Virtual space

It is a simple WhatsApp group strictly to give and ask for gifts or, periodically, to disseminate other FCNs or events and organizations of the New Human Rights Movement (Gift Society). It is full (257 users), so it does not admit more users unless another user gives up his position because he lives and works in another municipality and has found or starts another gift-network there.

It can be used without trading but due to lack of admin and proper dynamization from the beggining it is now mainly for sale.
Virtual space

A Facebook group with more than 450 users. It is not very active, it would benefit from an administrator who would moderate and energize it. It has been invaded and dominated by flea market vendors, it seems to me that much of what is sold is not even second hand (clearly against the initial objective of the group). It is a good example of how commerce ends up eating everything if we do not take measures to protect ourselves.
