Hey everyone thank you for the replies, great points - loving it!!! Thanks for the hard work and dedication yall
Police - Definitely agree, we should not in any terms force anyone to report if they do not want it. But in case of this as you all said, support the victims in their own terms.
Reporting - Referring to Snurre - this is something that I was thinking about… Sometimes people do not want to report to the police, because they are scared, or shocked, or in denial, or they don’t want to deal with it right away. But maybe later on, they can change their mind. I think the most important thing is, that even someone would not want to proceed with the police or other officials, it should not mean we should forget the incident happened. There might be a case where someone would want to report later (also there is a possibility that later on we find out that that person assaulted multiple people), and I think we should have some proof what happened at that time. But as you said, then we have to think about other legal stuff, like how to store this information, who has the right and the key to the information, and so on… In this case it comes complicated. And it is lot of work as you said. I would not mind to do an initiative this, if I was not in the middle of my master’s studies and in other projects. I know that Nowhere had some kind of “report box”, I do not know what they do with the information, or what Borderland for example has, but I can try to find out.
Banning - Sometimes even telling the people that they are not welcome can be enough. I reckon the community is not too big in Sweden, that if the words spreads, it might be enough. Of course we cannot legally stop them, or take any other action that might be actually illegal in the end ( agreed that we should not act as “official authorities”), but let them know “socially pressured” that they are not welcome anymore, or possibly some cases after a period of time has elapsed, or they have shown remorse and a change in behavior (in less serious cases - aka. just being sleazy ass).
Photos - I also think we should not ban taking photos, because most of people want to take them/do not mind, but yes, we need to make sure photos are not taken or shared without consent.
Separate chat - Agreed that the information should we available for everyone, however what comes to the meetings and consistent communication, maybe the “urgent stuff”, and meeting appointments could be discussed in Facebook chat? Here it get’s kinda lost. Facebook is more clear in that sense, personally find this forum very confusing still hahhah
Pins - If not funded, we (Meaghan and I) might get them just as a gift with out own money they make a great gift and most people keep them as they are small and a nice memory, and less mooop than other discard-able items. Also a nice memento with an important message!
I created a google drive for Meaghan and I, and would love to share our “Consent folder” (I already drafted some trial posters) if we can make a big Urban Burn folder, and then put all the shared files under that? What do you think?
