European policy making is affecting our every day lives and civil liberties more and more. The EU is increasingly imposing unnecessary and disproportionate governmental surveillance measures on us. We are not willing to take this any longer.
Therefore we invite you to join us for about three days of
From 14. - 17. September 2012 (Friday till Monday).
We are starting in the afternoon of Friday afternoon, having one meeting room on our own from 1 pm.
The official ending of the meeting shall be on Sunday evening, but there will be some more "action" on Monday, September 17, as some people want to organize some meetings with people from the EU Commission and Parliament.
There is an offer to participate in a visitors Group by German NGO "FoeBuD" on Monday. You can get a travel allowance. Travel allowance See at the FoeBuD-Shop. If you want to join and visit the European Parlament with MEP Jan Philip Albrecht please contact
The international AK Vorrat mailing list is being used to talk about everything that needs to be discussed. The list is open to everyone, the list language is English. Please insert the tag [FNF] into the subject-line of any e-mail to make clear that its content belongs to this topic.
We would like to offer time & space to exchange thoughts and concerns directly. As we believe, networking beyond borders is becoming more and more important; therefore this "event" shall provide an opportunity to get citizen initiatives from different countries together.
We will thus have four days of "Freedom not fear" in Brussels:
14.9.2012 (Friday): Arriving, first meeting
15.9.2012 (Saturday): Slots of networking, lectures and talks in the morning, protest/demonstration in the afternoon
16.9.2012 (Sunday): Slots of networking, lectures and talks
17.9.2012 (Monday): Meetings with politicians (self-organized!)
We have collected some information to make getting to Brussels easier and to help you find some cheap accommodations.
Generally, accommodation has to be organized autonomously. But don't hesitate to ask in case of you have a problem.
Also, you can ask German NGO "FoeBuD". Thanks to funding from MEP Jan Philipp Albrecht, they are organzing a trip to Brussels with accommodation and partial reimbursement of travel expenses. They will visit the EU-Parliament on Monday and they will have a room to invite people from the Parliament and/or the Commission. Don't hesitate to ask them; it's an really easy way and everybody can join! Please see the info. and order your trip to Brussels via the FoeBuD-Online-Shop.
Tip: Don't forget to provide the data required for entry to the Parliament on the "Comments" section of your order.
