No to Ap­ple

Vocable (All English) - - À 360° -

The city of Stock­holm has re­jected Ap­ple’s plan to pri­va­tize the city’s old­est park, Kungsträdgår­den, to build one of their stores. Ap­ple’s pro­posal for the park in­volves fun­nelling pub­lic space into pri­vate hands, by an­nex­ing 375 square me­tres of park­land around the plot it bought to build the store. One day af­ter tak­ing power, the city’s new gov­ern­ment stated that it would block Ap­ple’s plan be­cause Kungsträdgår­den is used for ma­jor cel­e­bra­tions, protests, and pub­lic de­bates.
