ATTENTION: This wiki is old. There is a new wiki for Freedom_Not_Fear_2014 at [1]



This wiki-page is to collect ideas and texts to concretize our self-conception.


It seems to be unquestioned that

Freedom not fear

is the motto of our project. This assumption builds on the idea started in Germany five years ago.


The slogan is supposed to emphasize our vision of a society consisting of free, open-minded, creative and innovative people.


  • Committed to defend our fundamental rights in a modern world
  • Civil rights in a modern world
  • Taking/Bringing our fundamental rights to modern society
  • Defending Fundamental Rights in our Networked World



  • data retention
  • neutrality and freedom of the Internet
  • network neutrality


Proposal 1

This text is editable at the open etherpad It's open for everybody!

Today more than ever, European policy making is affecting our every day lives and our civil liberties in our home countries. Therefore, it is high time to show to our politicians, representatives and to every responsible person in the European institutions that we care. We we will not quietly accept directives, proposals or agreements anymore that are violating our fundamental rights as European citizens. We want to show our deepest concerns regarding the current European plans to review the data retention directive, to come to agreements with the US, Canada or Australia to transfer our passenger name records (PNR). We are very worried about the imminent signing of the ACTA and European projects to cut off Internet users for online infringements. The increasing number of unnecessary and disproportionate governmental surveillance measures as well as massive user data collection by companies on the Internet are more than worrying.

Therefore, we would like to offer you the opportunity to come to Brussels, join our three days project from 17th to 19th September 2011. At our "European weekend" we would like to

  • demonstrate for our right to privacy, for a free, open, uncensored and neutral Internet and for a respect of our fundamental rights and freedoms on the Internet and elsewhere (on Saturday).
  • have a Sunday of networking, meeting and workshopping.
  • organize a Monday of discussions and ask politicians from the European parliament, governments and European commission to meet us in order to exchange views.

Interested? Come and join us and our vision - everybody is welcome!

We'd like to develop a flyer for campaigning and to use as a hand-out around the demonstration and anywhere else.

The flyer should be provided it different languages, at least in:

  • English
  • French
  • Dutch
  • German

Proposal 1

Find here the first proposal, based on the very first available graphic and text.

It is just to give an idea of what such a flyer might look like.
