Democracy Whistle by flouSH Aug 2, 2012

Description

This is a derivate of the madkite "Whistle Redesign".

It's your powerful weapon in the fight against everything evil on the planet.

This thing is marked as "work in progress", as it's up to us to work continuously towards a free and colorful world.

Where was it originally used?
On August 2nd 2012 during a protest against the right-wing NPD event in Bayreuth, Germany. It was a huge success! Hundreds stood up against eight stick-in-the-mud NPD members. See here how they drive off after just an hour: youtube.com/watch?v=eUR8xVXIXRU

I guess the joke's on me then for being a little ignorant. I didn't know about the anti symbol. Thanks for clearing that up.

Valid reminder! That's true, but what's also true: They hollowed out democracy before taking complete power and turning everything into dictatorship.

And THAT's exactly why we (the people) need to remind everybody where the border is. Where democracy is endangered. Where we need to protect it. Speak out. Stand up.

That's the reason why we protested today. We call that "wehrhafte Demokratie" in Germany (the exact translation "militant democracy
" seems a bit aggressive to me, but may be right).

Hitler was elected democratically....

Instructions

- Print it and use it wisely against any kind of intolerance, anti-democratic behavior and inhumanity.
- I've attached a 1x scaled version as well as a bigger 1.5x scaled version (you need a strong breath for this one).

Printing tipps:
- When printing pipes always go for a thick extrusion. It needs to be air-tight!
- To ensure this: Better insert a slightly lower filament diameter in order to cheat your slicer to give you a rock solid extrusion.
- I've printed the 1.5x version with 0.25mm layers, three 0.4 perimeters and 10% infill on my Ultimaker. Don't use support - the bridging works perfect even on the very first layer of the top. Use retraction in order to have a clean interior. If you have strings remaining remove them with a screwdriver to get better acoustics.

I think we can do without the nazi swastika!! Please do yourself a favour and remove this obscenity.

flouSH on Aug 2, 2012 said:

You realized that it's clearly crossed, right? Don't want to offend here anybody.

A crossed swastika is a common sign for the movement of democratic people against right-wing rubbish within Germany (and the world).

I would love to add another whistle design with a more positive sign here which resembles our values: freedom, humanity, tolerance, democracy. Any suggestions are
greatly appreciated.

Florian, be careful, the nazi symbol is illegal in germany ;-)

flouSH on Aug 2, 2012 said:

E.g. google for the "Esprit swastika button" and you see how sensible German legislation is with this kind of stuff. Full story here: http://www.ejpress.org/article...

Quite ridiculous in this case :)

And that's the reason why it's crossed Daid!

It's a very delicate thing to use this symbol in Germany for good reasons. But using it in a clear "anti-" context is allowed by the German law: http://juris.bundesgerichtshof...
