UC Berkeley students lose their health care coverage if they participate in riots

From UC Berkeley health care plan:

This Plan does not cover nor provide benefits for:

Expense incurred as a result of injury due to participation in a riot. “Participation in a riot” means taking part in a riot in any way; including inciting the riot or conspiring to incite it. It does not include actions taken in self-defense; so long as they are not taken against persons who are trying to restore law and order.

How can participation in legal or legitimate demonstrations (which is an expression of free speech) which turn violent suppress your health insurance? One more nail in the apathy coffin.

Spletni portal, ki bo demonstracije še približal ljudem

Article about the Exposer project in Dnevnik, Slovenian daily newspaper. It is described as a web portal which brings demonstrations closer to the people, as a way for those who are otherwise not using social networks to see what is happening there.

Vse demonstracije na enem mestu

Presentation of the Exposer project in Mladina, a weekly Slovenian newspaper, describing it as a place to learn everything about demonstrations in Slovenia.


Exposer collects all social posts from Facebook and Twitter containing keywords and displays them aggregated and in real-time. Useful to follow everything around those keywords. See live instance of all posts about demonstrations in Slovenia. And another collecting tweet testimonials of sexism.
