narrow streets and canals to a functionalist cityscape that privileged automobile access. Such urban planning was antithetical to a built environment that bred neighborhood cohesion and gezelligheid , a Dutch term that vaguely translates as warm coziness, with connotations of nostalgia and intimacy. In terms of the squatters movement, the Nieuwmarkt campaign enabled the squatters to transition from disparate groups that existed simultaneously to a network of interdependent squatters groups. The

movement, to origins, destinations, and directions, to means and methods of movement, and many more. But let us first look at how critical security studies have engaged mobility. If we were to pick one major theme, it would probably be that a main characteristic of the current politics of security is that it thrives on the openness of our times. Drawing on the work of Michel Foucault ( 2007 ; 2008 ) who argued that mobility (he

Passion and politics

racist elements are encountered within the movement but remain adamant that this does not mean the movement itself is racist. They point to the commitment to ‘kicking out racists’ and to making the movementopen to all’ (regardless of colour, ethnicity, faith, gender and sexuality) as evidence of this aspiration. Central to respondents’ understanding of the movement’s non-racism is its hostility towards traditional far right parties (especially the BNP). At the individual level, activists construct a non-racist self by mobilising a narrow definition of racism as

, promos for forthcoming demos or home videos of local divisions ‘on tour’ as part of a bonding practice that sustains the EDL’s ‘one big family’ ethos (see Chapter 7).23 However, social media is also a double-edged sword. While it has allowed the movement to generate and maintain extensive grassroots networks (Jackson, 52 Loud and proud: passion and politics in the EDL 2011b: 72), it opens the movement to ‘trolls’ and other dangerous beasts and is frequently the place where internal squabbles are played out in a destructive manner.

Managing overflow in science publishing
Sabina Siebert, Robert Insall and Laura M. Machesky

commercial publishers has been unexpectedly large and has led to criticism about ‘double dipping’ by journals that charge authors for open access to their publications, then charge libraries for subscriptions. Although many fully open-access journals, including PLOS Biology and eLife, have gained prestige, the attempts to break the commercial stranglehold of the big brands have so far failed – at least according to one editor: The main interest for me would be all the open access movement, all of the Wellcome Trust and Howard Hughes funding, eLife, and trying to break the

Implying that racism has become ‘stuck’ to the organisation rather than the beliefs and actions of its members, its former Chair notes that ‘until I joined the EDL, I never had to … say “I’m not racist”’ (Eddowes, 2015). EDL activists articulate their conviction that the movement is ‘not racist’ through three main narratives: the commitment to kicking out racists; the openness of the EDL to all (regardless of colour
