First issue of "Dagens Stockholm"!

If you live in the greater Stockholm area, and if you travel by public transport today, I hope you will get a copy of the free newspaper Metro. The reason? This Tuesday Metro also includes a four-page newspaper called Dagens Stockholm ("Stockholm Today") that your present author/blogger is working with.

Dagens Stockholm will be published every Tuesday and Thursday for four weeks (April-May), and again twice a week for four weeks in August/September. The Social democratic party finances the newspaper, but we who are working with it have been given a free mandate to form the newspaper as we wish. Our basic idea is to write about politics in Stockholm from a bottom-up perspective, highlighting things that normally are not covered in mainstream media.

In our first issue we are writing about, for example, a reform in Stockholm that has established new clinics that you can visit if you have smaller medical problems. For example, if you feel sick or if you fell on your bike, you can visit one of these smaller clinics close to your home, instead of always going to the major hospitals.

Jonas Morian has already (of course) written about the first issue of Dagens Stockholm (here). If you have any suggestions or ideas, please send me an e-mail (or write a comment below)!

Hur får man tag på numret som kom ut igår? Jag missade nämligen det.

Om du går förbi Sveavägen 68 så ligger det en drös i receptionen, annars ska det (förhoppningsvis snart) finnas som pdf på www.dagensstockholm.se. Och imorgon torsdag kommer ett nytt nummer!
