Monday, 19.9.2011 - Day of discussion


Day of discussion

We do not only like to protest and to remain within our circles. That might lead to simplified black-and-white-thinking and tunnel visions.

To avoid this and to proove our arguments we like to invite politicians and others on monday to get in contact with us and to discuss our topics and concerns.


Not fixed yet. See below "available rooms".

To make a plan out of it, we need to know, who likes to join us for this day:


We are really sorry, but European Bureaucracy is making problems:

To make you enter the buildings of the European Commission and European Parliament we need some personal data from you in advance. We try to get some alternative meetings outside of that "safety zones" but some people will probably not come to those places (only because of missing time for running around ...)

Therefore we need to know in advance, who likes to be part of the meetings and discussions with Brussels politicians.

Please give us follwing personal data:

  1. your name
  2. your full address
  3. nationality
  4. birthday and -place
  5. number of your ID-card
  6. preferences of people, which you like to meet:
  • special politicians from our list you prefer to meet
  • special topics you're interested in (e.g. data retention, RFID, net neutrality, ACTA ...)

We need this information at latest until Saturday, 10 September 2011!

With that we try to build up schedules for the monday as best as we can. Please don't beat us, if not everything works perfect ...

Send these informations wether to info(at) (pgp) or - if you prefer - to Michael via micha(underline)ebeling(at)mail36(dot)net (pgp).

Very probably (because of so much work to do) we will not give any response - you just have to wait and see.

We promise to use that data trustfully and only for this one purpose. We will delete all incoming mails and its data after the weekend!
