Safer Social Network: Refugee Support Network

Safer Social Network

This is a self-organised social network for everyone involved in supporting refugees in Europe and beyond.

We believe the refugee issues are going to be serious political and legal struggle, so discussing everything on Facebook is a serious danger. There is no real privacy there and profiles or groups can be closed down at a whim of any government, corporation or mob of bullies — and it happens daily.

So we start a separate social network here, on a relatively secure server located in Iceland, where what you make private stays private and no take-down notices are respected.

It is also a place to discuss things not acceptable for the Facebook surveillance team and — sometimes bigot-ish –.Facebook community.

We invite you to join and co-create the community. A  network can only be as good as the people who make it. Our goal is to grow it as a self-managed cooperative confederation. So we need you.

Join the Refugee Support Network here!

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
