group that they are unwanted and should become invisible – just to provide their customers a holiday shopping experience without any bad conscience. We strongly oppose this kind of segregation, so called on the public to boycott Hofer and help the homeless.
