This photo might look very festive, but the reason behind all these lights in the streets is actually the opposite of joyous. My home province of Groningen, in the northeastern Netherlands, is home to the largest pockets of natural gas in the country. They have been extracted by the NAM and Shell, as ordered by the Dutch government, ever since the pockets were discovered over 50 years ago. All seemed fine and dandy until about five years ago, when an earthquake affected the northern half of the province and destroyed countless homes. Ever since, earthquakes have been happening around here frequently, and they are all caused by the gas extraction. Nobody has died from one yet, but people have gotten hurt, have lost their houses, or have seen their house lose half of its value. They live in fear, because the next one might be just around the corner, and that might be a big one. Monumental buildings have been irreparably damaged. Last week, on January 8th, Groningen saw the second-heaviest earthquake this otherwise geologically stable country has ever known. So today we marched. Ten thousand of us marched with torches, signs and banners. This must end, the gas extraction HAS to stop.

Fresh and (relatively new) #watchbrand #czapek used the frenzy in their #hometown #geneva for a demonstration of their recently found #focus of #contemporary #modernism . A great example is their new #tourbillon #suspendu

Mein #nadelkissen mit dem #tinydresden ist fertig! Ich habe das Motiv mit der Maschine auf den tollen #blumenstoff und eine Lage #vlieseline #appliziert und gequilted, dann ein #nadelkissen draus #genäht . Übrigens war mein Hauptgrund, an dieser #instachallenge teilzunehmen, der Name dieser #Nähtechnik 😊 / Yeah, I'm done with my #tinydresden #minipinnie #minidresdenpinnie ! First I machine stiched the #dresden onto the punk flower #fabric , then #quilted everything together with some batting and finally assembled the #pincushion . Btw, my main reason for participating here was the name #dresden which is my #hometown ! #tinydresdenparty by @quiltyobsession
